More testing…

At AddThis, our goal is to help you get your content shared and seen by as many people as possible. Well, this week we’re going to be testing some content promotion and recommendation services that we’ve been working on. Chances are that you probably won’t see it but just in case you did, we wanted to give you the heads up. If you have any concerns or questions, don’t hesitate to drop me a line – justin@addthis.com

    Hi Justin,

    Is this an on-going test? Or just this week.

    I saw in the forum,there is a way to opt-out. But if it’s a short term test of functionality, we could ride it out.

    Thanks,
    AM

  • Ann-Marie, your correct. The test is just for a week. If you’d like to opt-out, you can do it on your side by adding a line to your javascript. More info here:

  • I would NOT like to participate in the “Related Items You Might Like” test.

    In other words, I OPT-OUT of this testing – hopefully that is clear enough.

    As well, I’m pretty frustrated / upset / disturbed / pissed that you just decide to pop in a stealth link in here without prior approval.

    The website that I have integrated AddThis into, wants people to stay on THEIR site, not get dragged off to another site.

    You really should have made this an OPT-IN feature – not an automatic inclusion with the ability to OPT-OUT.

    Otherwise, I love this service and appreciate your efforts in getting this all setup.

    I hope in the future you will take this into consideration. The only reason I even noticed this link is because I was in the process of trying to integrate AddThis into a new site.
