Double Your Shares with the Personalized Toolbox

Did you know that by using the personalized version of the AddThis Toolbox on your site that you can see a 2x increase in sharing?

This shows the AddThis personalized Toolbox with the 32x32 icons of places previously shared or based on browser language and popularity.

Visually, the personalized Toolbox looks the same, but oh, it does so much more! For this personalized version, we have done voodoo magic so the toolbox will see each unique visitor to your site and show that person options which encourage them to share the MOST. We look at browser language and favorite services, among other things, to determine which services to present in the menu. For example, internally, the AddThis team loves to share and communicate via Yammer, so when many of us come across a toolbox anywhere on the web, we’re shown the recognizable Yammer icon. Wow, magic!

You can also personalize any AddThis menus on other implementations - here you can see it with the share counter.

If you were one of the publishers to implement the Toolbox when we first introduced it, well, you are very smart! But more importantly, you may now be missing out on this extra feature that very likely will increase your sharing. So, make sure you grab the newer code and get double the sharing!

If you have any questions about adding the personalized Toolbox to your site or about updating your implementation to have a personalized menu – please reach out to us and we’ll help you through the process.

    I think this AddIn is very nice. I have tried it and liked it. I hope it will not damage my browser or spy on me in any way.

    Hi,

    I just installed the new version on my WordPress website. It does not function as it should. The Add This button on the homepage appears where it should, however if you tweet the post it only takes the websites title and not the title of the piece that is shared. This is different from the previous version.

    When you go into a post the share buttons appear on the left top of my screen and not below the post. Strangely enough when you try to tweet from here it uses the correct title.

    Please let me know how to fix this because the button is very popular on our website!
