11 days ago, I called it a funky tool.
11 days later, the funky tool raised $15 million (in addition to its earlier $6 million).
Congratulations, ShareThis. Go in peace.
But hey, you rich folks at Draper Fischer and what not.....check this out: I just made the same tool in 25 minutes and a $0 investment. It works across many different content types, not just URLs. And I could've added 20 more platforms, but was a little bored and running out of real estate on my web page.
Oh and that's not half the story- our CTO is about to get medieval with this, with a pair of pliers and a blow-torch.
He's going to:
a. Let users add in their own choice of sharing platform into our widget. Beat that.
b. Build us a facebook app that incorporates this widget, so we won't really need to be in "talks" w/ pimple-face-berg.
So lemme aks u dis: can ye kick mah ass??!!
