Hi Guys,

when trying to share the following url "" ( click on "Empfehlen" ) via g+, xing, linkedin and tumblr, we get the above mentioned error message.

Could you please look into this?

Thank you and kind regards,

This is probably related to a sharing outage we had earlier today. We've fixed it and sharing should be working now.

Hi Paul,

thanks for your quick reply. It's working again now, indeed!
It would be great if you could show a little more information about the nature of the problem in that case -- we spent quite a while debugging our code, until we realized the error wasn't on our side :-)

Thank you,
