20+ Best Social Media Plugins For WordPress

December 10, 2013
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. It’s now a key part of any good marketing and SEO strategy, which is why you should consider using one of the best social media plugins for WordPress on your blog or website.

At the end of last year Facebook had nearly 2.9 billion active users! 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 you’ll be alright.

Let us begin with the best social media plugins for WordPress, shall we? All the plugins covered in this post are great options for your website – we simply recommend choosing one (or maybe two if they are network specific).

1. NovaShare

Novashare WordPress Plugin

Add social sharing to your WordPress site in a flash, with Novashare. This plugin is quick to setup, easy to use, multisite compatible, offers great social options and is GDPR friendly. Everything you need when looking for the best social share plugin!

Once you install Novashare, just head to the plugin options panel to get started. For share buttons on posts and pages you can choose from 17 networks, inline or floating share buttons. Customize icon colors, size, shape and alignment to fit your branding. And for major networks you can even enable share counters, so share icons will display the number of likes, tweets, pins, shares, etc. Plus Novashare includes quick  and “Pin” on Pinterest options. With these enabled, readers can simply highlight a chunk of text on your site to “Click to Tweet” a quote or click the “Pin” button when hovering on an image to pin to a Pinterest board. And there’s also two social profile link widgets with 52 networks to choose from that you can add to your sidebar or footer.

Worried about performance? Don’t! Novashare was coded by pros and was built to only load scripts when needed. Plus the plugin uses scalable SVG icons and offers built in three refresh rate options for share counters. This way your icons and counts load fast. And Novashare even includes built-in options to automatically create and add Google Analytics UTM parameters or enable Bitly short-links.

2. FS Poster

FS Poster

Automate your social media with FS Poster. This full featured social auto-poster and scheduler makes promoting your content easy. Just use the plugin’s built-in settings to add your social accounts (13 major networks are supported, including Twitter, Facebook and more), setup auto-sharing for new posts and design a publish schedule. Your social media will basically run itself! Or use FS Poster’s manual sharing panel to create custom posts on the fly.

No matter how you setup your sharing with FS Poster, you can use the insights section to view engagement on your posts and compare between networks (a great way to see which converts best for you and adjust your marketing strategy accordingly). Other great plugin features include support for TinyURL or Bitly, automated hashtags for taxonomies, bulk scheduling, calendar view, link tracking and even multisite support.

3. Social Candy Widget (Free)

Currently there are 25 to choose from including popular options like Facebook, Twitter, YouTUbe, Xing, Tumblr, Reddit, LinkedIN and more. And you can even drag & drop to reorder your profiles to display in the order you want.

  4. hoaquynh1290

    Hi Freddy!
    It is very amazing post for me because I have never found any post reviewing all necessary plugins for WordPress which includes price information.

  6. Dwight Cocran

    Thanks Freddy for combining all these social media plugins into one great article. I am constantly on the lookout for the best one and keep trying new ones out. I have yet to find one to completely satisfy me though. Will be trying a few on your list as well.

  9. Dedy

    Hi Freddy, thnaks for the share. Nice Article.

    I have a question though, I have been using 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 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!

  10. haroon

    Hello i have a question please email me about this
    what’s the name of that plugin you are using to convert external links into internal links?

  11. Jice

    Hi Freddy, thanks for the list.

    I would like to suggest another one, for those who are using the authorship markup. I recently developed the following “most shared plugin” that imports the articles you have authored, and display the best ones, even if they have been published outside your blog.

    • AJ Clarke

      Pretty cool idea for a plugin Jice, thanks for sharing!

  12. Ethan Micheal

    First of all thanks for this awesome list. My favorite social media plugin is SocialPop a social media plugin for
    WordPress because it has a variety of beautiful display options and this plugin takes the social sharing game to the next level.

  13. Elijah Lovkoff

    I think one of the best compiled list. I’ve been browsing for social plugins list and this one is the best so far. Really useful and what is most important – tasty and with lots ideas. I don’t believe I just said this. I usually write only negative reviews 🙂

    • AJ Clarke

      That’s great to hear! “I usually write only negative reviews”…Maybe that’s because you’ve never read our posts before 😉

  14. George

    Great list buddy you have listed all the available social plugins for wordpress

  17. Phertest

    Awesome… thanks for looking into these plugins. The WordPress slider would look awesome on my site 🙂

  18. Mitali Chowdhury

    Great collection of social sharing options.

  19. publishize

    if you guys haven’t seen the new Riviton GoViral Facebook LIKE & SHARE plugin, you should check it out. Its shooting a lot of my current blog content form my site into the viral atmosphere on. Its by far more effective for now then all of these FB plugins put together. You can check my Alexa also 😉 Its called the “Riviton GoViral Facebook Like & Share Popup” its working miracles for me, You’ll thank me later.

    • AJ Clarke

      It looks interesting, but I wasn’t able to find any live demo. It really needs a live demo…maybe I’m just blind?

  20. Daily News Company

    Fantastic Post!

  21. publishize

    There is also a super handy popup plugin for WordPress that can seriously help some of your post to go viral.. it is called “Go Viral” I think is what it was called “Go Viral Popup Plugin” I think it is by Riviton or something like that, but I have seen this on ViralDoza,, and many others. If you use WordPress and want your stuff to go viral, that plugin will work wonders…

  22. Harshil Barot

    Very Nice Post 🙂 Thanks for Share 🙂

    • Freddy

      Thanks Harshil for passing by!

  23. Prafull

    I looking for a plugin that can show Twitter , facebook , Google Plus Follow Button as popup . I tried Social Popup Plugin to enable this to my blog but this is not working for me . I want a plugin that show all social site at once . Let me know any best plugin for me

    • AJ Clarke

      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.

  24. Nur Hasan

    Great to see beautiful share button plugin for wordpress.

    custom styled sharing buttons become popular these days.

    recently i have published new plugin for wordpress “Social Share Button” which support 7 themes for buttons including default style

Hope that helps Lawrence. Again, thank you for passing by 🙂

  35. Diane

    Very well done article. I’ve recently had some bad luck with plugin’s lately as I’m still learning. 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.

  36. Deepak Sudera

    Nice social plugins Collection.. A very Useful.. thanx to share with us…god bless you..

In the English version I put a Facebook link to my English Facebook page and the other way around on my Portuguese page. Have all the same for Twitter, Google + and so on. Just a great Plugin!!

  44. Andrew

    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,

    • Kyla

      I’ve not see it before – but it looks like a very new plugin so that would be why 🙂 Looks like another great social option though, especially since it has tracking. Thanks!

  45. Andrew

    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,

    • Kyla

      You can always leave a comment here 😉

  46. Bilqees Kenchi

    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!

  47. Nick Churick

    With a lot about Social Media plugins, you should definitely check out the tweetable quotes you can create with TweetDis plugin.

    I promise, it will blow your mind away compared to Tweetable Shortcode plugin

    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.

    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. Freddie

    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..

    Easy Social Share plugin has created 100’s of 404 errors to Pinterest. It works from Pinterest to my blog but not from my blog to Pinterest. I have tried to get help from them to fix these to no avail DO NOT BUY THIS PLUGIN is very destructive to your site.

    • AJ Clarke

      Weird, this plugin has over 24,000 sales, I would imagine if there was a huge issue like this that either other people would be complaining in the reviews or the developers would fix it up. I would recommend leaving another comment on their product comments section for help and if they aren’t able to help leave a rating over there on CodeCanyon for them and/or request a refund.

  70. Ruperth Simth

    Can we get Monarch plugin for free!! or is it a paid plugin.. please let me know. because it looks so cool..

    • AJ Clarke

      Unfortunately Monarch is not free, it’s included with your Elegant Themes membership. Although Elegant Themes is GPL I am sure you can find a copy of the plugin somewhere I would never recommend downloading a plugin from anywhere else except the original source. If you want a similar free social sharing script you could check out “AddThis”.
