Is there any other word for sharing? or to encourage sharing?

Thanks in advance.

Edit:

I need to write something to encourage sharing information. (Let's share our experiences - something like this). I want to use some different words than usual ones. Please help.

  • Your question is too vague. Could you be a bit more specific?

The first alternative that comes to mind is "exchange" as in an information exchange or two people exchanging information.

You might also consider approaching from the "teacher/student" angle and use words like "explain," "enlighten," or "educate." Something like "Timmy, please explain what you did last weekend." or "Timmy, enlighten us as to your weekend."

  • Thank you. It perfectly fits. I used it here. area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/65414/gifting-ideas

  • Let's exchange IDEAS. ("Exchange" is a transitive verb and needs an object.)

  • But, honestly, "share" is much more elegant and and more appropriate for this register.

You might also consider pool

(US) to contribute to a pool, or common fund; make a common interest or form a pool (of)

Maybe you could say: Why don't we open up to each other?

    Did you mean open up? The answer sounds unnatural as written. Feb 21, 2014 at 3:36
  • It was a typo. Already edited it.
