Over the past several months, we’ve made sharing your favorite notes with family, friends and colleagues much easier. With today’s Evernote Web update, we’re giving you a lot of new and improved ways to share stuff with your network of friends and family. You can now share notebooks via Facebook, enjoy simplified sharing over email, a new Gmail connection and more.
NEW: ‘Connected Services’ Settings Tab
Evernote Web now has a new tab in settings called Connected Services. Go there to connect your Evernote account to Facebook and Gmail. Here’s what these new connections let you do.
Share Notebooks on Facebook
Once you’ve connected your Evernote account to your Facebook account, a new checkbox will show up when you share a notebook with the world: Share on Facebook. After checking the button and clicking Save, the notebook, along with the description, will instantly appear on your Facebook Wall. Anyone that can view your Wall will be able to click the link and view the notebook.
If you have a notebook that you have previously shared that you’d like to share with your Facebook friends, then go to the Sharing options for that notebook and you’ll see a Post to Facebook button in the Share with the World section. Clicking that button will take you through a standard Facebook sharing process.
Email autocomplete with Gmail
Connecting Evernote to your Gmail account makes the process of sharing notes with people you know much faster. When you begin typing the email addresses of friends, coworkers and classmates, the Gmail connection will autocomplete the addresses, so you’ll no longer have to cross-check email addresses with your inbox or standalone address book.
The same autocomplete functionality will also show up when you invite a friend to try Evernote. If you haven’t invited a friend, do it now.
Coming soon to more places
We’re continually looking for new ways to help you get more out of Evernote. Helping you easily share your memories is a big part of that plan. Today, we’ve added these features to Evernote Web. Soon, they’ll be coming to other versions of Evernote. Stay tuned for this and much more.
