I have seen tons and tons of Social Bookmarking plugins for WordPress and non has impressed me as much as Social Pop. I stumbled across this plugin while looking for some kind of jQuery drop-down social bookmarking plugin that i could put on my site and wouldn’t really get in the way.
Social Pop is a plugin that looks and functions a bit like the ever so popular “Sexy Bookmarks Plugin”. They are similar in the fact that they automatically add social bookmarking icons/links at the bottom of your posts and they have a neat jQuery animation that make it look like the icons “pop-up” on hover. And they both have an admin panel where you can choose which social bookmarking links to show.
So why would you bother paying $5 for Social Pop as opposed to using a free plugin? I asked myself the same thing so I left a comment over at the official page and soon enough the author of Social Pop wrote a really nice article explaining to me why his plugin is superior…and sure enough I was convinced.
Social Pop has tons more options then other free social bookmarking plugins, the animation is really smooth and elegant, you can choose from different styles and borders, the admin panel is really easy to use and comes with some great options (holder style, title, position, animation style, background color…etc
