The History of a Share Icon


The share icon is one of the icons that really has a story. Unlike many others it needed to be created from a scratch. Why? Because a share icon should definitely be a symbol of something pretty abstract.

The share icon was specially created in 2006 by Alex King for his "Share This" plugin. In 2007 Alex started working with ShareThis company on building a new sharing tool, and the same year ShareThis bought his icon (along with the WordPress plugin code and ShareThis widget code), and also made it their logo.

But this share icon is not  the only one. After that different companies created their own share icons:

  • Microsoft

  • Apple

  • Google Android uses original and its own icon

Still there is no one generally accepted share icon.
