You can print news, special announcements, and events. You can also share them via email, RSS, twitter, and Facebook. These shortcuts are displayed next to the alert icons when viewing an announcement or event. 

Social linking via Twitter and Facebook is only available on public sites which don't require a login, such as Class or Group sites with public access. Printing, email, and RSS is available for news, special announcements, and events on every site you have access to, regardless of whether it's a public site or not.

 

The Printing and Sharing Menu

The printing and sharing menu is available when you open a news item, special announcement, or event.

Below is what you would see on a public site. From left to right, the available options are: Post to facebook, tweet, email, print, set an alert , and RSS. 

On a private site, the facebook and twitter icons would not display.
