Today, we’re excited to announce two additions to our family of tools which make it easy to share the great content that you find online.
Over the last few months, we’ve seen tremendous success with the AddThis Firefox Add-on and Bookmarklets. Not only are people sharing with it, they’re sharing A LOT. We figured it was time to starting extending the same power of AddThis into other browser platforms.
You can now download the AddThis Internet Explorer (IE) Toolbar. Just like its older brother in Firefox, it will allow you to share the content you love to services that you love with just a couple of clicks, all using the AddThis functionality integrated right into your browser.
But the fun doesn’t stop there with the IE Toolbar; we’re trying something new. We’re adding a search box to the toolbar. Search (or discovery) and sharing are two pieces of functionality that go hand in hand. We’re anxious to hear feedback from our users and see how this will propel our users to share and connect over new and interesting content.
Just like we did with our Firefox Plug-in, we’re going to be promoting our IE Toolbar within the AddThis menu for those of you that are using Internet Explorer. Yes, this is self promotion on our part but the net result of people using the IE Toolbar is that they share more, which means they’ll be sharing your content more. It’s a win for all of us.
Additionally, today we’ve released our AddThis Moveable Type Plug-in. With this official plug-in, you can now easily integrate AddThis into your Moveable Type blog or Web site.
With this, we now have AddThis plug-ins for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and Moveable Type. What are we missing? We want to make it as easy as possible for you to make your content shareable so that it can reach every corner of the social Web.
