Tips for Finding the Share Link
Each website will have its own process for sharing links.

|VoiceThread||See → Getting a share link for a VoiceThread||Apply the same process for embedding a larger version of a VoiceThread|

The recipient can view, play, and follow it, and they can share with others who can also view, play, follow, and share it. If you’ve set the playlist to be collaborative, any recipient can also edit the playlist.|
|Genial.ly||See → Share a Genially interactive||A Genially must be published in order for it to be shared.|
