AddThis Introduces New Sharing Analytics And Live-View Dashboard
The sharing platform adds new features that let users see all sharing activity from their website in real-time.
The sharing platform AddThis has launched some new features that improve how users track sharing and traffic on their website. Address Bar Sharing Analytics measures the amount of times users share your site by copying the URL from the address bar and sending it to others via email, IM or a social network. This is the simplest form of sharing and often the biggest source of viral traffic, but it is usually misreported as being direct traffic.
Another new feature is the Live View dashboard, which enables site owners to see shares and clicks as they happen in real-time. Opening up the Geo Live View map displays the sharing and clicking around the world in a visual format. AddThis have also introduced the ability to track activity from the Facebook Like, Twitter Tweet, LinkedIn Share, and Google +1 buttons.
