by | Aug 18, 2013 | Resources | 0 comments


As a new web technology, AddThis is an effective social bookmarking service that is easily integrated into an existing website by using a widget. The AddThis widget offers companies the best way to deliver targeted advertising to social media as a promotional influencer. With a single click, the user can instantly share webpages, news, photos, videos, blogs, or any other online content using a bookmark. Best of all, it is free.

As a social media sharing tool, there is nothing quite like AddThis. Being fully customizable, the widget can easily share content with hundreds of services that include Yahoo Bookmarks, WordPress, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Tumbler, TypePad, LinkedIn, Live, Mixx, MySpace, AIM, Blogger, Facebook, FriendFeed, Digg, Delicious and Google Bookmarks.

  • Easily Integrated – AddThis is easy to embed as a widget on any blog or website to offer instant sharing functionality to every user and reader.
  • Easy-To-Use – The process of sharing content online is no longer a hassle to readers. AddThis offers multiple options including direct access to email, micro blogs, and a variety of favorite social networks.
  • Analytical Tools – AddThis offers vigorous awareness to all of the sharing activity that has been performed on the blogger site.

AddThis is designed to be a community-driven platform that is founded on letting individuals share any online information, content or data to any other individual, anywhere in the world. There is no limitation on sharing content. It works as a switchboard for the Internet, and allows flexibility for providers and networks to let visitors click on the AddThis widget button.

The four types of buttons used for AddThis include Feed Buttons, Navigation Buttons, Bookmark Buttons, and a button for a podcast. A product button allows web publishers to promote products they sell. Bookmark buttons allow visitors to gain instant access to the information or content they wish to share.

In all, the AddThis social media sharing widget simplifies the process of obtaining and distributing online content.
