Write Your Politicians, Chime.In and More New Services

(Note: We’ve experienced a couple issues with our latest release, so if you come across any problems sharing to these services, it will be fixed soon. Apologize for any inconvenience. Please visit our support area if you have additional questions.)

We’ve updated the AddThis menu with some great new sharing services. Those services include:

  • Chime.in: a great service that allows you to connect around your interests
  • Beat100: a video sharing site
  • BufferApp: this service helps you to schedule sharing on your social media channels
  • Surfingbird.ru: a site from Russia that gathers the best content from around the social web

You’ll also notice a something in our menu that prompts you to Write Your Rep. This is an amazing service from RaiseYourVoice.us. RaiseYourVoice is a service that helps citizens easily contact elected representatives and connect with organizations supporting their aims.

If you are on a site that uses the AddThis sharing widget, click the Write Your Rep service and you will be prompted to enter your zip code. The tool will then find your local reps and candidates and let you send them a message!

RaiseYourVoice is a service we are especially excited about offering, as we believe civic involvement is very important. It is an election year after all — let your voice be heard!
