Just because AddThis is now free, doesn’t mean we’re slowing down on pushing out more great features and functionalities! We recently rolled out AddThis Inline Share Buttons for AMP and it is ready for you to integrate into your AMP compatible site.
A bit of background: AMP project (spearheaded by Google and others) is a new open source initiative that stands for Accelerated Mobile Pages and is meant to improve the mobile web browsing experience by speeding up ensuring web pages are fast and smooth loading. There are also a few other advantages to setting your website pages up for AMP, like additional traffic from platforms that link out to AMP websites like Google and Twitter. Learn more about creating your AMP page here.
We’re excited to be joining the initiative to improve the content ecosystem and we believe users should still have the same functionality on AMP that they have on other platforms. That is why we’re one of the first third-party plugins to be available as an AMP component.
In the coming months, we will be rolling out more AMP capabilities as well as more robust support documentation. In the meantime, if you have any questions or feedback about the plugin, please do not hesitate to reach out to our support team.
