I'm considering #739 as sharing for map links and #1361 as sharing for diary links. 

> We seem to be passing the diary entry title, and I'm not sure how we could pass an image - even if we could find the images (which would be hard) how would we choose which one if there was more than one?

Maybe just the first image?  It's better than nothing.   

Yes, I agree this is a hard problem.  Honestly I don't really think we should have diaries in OpenStreetMap.  We should instead focus our limited developer attention on making the best map possible.   But if we _are_ going to embed a barebones blogging engine, we need to at least make the content socially shareable.

How would you feel about splitting the diary code out into a separate repository?
