The EOL development team is considering adding a “share with Reddit" button to EOL pages where similar buttons to “Tweet" and “Like on Facebook" are found.

Do you have an opinion? Please share it with me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweeting a message to @eol or @eolpm - and thank you.
