McLean, Va. - July 19, 2011 — Clearspring, provider of the largest online content sharing platform, announced today that it was named to the 2011 AlwaysOn Global list of 250 Top Private Companies in the category of digital media.

Clearspring also continues to grow its advertiser offering, leveraging its proprietary real-time data processing engine to aggregate and synthesize anonymous influence and intent data from across its AddThis platform. Clearspring builds and delivers these valuable audiences to agencies and advertisers through partnerships with today's leading ad exchanges, demand-side platforms and trading desks.
