New Follow Buttons, Including Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram

Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram and FourSquare have all been added as options in the AddThis Follow tools. They join the already available Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Flickr, LinkedIn and Vimeo buttons. It is now easier than ever to promote your various social channels on your site and encourage visitors to follow your brand.

As with all our tools, we want to give you insight into how the buttons are performing, so make sure you sign up for the AddThis analytics to see which channels your users are going to and even more than that – which pages on your site are actually generating the followers.

If you have any questions, please feel free to head to our support page and we’ll help you get some answers.

    How come the twitter follow icon doesn’t go to the actual twitter account? It just shows your photo and like a few tweets and little info not the whole thing.

    The buttons do not even show up for me at all. Nor does the code snippet on the AddThis ‘Follow Us’ page for the button builder. None of this makes sense.

    The Instagram button is not a “Follow” button at all, it just links to the profile. Kind of a misleading title when I was searching for an instagram “Follow” button… For anyone else looking for this issue, http://www.instagramfollowbutton.com has a button which actually follows the person.

    Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t provide a one-click Follow solution (yet). The Instagram Follow button works exactly like the official button you would get from the Instagram site. In the future, if they provide a one-click solution, we’ll be sure to implement it. I would caution the use of the button on the site you linked to since it is a third-party app not provided by Instagram that requires access to your profile/followers to Follow someone. But thanks for the feedback, we’ll definitely update you if we get the one-click solution working.
