now this is pretty damn cool… we just just released a new feature on AddThis, called the Service Directory, that allows site owners and publishers to submit their service to us and get their sharing services listed in the AddThis menu… basically just opening it all up, which is pretty badass.
so naturally, i played around one day and created a quick “sharing page” or endpoint that allows you to easily share something you might see out in the wild and post it right to my little humble site here… we’ve been working on this for the last few weeks or so, and it’s totally tripping me out, man. here’s a quick walk-through of how it works:
Click on the “share” on GameTrailers, and bring up the “more” menu…
Filter the service listings by typing in the first few characters of “forgetfoo”
Click on “forgetfoo” and you land on my sharing page…
Click on a shared link, and you see the sharing “FooBar”. heh.
the sharing FooBar is cool because it allows you to retweet the page, post it to facebook, email it, etc… oh, there’s also a bookmarlet on my share page that you can drag-n-drop to your browser Bookmarks Bar (Firefox, Chrome, Safari), which comes in damn handy.
check it out and lemme know what you think!
