Work to build Share on top of OWA and Web Activities is largely complete. Further work towards feature completion is in progress and Product is working with the Firefox Engineering to plan out a schedule for integration.
This work is scheduled for 2H12.
Stage 1: Definition
1. Feature overview
This is the bare minimum pieces needed to use the F1 share feature built into Firefox with a single working account.
- Updated requirements (Q1'12)
- Use the iframe from each given service (FB, Twitter, etc.)
- Link sharing with commenting for most services
- Shift from current implementation
- Improved confirmation so users know the link was sent/submitted (this may be taken care of by the service)
- UX recommendations needed
- We will support email services and hook it up to "send link" which maps to the default mailto: service
- Create a new "share" icon
- UX recommendations needed
2. Users & use cases
- See F1 Use Cases
- Simplify the sharing system away from cut & paste of links
- Improve the problem of choice of services for both the producer and sharer by creating user preferences built into the choice
- Minimal F1 UI needed for landing bug 642684
- Firefox Accounts/Preferences bug 645802
- New Firefox Panel bug 646245
- Twitter Account bug 647578
- F1 Name & Copy bug 648892 - "Share"
- Icon bug 648894
We are not developing all accounts at once, the rewritten Share addon currently only supports Twitter, Facebook and GMail, though long-tail support is possible with OWA.
Stage 2: Design
5. Functional specification
This is the addition of another share account to the working share feature, creating 2 working account types.
