Surprising add-in

  • Doesn't Need an Answer
How did ShareThis get on to my computer? Your nuisance shows up only on one web site and, apparently, only on one page on that website (Comunn Eachdsraidh Uig). The biggest problem is that your on-hover doesn't turn off when I close the window. I'd rather not see "sharethis" at all, but as long as I can close it and have it stay closed, it's (barely) tolerable.

It may be hard for you to comprehend, but I an mot on any social networking sites at all and have no intention of joining any. Therefore I have no possible need for sharethis.

Hi,

Because the ShareThis widget is a feature added by the publisher there is no way for it to be disabled from your end.

The publisher is the person who owns and updates the website where you are coming across the widget.

For me - ShareThis is invaluable. I frequently share a page on the web with friends and family. ST saves copying the web address then opening email then starting a new email, then writing a message and pasting the web address into the message and then sending the email, then returning to the web page. All of this takes 2-3 minutes.

With ST simply click the icon in the tool bar then select the email button, write the same text I would have included in the process described above then select "Send". Time elapsed - half a minute.

Life is better with ST

PS It is curious that "I don't use Social Networking" is used by some as a point of pride? All I can say is "Ignorance is bliss". For some types of communications, social networking is to email as email is to snail mail and the pony express. Time to get with it folks.

I don't use facebook, et al, but would like an easy way to share things I've found with family & friends. I could do it as long as the sites I found opened in a new window, but I can't do it now. How do you work it?
