Sometimes the Sharebox for 'Share this link' will pop up after I upvote a question, but I didn't click on the facebook or twitter icons.

This is a little annoying and I assume it is not supposed to happen.

    I've noticed that the Share Link box pops up when opening a question. I just assumed I was clicking too much.

    Really the Facebook "post to profile", right? And not the "share a link to this question", which is by design.

  • (Hehe, I was actually asking Tobe, but I now understand that @Dave surely saw the "Share a link" box.)

  • This is by Design! I'm not sure I agree with the design. If it went away when I clicked elsewhere It wouldn't be so bad.

  • Also if it is by design, it doesn't seem to happen every time.

    @TobyAllen: read Jeff's answer in the linked question. It's by design that it's random.
