New Follow Buttons, Including Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram

Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram and FourSquare have all been added as options in the AddThis Follow tools. They join the already available Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Flickr, LinkedIn and Vimeo buttons. It is now easier than ever to promote your various social channels on your site and encourage visitors to follow your brand.

As with all our tools, we want to give you insight into how the buttons are performing, so make sure you sign up for the AddThis analytics to see which channels your users are going to and even more than that – which pages on your site are actually generating the followers.

If you have any questions, please feel free to head to our support page and we’ll help you get some answers.

Measuring Your Fans and Followers

We recently introduced Fan and Follow buttons for your brand’s social media presence. Now it’s easy to track these buttons in your AddThis analtyics reports. These new reports show you how your followers break down across networks, and which content is generating these followers for you.

The Summary and Service reports show you a side-by-side comparison of your followers on different Services. In the Content Trends report, you will notice a new column in the Top Content table titled Follows. This number shows you how many fans or follows you garnered from that specific URL.




This is another addition to our suite of tools that allow you, as a publisher and website owner, to know exactly what content is driving not only social activity via shares, but actual followers of your brand. These types of social users are especially powerful as they care enough about your product that they want to receive updates and interact on a deeper level than just a one time share.

To start tracking your pages that are acquiring you the most followers, hop on over to our Follow Tools area and grab your buttons. We provide integration for multiple networks including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more.
