Arqam is an excellent retina responsive social counter WordPress plugin to add social links to any WordPress website.

This plugin is quick and easy to use – just install and get cracking! Once installed and activated, Arqam is added to your dashboard menu. From here you can add all of your social media profiles, as well as customize the counters to say “Followers”, “Little Monsters”, “Fans” or something else that you choose.

From here you can also set a cache time. This means the plugin will only update you counters according the timing schedule you choose. By spacing out your caching the plugin will call APIs less often which might speed up your website. And in the case that an API is down, Arqam stores previous values so you’ll never be left with a blank counter.

One of the best features is the drag and drop functionality. To reorder your social counters simply drag and drop the blocks within the sort section of Arqam. This way you can put your most important social media links first. To learn more about the plugin, checkout the features list below.
