AddThis is a third-party social media tool that can be embedded into your product pages. This is useful for your shoppers that will have social media accounts - these won't be links to your own social media 'pages', instead, the social media buttons will appear on your product pages for your shoppers to click and post a link on their OWN social media pages that will send traffic back to your store.
The social media buttons appear above the price and below the add to cart button. When you click each button, it will open a pop up window where you can add a note, and then post to each social media site.
