More testing…

At AddThis, our goal is to help you get your content shared and seen by as many people as possible. Well, this week we’re going to be testing some content promotion and recommendation services that we’ve been working on. Chances are that you probably won’t see it but just in case you did, we wanted to give you the heads up. If you have any concerns or questions, don’t hesitate to drop me a line – justin@addthis.com

Temporary Server Issues

We are experiencing issues with some of our servers. We are aware of the problem and working on it. This is not affecting the availability of our widget. It is only affecting our website and the bookmarking and sharing functions. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will update this post as soon as the issues are resolved.

Update: Problem solved. Both the website and the bookmarking/sharing functions are working again. Luckily, the downtime was short and the effects minimal. Thank you for your patience.

Faster! Faster!

In a continuing effort to improve AddThis, we have decided to move it to a new platform. With new requirements to reliably deliver the widget over 200 times per second (yep, you read that right), this was only a matter of time.

So during the next few days you will start noticing significant improvements in the speed of delivery of the AddThis Widget. The delivery will also be more reliable as the new servers will do load-balancing; if one server becomes overloaded with traffic the others will immediately jump in and take on some of the load. The transition to the new servers will happen completely seamlessly.
