"Good for blog to share the links"

What do you like best?

I find this software useful for blogs and websites with average requirements. The best part is you get to know the number of shares and other analytical data. I have used other tools also but this one has a separate dashboard and a panel to understand how the links are shared and how much engagement are you getting.

What do you dislike?

I did not like the user interface and the way it shows data because it is much short and not that much detailed to understand the real-time scenario. I suggest upgrading this software more of a social media specific and blog specifically to gain more users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Initially when you want to use this software do not expect too much but work on your basics and keep track of the engagement that you get. This way you will notice that slowly you are progressing and are able to understand all features of SHareThis software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To some extent, I found that this software helped with my initial marketing and content strategies. This way it made easy to share links to all social media platforms and get the traffic on blog in large numbers.

"Simple approach to expand the reach of your content"

What do you like best?

ShrareThis makes it incredibly easy to expand the reach of your content by allowing users with one simple click to share your articles to their social media platform of choice.

What do you dislike?

There aren't too many things about ShareThis that I dislike, but sometimes I feel that the 'share' metrics are not entirely accurate. I have found discrepancies in my data from time to time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that you have your website administrator place that code on your site for the ShareThis widget. Without proper implementation, your share button will not work properly and you will not be effectively using the tool!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are expanding our social reach organically by allowing our readers to share the content they find most valuable. Often times posting your own content organically falls flat. Seeing an article that a friend shares or recommends has a much greater weight.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simple to implement plugin. Make use of this to shave time and make it simple for your users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"share this is a fantastic tool to share with great ease of use!"

What do you like best?

share this is a fantastic tool to share with great ease of use! business viability lies in its collection and treatment of data about its users' activities. ShareThis knows which stories users engage with--the ones they forward and save. Compared with Google, ShareThis gets more interesting data from Web surfers.

What do you dislike?

Data collection is good but wishing there was more of it. There's great potential but room to evolve to a better data collection to a higher level will make this product one of the best if not the best. Data right now is half of the game to define whether you win or lose in any business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data collection is one critical component solved. Benefits realized if to have better analysis to define decisions.

"Best but need improvements"

What do you like best?

What I like is flexibility of buttons resizing and options of more social media buttons. Admin panel and the embed code is also very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

I feel the sharing buttons loads slowly. I feel they have to appear as fast as other local content. That's the only thing disappoints me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am now actually prefering ADD THIS for the same service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool actually makes my website easily sharable. I don't need to code for these buttons.These buttons also give me analytics of usage.

"Convenient social integration"

What do you like best?

ShareThis is a one stop shop for social integration across your website, allowing us to track engagement with the click of a button

What do you dislike?

The share buttons that end up on your website are quite slow and the interface that allows you to track engagement is quite buggy, without the option to go in and reconfigure it for yourself

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out, get started and once a pipeline is established, move on to bigger and better products

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ShareThis helped us to get stared quickly with social integration, ensuring that the content we post is easily available on almost all major platforms without any hassle. Most of the incoming traffic is through social media and chances are, ShareThis has led to a ton of this

"Works Well!"

What do you like best?

I love how I can share anything I find online with the ShareThis feature. It makes surfing the internet that much more seamless. For instance, when I am reading the news or surfing the net, I can easily share an article to my social networks with only a couple clicks without having to leave my current page or browser.

What do you dislike?

I wish that the ShareThis buttons were a tad bit larger. There have been websites that I visit where I did not see the buttons right away. When someone has to look for the button then using the ShareThis feature might be underutilized. For me, I usually want to share something impulsively and, oftentimes, if I cannot find the ShareThis feature then I am less likely to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At work, my position is a lot of community management and so I use the ShareThis feature often whenever I find things I know my networks will enjoy reading, watching, or engaging with online. I usually present LGBT news to my work platforms, and the ShareThis feature really allows me to do my work seamlessly!

What do you dislike?

I wish there were more ways to customize the look and styles of your buttons.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While I do know how to code, it's always a hassle to add individual sharing buttons for every social media platform.

Not much I dislike about the tool. ShareThis is pretty easy to use.
