i 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.
- Hoʻopili lākou i ka loulou ShareThis.
- Pono lākou e kaomi ma Twitter.
- Pono lākou e hoʻolako i kahi ʻeʻe.
- Pono lākou e hāʻawi i kahi ʻōlelo huna
- 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.
