Share Count API
ShareThis captures share related activity for URL's across it's vast network of over 2.4 million sites through the ShareThis button. This data primarily includes user shares, and visits from their friends clicking on shared links within social networks. The API allows a client application to access this data for a specified URL. Examples of usage include - determining popularity of a URL based on it's social sharing metrics, displaying counters of share activity, and data processing/mining applications that need this type of data for input.
Web sites can use this method to access count data during page load within a browser. This approach allows a site to customize the look & feel of the raw data instead of using ShareThis counters.
Note: This method does not support certain buttons - Facebook Like and Google+ due to their implementation restrictions.
