Creating a Blog system with social share buttons to each post

I was wondering if there was a way of creating a blogging system that on the initial blogging page is made up of blog post summaries and under each blog entry summary there are Facebook share/twitter share buttons that correspond to each blog post individually...So the Facebook share/twitter share will only share that particularly blog post summary rather than the whole entire page? The only way i can think of is to somehow use iframe to display each blog post summary. But that's as far as i got with my thinking...

Any thoughts or ideas?

or is the only way is to have the Facebook share/twitter share buttons on the actual blog post full page. So that in order for the user to share any of the blogs they would have to select which blog they want to share, then click on the link to take them to the full blog page for that entry?

Regards

Chris

I accomplished something similar using addthis (addthis.com), although it still provides a social link to the source post, not a summary. However, if you have a unique URL for the summary, perhaps by using an anchor tag, you should be able to make it work.

Hey thanks, your example http://www.greensboro101.com shows exactly what I am looking to do. Yes there will be a unique URL since its pulling the content from the same database so the URL will be a dynamic one.

I'm assumning the link to Greensboro is yours? Do you mind if you share the process of this? is it using the service from the other link you provided (addthis.com)

This page and its links will take you through the addthis API, it has some moving parts, but it's all there if you drill through it:
