More Sharing Equals More EyeballsEnable your audience to share your content across all of their social networks (such as Facebook and Twitter), with just one click. Learn more about FastShare.
Streamlined User ExperienceAllow visitors to easily share what they want, where they want, without leaving your website.
Lightweight File SizeThe file size is ~20k - which is comparable to our current widget.
|So, why the new widget?|
|The new widget is simple to install and keeps your visitors on your page where they belong. Users that share your content today have to leave your website to complete the process on Facebook, Twitter, etc. But, now visitors can share to multiple networks, quickly and easily.|
|Why do you ask me to Log-In to Facebook, Twitter or other sites?|
|ShareThis is using OAuth – an increasingly common log in utility, so that the entire sharing flow happens on your website. OAuth also allows users to simultaneously post to multiple destinations by remembering their sharing preferences.|
|Hmm.. but is this widget going to slow down my page?|
|Heck no! Our new widget is very lightweight (~20K) and the new widget has essentially the same file size as the old one. It should load faster than almost anything else on your page.|
|I already have the ShareThis button. How do I upgrade?|
|Simple. Just click here, you'll be given an additional line of code to add to your existing ShareThis code. It will indicate that you want to be upgraded to our new version.|
|But, I have the really old version of the buttons and the widget. What do I do?|
|Well, it's time to upgrade then. New widget. New buttons. Get it here!|
|I don’t have ShareThis yet, but I want to test this new button. How do I do it?|
|Click here to receive the code.|
|Can I try out different colors and themes?|
|Yes, click here for instructions.|
|Will the widget work on a secure page?|
|There is a https version of the widget which can be used on a secure page.|
|If I just want to test the new widget for a while, can I go back to the one I have today?|
|Sure. Just remove the line of code we provided for the upgrade and you’ll switch back to your usual share widget.|
