There are a few different ways you can share single notes from your Evernote account: you can post them to your social networks, email them, or copy a public link to a note that you can send any way you like.
When you share a note with your social network and via a public link, you’ll notice that it’s presented in a beautiful new Web format (thanks to a recent redesign).
- To share from the Web: Simply select the note you’d like to share, then hit the arrow in your formatting bar. From the dropdown, select if you’d like to share on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, via email, or by creating a public link.
- To share from your desktop: Follow the same instructions as above. Instead of clicking the ‘Link’ option, select to Copy Share URL to Clipboard. Then, simply paste the link into your browser, calendar invite, document, or IM client. On your Windows machine, you’ll find the share button in your Toolbar.
- To share from your mobile device: Tap on the note, then tap the arrow or sharing icon next to the editing pencil (if you’re using an Android device) in your formatting panel at the top or bottom of the screen, depending on the device you’re using. Your sharing options will include: Facebook, Twitter, Email, and Print.
When viewing a Shared Note in your browser, notice that you can save it to your Evernote account and re-share it to your network. This is useful when someone else has shared a note with you that you’d like to remember.
