New AddThis Pro Feature: Mobile Sharing Toolbar

Like most website owners, you’re probably noticing that you’re getting more and more traffic from mobile devices, like smartphones and tablets. And to help all those mobile users share your content, we just launched a new mobile sharing toolbar for AddThis Pro users.

If you currently use Smart Layers and have mobile enabled, you’ll recognize the share/follow toolbar that appears at the bottom of your phone’s screen when you scroll down. It looks like this:

Our new mobile sharing widget makes it even easier to share on mobile! Take a closer look at the animated gif above. You’ll notice the social sharing icons are big, bright, and square so they’ll catch your visitor’s attention and prompt them to share your page at the right time.

You can let it automatically show your visitor the top services they like to interact with or pick the ones you want it to show. You can do this by customizing your mobile toolbar in your dashboard’s tool gallery. There you can specify the share services by dragging and dropping.

And in case you missed it, you also have a new widget to explore in your dashboard: the responsive sharing buttons that adjust to the device and screen width. With the responsive share buttons (which you can place right under your page title, for example) and the mobile sharing toolbar (which appears at the bottom of the page), your users will have touch-friendly and mobile optimized sharing at their finger-tips!

If you’ve got AddThis Pro, you can head over to your tool gallery and start playing around with this new widget. If you’re not a Pro user (why not?!) you can become one quickly by upgrading today. We’re constantly looking to build more widgets that benefit website owners, so if there’s anything else we can do to help, leave a comment with your suggestion below!

  • Love this! My request would be more mobile-friendly content recommendation tools. I’m not sure if the “What’s Next” layer would work in a mobile setting, but I sure would love if it did…
