I am new to Analytics and appreciate any help.  I am in the User Explorer area and looking at a visitor to my website.  I see an event labeled "Event facebook on addthis" and one labeled "Event twitter on addthis".

 

What does this mean?

Hi Eileen,

 

You are using addthis social sharing plugin on your site. Event "facebook on addthis" and event "twitter on addthis" means the user has shared the content on facebook and twitter via addthis. That means you have set up event tracking on addthis button. 

 

if you understood hit like to let me know

kind regards

Thanks so much for your time and assistance Norman!  So to confirm my understanding of your answer:  We I see in the User Explorer, then User Report an Event "facebook on addthis" it means the person who visited my website shared the webpage that they were visiting on a facebook page.  Is that correct?
