One of the most important ways that AddThis increases overall sharing is personalization: Replacing our default list of services with the places where a given person (including you!) has already shared. You may notice that the services you see in our menus or rows of toolbox icons look familiar; we’ll replace up to 11 default services with the most recently used destinations.
Here is the code used to generate it:
<div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style"> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_1"></a> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_2"></a> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_3"></a> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_4"></a> </div>
Don’t want personalization?
If you prefer to over-ride personalization in your toolbox in order to show specific services, you can do so by specifying the buttons you want to show by name:
<div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style"> <a class="addthis_button_facebook"></a> <a class="addthis_button_twitter"></a> <a class="addthis_button_email"></a> <a class="addthis_button_linkedin"></a> </div>
We encourage you, however, to take advantage of automatic menu and toolbox personalization. You’ll see an increase in overall sharing of about 20%, particularly from your site’s international visitors, who use many of our other hundreds of sharing services!
