    Is there a way to know who is sharing your posts? It just tells you which posts were shared through each methods. I know with things like Facebook and Twitter there are privacy issues so they may not provide this information, but shouldn’t “Press This” tell you who is pressing your posts since it’s in WordPress?

    Also, when you click each shares number the link is still broken. Replacing the & with a ? in the URL works as a temporary solution. I posted about this problem quite a while ago but there doesn’t seem to be a solution yet…

    Thanks for your response!

    The blog I need help with is



    We do not have access to information that identifies those who click Twitter, Facebook buttons and the like. That’s because it’s a privacy issue controlled at the opposite end of things.


    Thanks for responding. I thought that was the case for external sites, but for WordPress, I thought I saw a screenshot (now of course I can’t seem to find it) in the Support section somewhere showing a list of blogs that used Press This for your posts. When I click to see the details for Press This, it just tells me the posts that were shared, not which blog shared them….am I wrong?



    I’m sorry but I don’t know why you think using Press This is related to clicking sharing buttons on posts
    They are not related.


    Thanks for responding.

    In “Stats”: When you click “Shares” under “Totals, Followers and Shares”, the number of how many shares you’ve had comes up. When you click the number, a list of “Top Sharing Services” comes up, listing the sharing services that have been used on your blog. “Press This” is one of them. That is why I think Press This is related to sharing buttons….and that’s why I’m asking whether we can see what bloggers are “pressing” my posts? That’s all.

    The broken links are just making things very confusing to me. I’m not sure I’m seeing what I should be seeing.

    I’m sorry if I’m not being clear in what I’m asking.



    Now I understand exactly what you mean. I’m sorry I didn’t get you previously and I apologize for being dense. I’ve flagged that thread for a response from Staff. Please be patient while waiting.


    Thanks a lot! I appreciate it.



    No, we don’t have stats for that at this time.

    Eventually, PressThis will be replaced by the ReBlog feature, which does notify you of who ReBlogged the post.


    Good to know, thanks
