One way you can get even more out of Pocket is to share your reading list with others.

Selective Recommendations

There are two ways you can share your pocketed stories with other users. The first method is a native Pocket feature in which you can selectively share recommended reads with your contacts. The catch is that you can only do this from the iOS or Android apps.

To do this, open up the story you want to add to your Recommended List and tap the icon with the heart inside a speech bubble. When adding the story to your Recommended List, you can also automatically share that recommendation on Twitter and Facebook.


Anyone who follows you on Pocket will view your recommendations in their Recommended Feed. Your list is viewable at From there, you can also delete stories that you’ve added to your recommendations.


Share Your Entire List

If you want to share your entire list publicly, regardless of whether they follow you on Pocket or not, you’ll have to rely on a third party service.

By connecting your Pocket account to SharedList [No Longer Available], you can easily share either your entire Pocket reading list, your favorites, or stories with a specific tag. You can also choose to hide your unread list if you so choose. After you connect to SharedList, go to the settings to choose what you want to share.

Once you’ve connected your account, you should be able to share a personalized URL with anyone you choose, and can also share an RSS feed with others. Your public feed will also be available to other SharedList users.


If you decide you no longer want to share your reading list with the public, you can unshare your list from the same settings page.

    Hi, do you know why SharedList is no longer available? Is there any other way of achieving the same goal of sharing a list?
