20+ Best Social Media Plugins For WordPress

Since the advent of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest et cetera, social media sharing has come of age as far as online promotion goes.

Just the other day, Facebook’s user base hit the 1.15 billion mark! Twitter, too, is racking up the numbers and stacking up IPO cash. YouTube has changed how the world shares videos and as a result gained millions of users. This means that nearly everybody is on social media, your target customers included. You probably have one or two or three social networks open right now, don’t you?

Your target audience throngs social networking sites in pursuit of news, entertainment, updates, gossip, products and to keep in touch with friends and familia. Others play Farmville and buy virtual pets on some of these sites, but hey, every man to his own tastes.

Point is, social networking sites can give you a huge boost in web traffic. Just follow a general social media strategy, and use any (or two) of the following plugins and you’ll be alright.

Top 20+ Social Media Plugins For WordPress

Let us begin with premium plugins, shall we? All the plugins covered in the following section cost between $0 and $20, so you get to make huge savings this holiday season.

FACEBOOK LIKEBOX SLIDER FOR WORDPRESS

facebook-likebox-slider-social-media-plugins-for-wordpress-wpexplorer

This is probably the best social slider plugin for WordPress on the Internet.

It features an awesome tab design, which is appealing and attention grabbing. But aesthetics aside, Facebook Likebox Slider is easy to install and use. In fact, installation involves a three-step configuration process and that’s it, but the author (Arscode) provides 24-hour support in case you get stuck. Facebook Likebox Slider supports mobile devices, which means more users will share your content regardless of the device they use.

This 5-star rated plugin is a great tool and an easy way to get more shares, more fans, popularity and eventually more traffic. More traffic translates into more money sooner or later. Don’t be fooled by its title though, this plugin supports a number of social networking sites including Facebook (obviously), Twitter, Google+, Youtube, Vimeo, LinkedIn and Pinterest. For only $15, this plugin could be working hard for your business in no time.

TWITTER SLIDER & USER CARD FOR WORDPRESS

twitter-slider-wordpress-socil-media-plugin-wpexplorer

Since we just covered the Facebook Likebox Slider, I figured it would be nice to add a Twitter Slider Plugin as a compliment. Now, if you are looking to display your tweets in a fancy way, this is the plugin you want. Twitter Slider offers a lot of personalization options including the ability to set up avatars, display animations and implement transitions. The slider can align horizontally or vertically depending on your taste, and you can use the plugin to display tweets from a user, a hashtag or Twitter search.

socialbox-social-wordpress-widget

Authored by Jonas Doe Bertin, with nearly two thousand purchases and selling at just $6, the SocialBox WordPress widget is easy to use and helps you to install a sleek social media widget to your WordPress website.

This widget supports numerous social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and the other usual suspects. Furthermore, it lets you display the number of Facebook likes, Twitter followers, Youtube subscribers and so on. In addition, you can enter “placeholder” values that will be displayed in case the corresponding API fails or is not reachable. The plugin goes for $6 bucks only.

SOCIALPOP: A SOCIAL MEDIA PLUGIN FOR WORDPRESS

socialpop-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress-wpexplorer

With a variety of beautiful display options, the SocialPop plugin takes the social sharing game to the next level. What’s more? It supports up to twenty-seven of the best social media sites as well as email sharing.

Once you install and activate the plugin, you can set your social media icons to pop (up, down, left or right) every time you mouse over them. See how the SocialPop title relates? You can add social media sharing options to your posts, pages or wherever you like using the Manual Insert Settings Option, a process that is as easy as ABC. Additionally, you can add social sharing icons to your template files using shortcodes or PHP function calls, meaning you can place this plugin wherever you desire. That’s not the end of it though. You can keep track of when users share your content using the Bit.ly/J.mp support that comes with the plugin. The author, LuckyKind, sells SocialPop at a throwaway price of $5. It is worth every penny.

SHAREPLUS (+): THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WAY TO SHARE

shareplus-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress-wpexplorer

If we were only after aesthetics, the image above shows that Share+ is indeed a “…beautiful way to share your site…”. However, beauty does not equal functionality (or utility), so we have to delve into the technical details to determine whether the author, Daniel Paul, means business or he’s just talking a good one.

To begin with, Daniel built Share+ using jQuery, HTML5 and pure CSS3. This is great a direction to take because it means the plugin is future proof and easy to modify. Speaking of ease, all that is required on your part is uploading the plugin, activating it and three clicks in the direction of configuration and your work is done. Other than that, you can use Share+ on dynamic and static web pages without problems since it is client-sided (does not require a server to run).

The plugin comes with a visually appealing (or rather beautiful) admin panel and five thrilling themes that will change the social sharing experience for your users. Finally, the plugin supports several social networking sites and gives you the power to track social sharing activity using Google Analytics. Share+ will set you back $10 bucks.

WOOF: LOAD YOUR WORDPRESS SITE INSIDE YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE

woof-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress-wpxplorer

This is quite some social media plugin since it doesn’t create social sharing buttons but instead loads your entire WordPress website inside your Facebook page. I don’t know about you but, personally, I think that’s dope (really cool). As opposed to leaving Facebook to visit your site, your visitors can browse, comment and share your WordPress site right from inside Facebook. Speak of increased user engagement and what nots.

According to Giggi, the author, Woof (WordPress On Our Facebook) is “…more than a ‘script’ and it’s more than a ‘plugin’…” To me, it’s the result of smart web engineering. While Woof is a multi-faceted social integration plugin that might seem daunting, you can install it and be on your way to better social exposure with a single click! Just upload it, set up a Facebook App (really easy stuff) and click activate. Too bad you can only use this plugin with Facebook because it would be great to embed your entire website on a few more social networks. Regardless, I give Woof a 8.5/10 rating because it’s cool, costs only $18 and works as advertised.

Get : Load Your WordPress Blog Inside Your Facebook Page

SOCIAL SIDEBAR FOR WORDPRESS

social-sidebar-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress-wpexplorer

Right off the bat, I would like to say this plugin is very configurable! It allows you to add social links to your WordPress website easily and style them however you like using CSS3. When you are done configuring some of the options, you will feel like a developer yourself. Haha.

That aside, Social Sidebar is compatible with all modern browsers since it is built around HTML5. On top of that, the plugin supports automatic integration and comes with some great features including 100 icons, 4 themes, 2 sides meaning you can place it on the left or right sidebar, 2 styles but you can add more, and 4 label styles: square, rounded, fancy and curved. $10 bucks will get you the plugin and 24-hour hands-on support.

SOCIALFANS – WP RESPONSIVE SOCIAL COUNTER PLUGIN

social-fans-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress

Built on Bootstrap 3, this Retina ready social media plugin packs quite a punch and enables you to display the number of your social account fans/subscribers/followers. It ships with a lot of features including numerous social networks, animated transitions, translation ready files and the ability to create custom skins.

To top it all, the guys behind the plugin, Themeinity, provide quick response (less than 15 minutes) to all queries. If they are ever late, they endeavor to respond within 24 hours. It’s quite a clever thing to do: providing quick response for a “responsive” social media plugin. Haha. SocialFans Counter costs $10, and that comes with quick-response support of course.

TWEETABLE SHORTCODE V.12 – QUICK TWEET SENTENCES

tweetable-shortcode-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress-wpexplorer

The Tweetable Shortcode social media plugin for WordPress will help you UP your Twitter game. Twitter is a very noisy place (with all the tweets and stuff); and it’s so noisy you might forget its huge potential as a source of – wait for it- free traffic. Oh yeah, Twitter grows everyday and with it grows traffic and engagement. All you need is a way (or a plugin) to tap into this traffic. The Tweetable Shortcode plugin will help you convert any sentence into a tweet with the touch click of a button.

That’s right, just select the text in your post editor and click the Tweetable Shortcode button in the post editor toolbar. Job done. It’s like inducing people to tweet your content: random thoughts, quotes, words and ideas. We all know that tweets breed traffic, and traffic breeds dough. The plugin is easy to set up and there is plenty of space to add your username (you need those followers, don’t you?) and shorten the url of your shared posts (thanks to Bit.ly). Tweetable Shortcode’s regular license costs $10 and the extended license costs $50. Choose one that works for you!

Get Tweetable Shortcode V.12

After the jump, we will review free but equally effective social media plugins for WordPress.

SHARETHIS

sharethis-social-media-plugins-for-wordpress-wpexplorer

With over 1.5 million downloads and up to 120 social networking channels, ShareThis has become a powerful social media plugin in a market swarming with similar products. The plugin was lastly updated on 21st November, 2013 meaning it’s still fresh and thus safe for your WordPress installation. I just touched on WordPress security because some free plugins are often lined with malicious code, so be very vigilant. Moving on. ShareThis gives you the ability to use sharing bars (including hovering bars), counters and buttons of different sizes. Additionally, you can track social network interactions by creating a social analytics account. This will let you determine the social quality of your WordPress site via the Social Quality Index (SQI).

FLOATING SOCIAL MEDIA ICON

floating-social-media-icon-wpexplorer

With a little over 300k downloads at WordPress.org, the Floating Social Media Icon plugin is making waves of its own. Maybe it is the ease of use or the simple process of configuration or even the mere fact that you can set up your social media icons to float, but this social media plugin is among the best in the market. Its main features include over twenty icon styles, resizable icons, multiple widgets, shortcode support, auto or manual integration and less load, which is good for your page load speed.

The icons are quite fancy, and they fly from top left to bottom right and stick there for as long as the user stays on your page. Don’t worry about it, you can disable this floating behavior and still use the plugin to grow your following and traffic.

SOCIAL MEDIA WIDGET

simple-social-bookmarks

We’ve mentioned this social media plugin in previous posts, which also reminds me of this WordPress marketing post. If you haven’t read it, please do. Social Media Widget enables you to display your social media profiles as icons on the sidebar. The plugin supports numerous social networking sites as well as email sharing. It comes with a ton of icons in different sizes: 16×16, 24×24, 32×32, 64×64 and custom size. Moreover, you can animate the icons, which come in four packages, to create the visual effect you desire; the icons can zoom in (scale), bounce or fade in.

MICROBLOG POSTER

microblog-poster-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress

The Microblog Poster social media plugin for WordPress helps you to publish your content to various social networks automatically. The plugin supports multiple accounts per social networking site meaning you can cross post to several accounts on the same social network. On top of that, you can format the update message to create varying versions for your different social networking platforms. The plugin is easy to configure, use and supports shortcodes.

PO.ST

According to Po.st, the plugin is “…the first and only social sharing platform that offers publishers the ability to monetize social activity on their sites…”

Every time a user shares your content, a 300×250 ad appears within the sharing widget. If a user clicks on the ad, you can earn up to $25 depending on the ad’s CPM (cost per 1,000 impressions). Po.st comes with an analytics dashboard that tracks your site’s social activity as well as ad revenue.

SOCIAL MEDIA FEATHER

social-media-feather-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress-wpexplorer

The following are the words that describe Social Media Feather: simple, super lightweight, effective social sharing, nice and modern looking. And I totally agree. The Social Media Feather plugin gives you the power to easily and quickly add social following and sharing buttons to posts, custom post types and pages. The plugin focuses on unobtrusive impact and performance while remaining simple. In addition, social media feather supports Retina displays, which means it works with all modern devices.

SHARE BUTTONS BY ADDTOANY

share-buttons-by-addtoany-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress-wpexplorer

With over two million downloads, Share Buttons by AddToAny is without a doubt a very popular social media plugin. But is it as effective as it is popular? Let us look into some of its features.

  • The latest version of the plugin comes with larger sharing buttons for the most popular social networks

  • If you are a web developer, the plugin is quite extensible
  • If you are a WordPress beginner, the plugin is quite configurable

The verdict: this plugin is without a doubt as effective as it is popular. Moreover, it is among the best social media plugins in the market.

Download Social Buttons by AddToAny

TFG SOCIAL SHARE

TFG-social-share-for-wordpress-wpexplorer

(The red arrow shows TFG Social Share and blue arrow shows Jetpack sharing)

The only drawback is you can only display about six social networks, which might be a limiting factor to some. Other than that, the plugin is clean and creates elegant sharing units that you can place above your posts, below your posts, above and below your posts or to the left side of the posts.

The plugin is crafted on Javascript, which loads in the footer meaning your content loads first (before the plugin). This way, your page load speed is not affected negatively. TFG Social Share is easy to configure and you can use shortcode [tfg_social_share] to display the social sharing icons anywhere on your site. It’s a great sharing plugin, but you might need a second social media plugin that allows users to access the other social networks that TFG Social Share does not support. If you have Jetpack for WordPress, you should be able to overcome this problem easily.

Download TFG Social Share

The ball is now in your court…

  9. Hi Freddy, thnaks for the share. Nice Article. I have a question though, I have been using Po.st for sometimes and i love it. But apparently, its still active when people access my site via mobile and wptouch are on. This cause the buttons to cover a big portion of the text. You can see it here dedydahlan.com/blog/biasanya-nggak-begini by accessing it via mobile. Do you know hot to solve this? or do you know other social share plugin that can be disabled if wptouch is on? Thank you so much

      AJ Clarke
      Hi Dedy, You have to options, both will require some customization. 1. Quicker: Edit the plugin and use the function wp_is_mobile() so you can prevent the plugin from running on mobile. 2. Better: Add some CSS to your site to hide it. This can be done by either a media query or by adding a mobile class to your body tag (better - see the body_class filter for this). Then you can target that class and hide the social icons with CSS ;) By the way Dedy, have a look at the updated Bizz theme!

      Hi Prafull, I'm not sure of any really good pop-up plugin for social. In general though having the social on the page instead of popping-up can actually convert a lot better so I wouldn't recommend the popup. JetPack actually updated recently and I really like their updated social sharing module.

I'm looking for something simple that does not set files into the core files of Wordpress. What I'm looking for is one that will put simple sharing buttons on posts to the most popular social sites. I liked Jetpack's one but I was using so little of it's other features I turned it off. I had something called Email-it social plugin and it took down my site, had to have my server go in and fix it.

  44. Hi Freddy, first of all, congrats for your collection, but have you tried CardZ? Comparing with other plugins, with CardZ you have the possibility to add custom banners/ads in your stream, that will allow to measure traffic for your social posts (Analytics Module Inside) or moderate the content from anywhere. It is also Visual Composer Ready and works with any theme. If you have any ideas about how to improve this plugin or if you see other features to be developed/ added, drop us your input. We will do our best to make it happen. Best regards, Andrew

  45. Yes Kyla, is a new one. We`re trying to improve the plugin permanently, so please drop any ideas regarding to CardZ, therefore your opinion/ input will matter for us. On the other hand, is there a way to get in touch with you? ( you can send me an email so I can reply to you). Thanks a lot, Andrew

    First of all many thanks for the plugin. It works like a charm. The only bit that I’m struggling is to find out how I can make it display at the beginning of the post not at the end. I’m looking within the code and can’t find anything working. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for sharing, I’m a fan of Floating social media icon. That’s because I love the icon designs. It makes my site seem like it has custom icons, same theme color scheme. I have also used AddThis as it allows people to share my posts across different platforms.

  54. Hi, my favourite plugin is Getsitecontrol. You can add customizable share or follow social media buttons. There is a lot of types widgets (header, sidebar, scroll box) and also other widgets like email subscribe pop up, contact form... :-)
  55. I'm really impressed with the list but I couldn't find the exact floating share bar plugin you used for this site. Is it a custom one? I really like how your sharing buttons come together..

      Yes, ours is custom :-) But there are tons of other great options similar to ours!
