The 'share a link' badges (Announcer, Booster and Publicist) work for answers as well as questions. This is reflected in the FAQ but not in the badge descriptions:

Can this please be changed to

Share a link to a question or one of its answers later visited by X unique IP addresses

    I think saying "question or answer" makes it even more confusing, because it makes it sound like the badge can be awarded to answers also, which isn't true. I think the FAQ clarifying that answer links contribute towards the count for the parent question makes more sense.

    Ah, you mean that when I share two different links to a question (the Q and one A, or two separate As) they'll count together for an Announcer badge to the question. Maybe the new wording is better – it's more clear that the badge is awarded for the question.

We were notified of a bug in the badges and during our investigation, we decided that it made more sense to have these badges be tied to Post instead of Question. All of the badge descriptions have been updated to:

Share a link to a post

More details on the change are available in my answer here.
