ʻO 50% kēia o kahi noi nui

sharethis.pngi ka wa Kaʻanaʻana a hemo, ua hauʻoli wau i ka hemo ʻana i ka papa inoa o nā kiʻi viral i loaʻa iaʻu ma ka pūnaewele a pani iā ​​ia me hoʻokahi pihi maʻalahi. ʻO ka pilikia ʻo ka pihi he pōʻino maikaʻi ʻole ma kaʻu blog. Ma nā pou i loaʻa i nā haneli o nā referrals a me nā kaukani mau ʻōlelo ma nā pūnaewele kaiapili, hoʻohana ʻia ʻo ShareThis ma lalo o nā manawa he ʻumi!

The problem with ShareThis is that it's ʻaʻole maʻalahi no ka mea heluhelu.

Let's say, for example, the reader wants to share a story they found on Twitter.

  1. Hoʻopili lākou i ka loulou ShareThis.
  2. Pono lākou e kaomi ma Twitter.
  3. Pono lākou e hoʻolako i kahi ʻeʻe.
  4. Pono lākou e hāʻawi i kahi ʻōlelo huna
  5. Pono lākou e kaomi lāʻau kū.

Nui loa nā ʻanuʻu. Ma mua loa o nā ʻanuʻu.

I state that ShareThis is 50% because they pay a lot of attention to the publisher experience and not enough attention to the users' experience. ShareThis has the potential of being a great application if they do one simple thing – hana maʻalahi i kaʻana like.

Kinohou was a great feature addition – users can now view the items they've shared. It's not enough, though.

Ma ke ʻano he mea hoʻohana, hiki iaʻu ke ʻeʻe i ShareThis pākahi a hoʻonohonoho i kaʻu mau pūnaewele pūnaewele pākahi. Ke kipa aku wau i kahi pūnaewele ʻē aʻe ... pono wau e ʻeʻe i loko o ShareThis i hiki ai iaʻu ke kaomi maʻalahi i kahi pihi e hoʻoili iā Twitter, Facebook, a i ʻole kahi pūnaewele ʻē aʻe (e like me ʻO Tweetmeme does for Twitter). No logging on… no filling in details (unless they're optional)… just share!

I look forward to seeing how ShareThis evolves in 2010. I'm keeping it here on the blog because it does provide some value. The potential is much, much more though.

Pehea kou manaʻo?

Ke hoʻohana nei kēia pūnaewele i ka Akismet e ho'ēmi i ka spam. E aʻo pehea e hanaʻia ai kāuʻikeʻikepili.
