Real-Time Trending Content
This widget allows you to showcase the top trending content from your website or across the web or a user’s social network. You can customize the content in many ways including filtering by topic or category or show what a user’s friends are reading.
Using our secret sauce and algorithms, we calculate the trending stories on your site based on a variety of factors including sharing.
You can customize the content in the following ways -
- 1. By Domain - You can choose your website or any partner website which uses the ShareThis tools.
- 2. By Topic - Type in any trending topic and see the trending content about the topic show up.
- 3. By Category - If you want to showcase content about a particular vertical that your site belongs to, this option is for you.
- 4. All of the above. If the above options don’t match your needs then you probably want to try combining the above options to showcase very specific content.
We provide a variety of widget features that allow you to choose the design which suits your website requirements and tastes.
This set of widgets come with different social features that keeps the user engaged and allows them to interact the content. Users can comment and like within the widget itself, thus engaging with the content without leaving your site.
The ‘Friends’ tab shows the content being shared in a user’s social networks filtered by the content customizations. Research shows that users are more likely to click on content that is shared by their friends.
The Big Picture
Most people are attracted more by the images than the written word. These widgets take advantage of that fact by using large images to attract the user. Choose a carousel or a list, or display the headline or the synopsis with the images. Your users will notice this.
Like us, if you prefer to have minimal features on your widget, then these widgets are for you. You can show the headlines and/or synopses in a list or a carousel, with the minimal design easily adapting to any website.
