    Yes very easily - both in the stock Events plugin with the core and via 3rd party plugins. If you just do a little digging and look at the demo and/or your own install you will be able to easily see and figure these things out on your own

    You can use our "Professional Share Plugin" to easily enable sharing from your website on various Social networking sites.

    This plugin will provide you various options to share your site's content like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, etc.

    You can also use our Social Meta Tags plugin which is available in Certified marketplace here: https://www.socialengine.com/marketplace/app/social-meta-tags-plugin-1 .

    This plugin does not provide sharing option, but will enhance the sharing from your website on other social networking sites by sending images, titles and descriptions of content being shared.

    If you have any further doubts in using any product or setting up the plugin, then you can reach out to us at sales@socialenginesolutions.com .

     

    Regards

    Team SES

    Hello.
    Mikel here.

    I have thought about this type of plugin for awhile. How ever I have reservations about linking to other sites such as facebook, and others. Specifically 'sharing information' and possible members information and 'cookies'.
    Question: does linking to another site and 'sharing' add further issues about GDPR, because as far as I think of it, if I 'link and share' to another company does that company then become a 3rd party company which could affect the GDPR issue ?

    thanks

    Yes, you are right here. You are just allowing users of your website to share content which is Public on your website to other websites. SE has privacy settings for each content, so users who are authorized by content creators can only share them.

    You can also use our "Professional GDPR Plugin" on your website which has a consent option. Users will see the cookies being used on your website until they provide their consent. They can also contact you regarding various concerns like DPO request, Subject Access Request, etc from within the Privacy Center Page (created with this plugin) of your website.

    Though, we are not Legal Advisors, however, we feel that GDPR is not eligible for content sharing as Wikipedia states: 

    "GDPR addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. It aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU".

     "if I 'link and share' to another company does that company then become a 3rd party company which could affect the GDPR issue ?"

    Our answer is NO here. It will not affect the GDPR issue.

    Using our  Social Meta Tags and Open Graph Plugin, users will be sharing the content from the SocialEngine Website they are a part of, to other Social Networking Websites and not that user's personal information such as First Name, Last Name, and Email ID so that it affects the GDPR Issue.

    If you need a plugin to make your Website GDPR Compliant, then you may go for our "GDPR Compliance Plugin".

    Thank You SEAO.

    Ive been very cautious about sharing / linking content to other sites.

    In the past ive had some issues with linking as some sites requireing cookie access and information sharing rights.

    That's why I don't like linking.

    thanks

    As suggested you in our above reply, you can checkout our Professional Share Plugin, using which you can enable / disable the 3rd party social networking sites as per your requirements.
