Tracking Destination References
When I collect a quote or a claim, I will often cite the source using multimarkdown cite keys, and include the full reference at the bottom of my note, i.e.,
> Here's a quote. [#202001241413] [#202001241413]: John Doe. *Some Big Fancy Book*. Vanity Press, 2006.
When I later share that quote externally, on social media (for example), I often want to track where I've shared it. This way, I can keep track of the fact I've shared it, identify if I've shared it in one place and not another, see how people responded to it, etc.
I'm not sure the best way to do this. What I do right now is use destination-specific cite keys. For example:
> Here's a quote. [#202001241413][#facebook] [#202001241413]: John Doe. *Some Big Fancy Book*. Vanity Press, 2006. [#facebook]: http://facebook.com/url-where-i-shared-it
This feels a bit ad-hoc, in that technically, I'm conflating all Facebook posts across my whole note system. Also technically, I'm not semantically distinguishing between "source" and "destination" references.
Can you think of better ways to do this? Perhaps in some other location? Perhaps in some other format? Perhaps modifying this approach in some way?
