  • What is your biggest advantage against AddThis?

    One of GetSocial's main focus is on providing the easiest experience possible to our users. This includes easiness of installation, usage and understanding of available features. We'd say that with your knowledge base, tutorial videos/pages and also super quick support that we have quite the advantage on the experience side. On another level, AddThis can become very expensive for websites who have some traffic, specially after the 100,000 pageviews.

  • What should I expect to be different from AddThis?

    AddThis is a great tool when it comes to the sharing and engagement levels of social media. However it lacks to go with the user throughout the whole consumer journey. GetSocial not only allows you to define conversion points in the consumer path, but also gives extensive information about how each social network is driving you traffic and conversions. On the item/post level, we activelly help our users to understand, in real time, which kind of distribution channels are making their websites grow stronger, faster.

  • What do you mean by sell data?

    One thing we must applaud is the transparency on AddThis' privacy police. It doesn't get much better than that. However, AddThis makes money out of your data. They don't install any tracking software in your website nor they have access to personally identifiable information unless you provide it to them. They do nevertheless access certain amounts of data generated on your website (about your visitors) and develop profiles of similar interests/behaviours to sell to advertisers. GetSocial's business model is purely focused on PRO & Enterprise subscriptions. No more.
