New Share Widget – Tool to increase audience engagement

Here at OSM we do like to give our readers news about innovations and today we hear of a new sharing tool, designed to increase audience engagement. The tool, currently in beta form, enables simultaneous sharing between Facebook, Twitter and others and could be useful for websites of all kinds.

This news comes to us from ShareThis and its Share Widget Beta has now been launched. It’s free, convenient to use and simple to install, and could help you get your message across in a more wide-reaching way than previously.

Just some of the benefits are that the people you hope to reach can share your message to all of their social networks with one simple click, which of course means more views for your content. Users can also share without having to leave your website which can only be a positive. The Share Widget is also customizable, features SSL/HHTPS security and has a file size of only 20k.

You can find out more about the Share Widget beta here where you will also find a useful FAQs section. We feel this could be a really useful addition to many websites but would like to know your thoughts on this so do send in those comments please.
