It asks you to log into your Twitter account.
It pastes in the name of the page eg B2B Marketing: [addings in the bit.ly link to your eg blog article] and adds via @addthis.
To Share on LinkedIn
It shows an image at the top and just shares the blog URL. You can also add a message, post just to a group or groups or send to individuals.
To Share on Facebook
First of all, you need to make sure that only the blog article you want to share is showing so you will need to click on the Title first eg Sharing Blog Articles.
Alternatively, you can click on the Recommend button below the article to recommend to your friends on Facebook.
It will ask you to log in to your account.
You can add in a status update and a thumbnail below (which you can remove). It did not actually work for us in Internet Explorer. It selected an earlier blog article? We tried it in Firefox and it worked fine has then randomly selected a blog article - the one two blogs down from the one I want to share!
