Share Dit is 50% fan in geweldige applikaasje

sharethis.pngWannear Diel dit lansearre, wie ik entûsjast de list fan firale ikoanen dy't ik op 'e side hie te ferwiderjen en te ferfangen troch ien ienfâldige knop. It probleem is dat de knop in mislike mislearring is op myn blog. Op berjochten dy't hûnderten trochferwizingen hawwe en tûzenen fermeldingen oer sosjale mediasides, waard ShareThis minder as tsien kear brûkt!

The problem with ShareThis is that it's net maklik foar de lêzer.

Let's say, for example, the reader wants to share a story they found on Twitter.

  1. Se mûsje de ShareThis link oer.
  2. Se moatte klikke op Twitter.
  3. Se moatte in oanmelding leverje.
  4. Se moatte in wachtwurd opjaan
  5. Se moatte klikke peal.

Tefolle stappen. Fierstente folle stappen.

I state that ShareThis is 50% because they pay a lot of attention to the publisher experience and not enough attention to the users' experience. ShareThis has the potential of being a great application if they do one simple thing – meitsje it makliker te dielen.

Sharebox was a great feature addition – users can now view the items they've shared. It's not enough, though.

As brûker soe ik kinne kinne ynlogge op ShareThis ienris en set myn sosjale netwurken op ienris, As ik in oare webside besykje ... moat ik al ynlogd wêze op ShareThis, sadat ik gewoan op in knop kin klikke om dizze troch te jaan oan Twitter, Facebook, of in oar netwurk (sawat Tweetmeme does for Twitter). No logging on… no filling in details (unless they're optional)… just share!

I look forward to seeing how ShareThis evolves in 2010. I'm keeping it here on the blog because it does provide some value. The potential is much, much more though.

Wat tinksto?
