What Is The Best Wordpress Social Media Plugin?

18 replies
Hi Guys,

Basically, I've spent the past 30 minutes trying out different plugins for my site and still can't decide which one to use.

I'd like one that is fairly simple and just has Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.

I'd like one to appear at the top of the post and one to appear at the bottom of the post a bit like the posts on Tropical MBA.

Can anyone help me out here?

Thanks in advance,

Kenneth

    I've been using sharethis.com

    It's working well for me so far. If there's a better one out there though, I'm happy to switch over

    Sharethis is good. You may also use social media and which you can customize.

  • You may want to check on sharebar. Its flexible you can add the share code before it is “officially” supported by the others. It also allows you to feature the share button of your choice.

    Social sharing toolbox is good. Any ideas for pushing content from your blog to social media accounts? I use one now but it says the name of the program in the post I dont like that.

    Hey Kenneth-
    We use Sharebar and "Twitter Facebook Social Share" plugins, but my devs are now suggesting Digg Digg as a better option.

    I did a bit of research and found that "AddThis share" plugin is the best and most user friendly plugin to use as of yet. Hope that helps.

    Is this some sort of URL dropping?, because I have visited this article, and it doesn't answer any questions, IMO.

    For the OP -- I like Sharebar, because it adjusts its placement based on screen size. i.e. if your screen resolution falls below a certain size (say 800px), the bar shifts from vertical to horizontal. Kind of like what squidoo pages do. However, I have found Digg Digg to perform better on my Wordpress blogs. Given a choice, I would go for Sharebar, because of its degree of customization, then look into a caching plugin to improve performance and load times. Hope this helps anyone trying to make a choice.

    I use digg digg one of the easy and light. Too many social signs won't make any difference I think. You just need few good ones.
