AddThis is looking for a few good men and women to join our growing team of superstars. In fact, we want to lure you into checking out our careers page with this new video we put together:
With the temperatures cooling down and students heading back to school, our Education segment has been top of mind. Many colleges and universities, such as George Washington University, use our tools on page and others, like Notre Dame, use AddThis for paid media services.
Throw on your jerseys and bust out the grill because college football kicks off in a couple hours. In a hat tip to the reigning Heisman trophy winner—the only college freshman to ever win the award—I thought it would be fun to take a peek at some Johnny Football related web data.
Debate and discourse around the use of online data will continue as federal and state legislatures and public standards committees like the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) all take up the issue once again after the summer break.
I frequently see support cases of AddThis disappearing from a publisher’s site without warning, and we’re unable to duplicate the issue on our end. These cases are largely caused by network connection issues on the user’s end, so here’s a quick primer on how to diagnose the reason we’re not showing up for you.
Like many others (around 4,000 in fact), we pitched our panel idea to the upcoming SxSWi event. And you’re probably getting swamped with “Please vote for my panel” messages. But we’re going to ask you anyway. Vote for our panel, “The Privacy Collision Course!”
Here’s why we need your vote, and why this session important.
A couple weeks ago, I came across an awesome post by Ariel Meadow Stallings about Smart Layers. She won me over with her sweet graphic skills:
Smart Layers is an extremely user-friendly tool. It’s designed to invite your visitors to share your content, show them cool content, and even try to convince them to stay in touch with you on your social networks. But to some of your visitors, Smart Layers may come across a little “stiff.” Just like your parents and grandparents, Smart Layers isn’t always up on the latest slang or teen vernacular. That’s why you can customize!
This morning, AddThis released the Emergency Warning Smart Layer project to our Labs pages. As we discussed in a previous post, this was a multi-partner collaboration that culminated in the successful completion of the code at our Hackathon last week.
