As we continue to expand our supported services, we’re excited to announce that now you can share to Viber, Kik, Yummly and EdCast with AddThis Share Buttons. This means that whenever your visitors see our share buttons on your website, they can click on the AddThis logo (the orange box with the white plus sign) and search for these different options.
Depending on which share buttons you have active, your visitors will start seeing these services as their personal default options once they’ve chosen them often enough. This makes it even more convenient for them to share your content to the places they love.
Here’s a little about each of the services that we added:
- Viber is a mobile messaging app that’s very popular globally. They have more than 606 million people on the platform.
- Kik is a mobile messaging app that’s very popular with teens. They have more than 240 million registered users. According to Business Insider, Kik users spend 97 minutes per week in the app.
It’s hard to deny the popularity of messaging apps on mobile phones today and the effect they’re having on traffic to websites. According to Pew Research Center, 36% of smartphone owners use messaging apps and 49% of smartphone users between the ages of 18-29 use messaging apps.
In addition to the two messaging apps, we added Yummly and EdCast.
- Yummly is a popular recipe recommendation website where users can share their favorite dishes that they’ve created or have chosen at a restaurant.
- EdCast is a “personal learning network to enhance human ability to collaborate and learn across educational materials, instructors, students and employers.”
To activate these new services, simply login to your AddThis dashboard and make sure that you update the supporting tools to also show these in your share options.
