Plugins can be said to be the heart of a WordPress blog and there are different plugins for different functions. In this article, read about the top 5 WordPress social plugins using which you can share your articles on social networks.


You must have often wondered - How to facilitate the sharing of my blog's articles on social networks? What kind of WordPress plugin to choose? or What are the best social WordPress plugins? Well, to discover the WordPress plugins to share your articles, follow this guide.

1. AddThis

This is the first plugin in the list. It is simple to use and easy to configure. It gives you the opportunity to choose various types of displays for your sharing services and is customizable. It also allows you to display sharing the top and / or bottom of the article and gives control to the user so that he himself can choose the services that he prefers to share his articles, and these preferences remain recorded. Statistics are also available to keep your shares.

2. AddToAny

This is the second plugin. It is very similar to the first but it offers fewer options. However, it offers an impressive number of services that you can share. As in the previous plugin, you can display the buttons at the top and / or bottom of the articles and pages and also select a particular location (e.g. sidebar) by inserting a code in your files. An FAQ is available to really understand what you want with this plugin.

3. SexyBookmarks

This is another long used plugin for its aesthetics. It has many small blocks representing sharing sites that come when you pass the mouse over it. This plugin allows you, like others, to view social networking pages, categories, articles, top and / or bottom and choose (or even customize it if you replace) the introductory picture. You can view up to 86 networks and sharing sites and make extensive changes, the blog of the extension is available.

4. ShareThis

This is the fourth plugin presented here. It has the advantage of allowing a more rapid and fluid shares on the site. Indeed, passing the mouse over the email icon or ShareThis icon, a small window opens which allows to share directly. More than 40 services are supported by this plugin and it also gives the opportunity to be integrated directly into the code where you want. Something still rare, the plugin displays the Google +1 button and you do not have to add more code.

5. Sharebar

The fifth and final plugin and more "gadget" of all is the "Sharebar". Indeed this time sharing your buttons will not be displayed at the top or bottom of your articles but on the next line or paragraph! And yes and on top of that, when you go scroll down the page and therefore, your buttons will go down with it. Nice, is it not?

Indeed, it is always handy to keep your hand on social networks and encourage your readers to share your articles. However this plugin can quickly become cumbersome compared to other "call to action" plugins (subscription to a newsletter, for example) so it should be used with caution.


So there are the top 5 WordPress social plugins which are efficient and quick to put in place that will allow you to share your articles.
