If so, you may notice a few changes this week. Now, your users will experience a different flow when sharing your content via email.
To share via email, users must first click the icon with the 3 dots.
Users will then click on the email icon
Users choose their preferred email provider
This will open an email message window with a unique URL and your content
As a result, users will directly share your content from their email provider.
1. Click the icon with 3 dots
2. Click the email icon
3. Choose an email provider
4. New email window pops up where users can directly share your content to others.
Why can’t users email directly from the ShareThis pop-up window? We altered this functionality to increase users’ privacy and work in accordance with the policies of our integrated email partners. This helps ensure that the person sending the email is who they claim to be. Thus decreasing spam.
I don’t see the email option when I click on the ShareThis Widget. What happened to it? Don’t worry, its still there. Click the icon with the 3 dots and you will see the email icon. See above screenshot.
Can I get the old Email Workflow? In an effort to prevent mis-use of our tool for spam generators, the old email flow from the Multi Post Widget will no longer be available.
Will my Email Counter get affected by this change? Your email counter will not be affected by this change.
