5 Best WordPress Share Buttons For Your Blog / Website
Sharing your blog posts with the friends and contacts in media social network can help to increase the number of organic visitors to your blog or website and keep friends up to date with your posts. To share a post you can copy the link and paste in your media social account like Facebook or Twitter.
Starting August 1, 2018, third-party tools can no longer share posts automatically to Facebook Profiles. This includes Publicize, the tool for WordPress.com and Jetpack-powered sites that connects your site to major social media platforms (like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook).
Will this affect your ability to share content on Facebook? It depends. If you’ve connected a Facebook Profile to your site, then yes: Publicize will no longer be able to share your posts to Facebook. On the other hand, nothing will change if you keep a Facebook Page connected to your site — all your content should still appear directly on Facebook via Publicize. (Not sure what the difference is between a Page and a Profile? Here’s Facebook’s explanation.)
But, there’s also an easy way to share it, using wordpress share buttons, either you or your blog visitor can share your post easily by using a plugin. There’s more than one plugins you can choose and some of them are even FREE to use!
Below, i share with you 5 best wordpress share buttons for your blog or website.
#1 – AddToAny
This plugins is FREE plugins and i’m using it in my page and some of my client’s. It offer’s almost all media social platform including most popular like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp and Reddit. You can display these icons before or after your content, as well as in both vertical and horizontal bars (or manually via shortcodes, widgets, or template tags). AddToAny also supports share counts.
Everything is also lightweight and asynchronous to ensure quick page load times.
Yes, it’s FREE too, but also offered in paid add-on. The other good thing about this plugins is you can customize the display to suit your theme. Instead of using standard media social color, you can change their appearance and make it look difference. It also support 100+ media social platform. You can add both before/after content and floating share bars. And you can also target your share buttons to specific post types or individual pieces of content.
Everything is responsive, and you can also enable/disable both vertical or horizontal floating buttons on mobile devices. Sassy Social Share supports share counts
This plugin are fast in loading and easy to setup, but very limited media social platform to choose. Comes with multiple choice of button style and you can choose to display it before or after post, but no sticky toolbar.
Shared Count also support share counts. From the review, it received a good 5 star and praised for their support.
#4 – Social Snap
So far, this plugin got well-designed interface, great-looking share buttons, and a lengthy feature list but limited option in FREE versions. And like Social Warfare, this plugin supports vertical Pinterest images – a great way to get more shares. So, if you’re looking for a Social Warfare alternative, this is the plugin for you. There’s even a built-in migration tool.
#5 – Social Warfare
Super popular plugin either in FREE or paid versions. Support some popular media social platform in FREE version and you can set it up on multiple placement like floating or before/after post.
Here’s why it was so popular ( i think) : The share count can be set to met minimal share before it can display on post. By that, if your post got 0 share, you always can hide it first and display it after 5 or more shares depend on your settings.
Well.. that’s all. WordPress share buttons are evergreen and there’s always new plugins come out. Always look for it!
