Here is a post about 10 best Social Sharing Plugins for WordPress. Check inside for a detailed review of all the 10 plugins.
\r\n\r\n\r\nIn a comparison of best CMS available over the web, I had made it very much clear that the WordPress clearly wins the first slot when it comes to a secure, fast and reliable CMS. WordPress is not something very new and unheard for the webmasters and bloggers, since last few years, there has been a great battle between WordPress and Blogger, later Joomla also joined the competition.\r\n\r\nThere are many things which make WordPress the best CMS (Content Management System) available today. Some of those points I am sharing below\r\n
- WordPress is an open source platform, which allows you to customize it in the way you want without the need of a legal permission from the developers of WordPress.
- WordPress is very much simple as compared to the other Content management Systems. Once you are logged into it, you can yourself learn everything that you need to without the need of any experienced person.
- The support forum at support.wordpress.org is a very popular forum, where you can go and ask if you have any query or doubt regarding the functionality of WordPress. You can also ask if you have any technical difficulty you are facing and the other members as well as the developers will make sure that you get the solution to your problem as soon as possible.
- The thing which makes it the best among all is the WordPress database for Plugins. Those plugins allow you to customize your blog in the way you want.
\r\nI and many other bloggers have written over a million times that WordPress is at this slot today because of the plugin base they have. There are millions of plugins for every single thing that one can expect on a blog. These plugins are extremely easy to install and setup. Within a few clicks you can have a plugin running on your blog with the latest customizations to give a unique look or feature to your blog. In a recent post, I had written about 10 Must Have Plugins for a WordPress Blog. This post is also pretty much same, but being a bit specific, this post will contain the top 10 best Sharing plugins that you might want to install on your blog in order to increase the sharing by your users and get a bit more popularity. So here I start,\r\n
\r\n\r\n\r\nThis is one of the most innovative WordPress plugins for sharing. It has many new features which are dynamic and you can customize them very easily. It mainly shows a floating bar on the left of your content which contains the buttons you choose. It makes it easy for people to share your site content from anywhere on the page. You can link your social profiles and choose which all sharing buttons to display. As I told, there will be a vertical bar floating on the left of your content, but if someone reduces the width of the browser, the vertical bar will automatically change to a horizontal bar and that will be displayed under your post title.\r\n
2. Digg Digg
\r\n\r\n\r\nThis is one of the most popular sharing plugin available for WordPress. One of the main reason behind the popularity of this plugin is the compatibility with every version of WordPress and every single theme available for WordPress. Once you install this plugin, you will get an options page and you can choose to show this as a floating bar or you can even show the sharing button at the top or at the bottom of your posts. Digg Digg has been developed by Buffer. Recently buffer also launched their own social bookmarking website and integrated the feature in this plugin. This is very easy to install and use.\r\n
3. Get Social
\r\n\r\n\r\nGet Social is also a kind of plugin like the two I mentioned above. This plugin gives you an option to put a floating sharebar which keeps following your visitor when they scroll up or down on a page. This plugin does not have the functionality to allow you to put a horizontal bar at the top or bottom like the two plugins I mentioned above. But the main thing, why this plugin is in this list is, this plugin gives you a very easy option to create your own social sharing buttons by putting just a simple code you get on the website of the respective social sharing service. You can even customize the icons of the buttons already present in this plugin.\r\n

\r\n\r\n\r\nSocialize is pretty simple yet powerful at the top but very creative and innovative at the bottom of your post or page. By default, it gives a suggestion to yours about leaving a comment or subscribing to your news feed. This plugin can give a real boost to your subscribers.

You can put normal social sharing buttons at the top and the traditional, creative socialize bar at the bottom for the best results.\r\n
6. Twitter, Facebook Like,G+
\r\n\r\n\r\nThis is a very simple and sleek bar which has buttons like Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus etc. You can customize this bar completely with the background color, order of the buttons etc. This bar can be placed at the top or even at the bottom of your post or page.\r\n
