In our last release we added a “Share on Facebook” link to our details pages that when hovered over brings up a menu from AddThis letting you bookmark the home to your favorite social bookmarking service.
Before launching the feature we debated what the top service would be. Glenn, voted for Delicious, I voted for Facebook. In fact I thought Facebook would win by a long shot which is why we used the text “Share on Facebook” instead of something more generic like “Share on…”
Curious who won the bet we used the AddThis analytics feature to settle up. Here’s a breakdown of how many times the various services have been used:
Of course, maybe the fact that the link specifically calls out Facebook is the reason it is the leading bookmarking service :).
Here’s a breakdown by day.
In our next release we’ll add a Facebook icon in front of the link to increase its discoverability.
Big thanks to Dan, for pushing us to use AddThis.com, instead of adding only a Share on Facebook link.
