Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I get the following message while trying to share a question from a non-public beta site on Facebook:

Log In - Code Golf - Stack Exchange
Warning: this site is currently in private beta for 6 more days. Unless you committed to its Area 51 site proposal, you won’t be able to log in!

While I am fully aware why this happens, my question is, while sites are non-public should the share links be included at the bottom of a question.

Because they are just about useless if the site is non-public, and a little confusing if you are not familiar with how authentication and the web works.

Private betas no longer have a share link.

This has already been rolled out to the entire network.

Is this new, fixed now due to this report, or was it already in place for unknown amount of time? :) – Shadow Wizard Jul 3 '13 at 9:04
Well, they do appear to have the link (handy if you're sharing something in chat / etc with others that do have access) - but the social icons are not present on private betas. – Tim Post Jul 3 '13 at 9:07
@ShaWizDowArd - Nick Craver was looking through the bug lists and fixed it. I am just reporting it. – Oded Jul 3 '13 at 9:32
