Last month we said the number of AddThis buttons served each day would probably reach the 1,000,000 milestone by the end of January. After writing that entry, we looked at each other and said: “Can we really do this? Maybe we should have said February!”.
Well, we are happy to report that our prediction was absolutely on target. As of yesterday, AddThis is serving over 1,000,000 buttons per day. To put it into perspective, that’s about 40,000/hour, 700/minute, or 11/sec. Not bad…except for the bandwidth, ouch!
So moving to new servers was an absolute must if we wanted to continue to provide a reliable service and a fast delivery of the buttons. Maybe this is a good time for removing that BETA sign from our website.
Anyway, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for using the button. Please continue to spread the word.
May the Social Force be with you! :-)
