Sharing Overkill. The latest bloating factor for websites.

July 13th, 2011  |  No Comments

We recently had a conversation at Jivaldi about how best to use all the latest sharing and follow features that are out there. On the engagement/social side, we have Facebook ‘like’, Google +1 and Twitter of course. Not to mention LinkedIn.

And on the sharing site we have AddThis – which has an obscene amount of options for people to share (way too much in our opinion).

All of these tools are great, but what happens when we become sharing obsessed? See below.

The irony here is that Mashable is probably one of the most shared and followed sites in the digital industry. But this just goes to show that we can all get a little too obsessed in our quest to become a sought-after source of information.

Mashable, you are in no danger of losing readership, just simplify and make it a little easier for your readers.
