Quora LogoQuora is growing fast, mainly because of the rich user-generated content. Like other social sharing buttons, I’ve came across the need of Share to Quora button.

This button can be made in WordPress.com, and WordPress.org users can also use by installing JetPack Plugin.

Sharing URL: http://www.quora.com/board/bookmarklet?v=1&url=%post_url%

Icon URL: https://tweetpluslike.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/quora-icon.png

Now move your newly created button in Enables Services Area. 🙂 Done!

Furthermore, if you want to create Custom URL to Share on Quora for any webpage, or pdf file. Just add the following URL
