It’s hard to believe we’re wrapping up another year. In New York, the recovery from Hurricane Sandy continues, the tree in Rockefeller Center is lit, holiday window displays have been unveiled and Times Square awaits the ball-watching crowds of New Years Eve. It’s a spirited time that always inspires a nostalgic look at the year gone by and renewed perspective for the year ahead.
Much has happened at AddThis and across the industry. We acquired XGraph and changed our name from Clearspring to AddThis. Facebook went public, Pinterest exploded onto the scene and Yahoo! got a new CEO. The year’s most shared events globally related to Osama Bin Laden’s death, Occupy Wall Street and ….for whatever it says about us …Kim Kardashian’s divorce.
As we head into 2013, we’re helping 500+ major brands activate data across paid, owned and earned media. Our social platform is used by more than 14M domains reaching 1.3 billion users worldwide. It’s been an incredible year for us, and we’ll stay maniacally focused on data driven, easy to use, powerful products and services to create deeper consumer engagement. We’ll grow because you’ll grow.
Life is about addition, so from the entire AddThis team, a big thank you for all the work that you do to add rich content to the Open Web. Below are a few of the things we added. To see this year’s sharing trends, check out our annual end-of-year sharing trends infographic.
