It’s summertime but we’re not hitting the beach (yet)! We’ve been working hard to get product updates out the door, from a fancy new tool configurator to GDPR-related items. Here is a list of what’s new with AddThis:
New Tool Configurator
It’s easier than ever to add and update your AddThis website tools with our redesigned Tool Configurator. The dashboard now has tabs for better navigation and we’ve moved around some other features for a more simplified process.
Download Your Email Lists!
If you are using our List Building tool to help capture your visitors’ email addresses, we’ve recently made a change that requires users to download their lists every 6 months. AddThis will no longer be storing your email lists indefinitely. It is a good practice to consistently and frequently download the CSV file associated with the tool anyway, especially if you are sending out marketing emails regularly.
GDPR & AddThis
We’ve received a lot of questions about GDPR, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation that went into effect in May. Because of all the inquiries, we put together a helpful FAQ guide that will give you the rundown on how this impact the AddThis tools.
AMP Beta / Early Release
Heard of Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages project? (We’ve written about it here and here!) We’ve quietly released a very early version of an AMP sharing plugin–the first third party plugin to integrate with the project! We’re looking for early adopters to give it a try and provide us with feedback.
