New! Expanding Share Button for Your Site

expanding share button

We’ve seen a 32% increase in mobile shares over the past year across the AddThis network, inspiring us to introduce a mobile-optimized Expanding Share Button to our paid Pro and Business plans.

What is the Expanding Share Button?

Glad you asked! This new space-saving, mobile-friendly feature leverages material design principles, which allows it to expand on hover or click to reveal a variety of sharing options to your visitors.

The Expanding Share Button works across all devices – including desktop, mobile and tablet. As with all our other share buttons, you can customize the number and composition of the sharing services you’d like to display.

    hi

  • Anyone try this yet? Looks cool but I’m worried about losing shares on mobile. The bottom share bar has the icons visible right away, one less tap.

    I am trying to set it up but there is no “Get the Code” button shown after I activate it.

    I am trying to set it up but there is no “Get the Code” button shown after I activate it. Do you know what the embed code is?

  • Hi Charles, if you haven’t already installed the AddThis code on your site, you can do so by logging into the AddThis dashboard and going to “Get the Code” in the top navigation bar. Instructions on how to add it to your site can be found here: http://www.addthis.com/academy/how-to-install-addthis-code/

    Hey AddThis team, we’re running into an issue with this tool. When we activate the Expanding Share Button, it’s not appearing on our site. We’ve already verified that we have the code snippet correctly added, because when we turn on the other share tools (like the Sharing Sidebar and Custom Sharing Sidebar), they do appear. Is there something specific to the Expanding Share Button that we’re missing? We have a pro account too, so that’s not part of the problem.

  • Hi Jonathon, sorry to hear you’re having issues with this button. Would you mind please emailing our support team directly at help@addthis.com with a link to the site you’re working on? That way our support team will be able to take a look and see what the issue is. Thanks!
