Text it, tweet it, email it, Facebook it. When it comes to sending a link from Safari, the iPhone provides its users with plenty of ways to share online content. While there are many options for sharing something serious like a homework assignment or something fun like a video of a baby monkey riding backwards on a pig, the steps for sharing a link through your preferred platform are the same.

1 Share a Link to a Web Page

Open Safari and navigate to the web page you want to share. Tap the Share button, shaped like a rectangle with an exiting top arrow. An Options page will open. You can choose to share your link via text message, on a social networking site, and through email. Once you pick your sharing method, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the task. These will vary slightly from platform to platform.

2 Share a Link on a Web Page

Open Safari and navigate to the link on the Web page that you want to share. Hold your thumb or forefinger down on the link until a screen with sharing options displays. Tap "Copy." This will copy the link into your iPhone's short term memory. Navigate to the place where you want to share the link -- for example, navigate to the comment section on a blog or the body of an email message. To paste the link, tap in the body of the text box, and double tap the screen. A "Paste" button displays. Tap it, and send the link.
