How to add Pocket to Sharing

Heads up! Jetpack version 2.2.2 and later include a Pocket sharing button already. You don’t need to use this tutorial unless you’re using a previous version of Jetpack.

I like to use the service Pocket. It’s a great tool in tandem with Google Reader and this IFTTT Recipe.

Both and the Jetpack plugin offer a service for adding sharing buttons to your site. Unfortunately, Pocket is not one of the available services.

There is, however, an option for adding the service on your own.

  1. First, log in to your WordPress Dashboard ( and visit the Sharing page (Settings > Sharing).
  2. Click on the ‘Add a new service’ link (under the Available Services section).
  3. In the Service Name box, enter Pocket.
  4. In the Sharing URL box, enter
  5. In the Icon box, enter
  6. Click the Create Share button.
  7. Drag the Pocket icon to the ‘Enabled Services’ section
  8. Save, and you’re done!
