Get inspiration by hovering over a friend’s picture to see what they’ve read.

Recommend articles and discover new stories using TheVine social reader. The reader allows you to seamlessly share articles with your Facebook friends by automatically generating a list of your most recently read articles.


Invite your friends and start sharing articles.

You can send an individual invite from a suggested list of friends by clicking on their greyed out profile picture. If you can’t see a friend’s pic or you want to invite multiple friends, click on the ‘add friend’ icon to bring up a list of all of your Facebook friends to start inviting.


You have full control over what you want to share with your friends.

You can hide a single article by simply un-checking the “Add article to my activity” box. Or you can go through your activity list and remove any articles you don’t want to share with your friends.

You can turn sharing off altogether if you want to read in private.
