Sharing from Pocket for Firefox

Introduction

Pocket’s website provides multiple ways to share your saved items. You can share items via Send to Friend, as well as to several social networks and services.

To share an item from Pocket, first open Firefox, then click Bookmarks > View Pocket List to return to your list of saved items.

Then click the Share button associated with a specific item to reveal the sharing options.

Sharing with Send to Friend

Send to Friend makes it easy to share items with others without leaving the Pocket website. When you share using Send to Friend, the recipient will receive an email with a link to the item. If they also use Pocket, they’ll see a notification and have the option to save the item directly to their List.
