The ClubIt! Button: Faster and Improved


(Cross-posted from my blog at The E Club+)

At The E Club Family, sharing is one of our top priorities to improve. That's why we created the ClubIt! Button over the summer. The ClubIt! Button, when clicked on, went to the Feed at The E Club Social, where members could write a message about the site that they just came from.
Eventually, we tried AddThis, with the ClubIt! technologies incorporated, but the sharing menu didn't really work, and there weren't enough customizations that would fit ClubIt's needs. Besides, it was a little slow in loading.

So, a couple days ago, we switched the button's platform again to AddToAny's JavaScript API platform. This allowed for every service that AddThis had, plus some coding for sharing integration on The E Club Social and The E Club Social Beta. Plus, we made it asynchronous, which means that the button loads around the same time that the page it's on loads. Take that, Google +1 Button! If you want to learn more about ClubIt!, click here.

Thanks to AddToAny, the ClubIt! Button has been almost perfected. Now, you can even share pages using The E Club Social and The E Club Social Beta! You can do all of this instantly.

Here's what the original ClubIt! Button style looked like, along with a working model of one of the latest designs:
