    You probably don't need a screener form anymore. You can run software in the background that can predict—to a reasonable degree—if you've actually read an article or not. It could watch things like time on page, scroll behaviors, etc. This is basically how Google's reCAPTCHA works. If it passes, show a share button. If not, don't.

    This is probably tougher on desktop browsers where the user can just grab the URL and paste it anywhere they want.

      Hey! I see what you are saying, but I like the concept of adding a friction layer to the share of articles. I like the idea of making it a little bit harder compared to what it is now. I think it could help to develop a different perspective on article sharing!
