    Hello Ammar, just upgraded one of my websites to wordpress, need social buttons like on of Rahul Kuntala, can you help me on that.

  4. says

    Hi Ammar,
    I have started using Sharebar in 2 of my blogs after visiting this thread.
    You’re doing great job at the early age of yours. :)


  5. says

    I have recently been having trouble with Sexy Bookmarks & WP Socializer. I just need to find something that doesn’t mess up when you share!

  6. says

    Thanks for the great article. Was looking for a list of the best social sharing plugins for my blog and one that was up to date. Found yours and was delighted. Have installed Sharebar and it’s great.

  7. says


    I’m still not able to decide which one is the best. I tried some of them but was not satisfied. Currently I’m using social sharing option provided by Jetpack. I think Sexy Bookmarks would be better for Posts. What do you say?

    • Ammar Ali says

      I would recommend you to use “Digg Digg” or “Sharebar”.. They’re best. I’ve used both! :) Works great!

      You can also give try to “Twitter, Facebook Like,G+ one Social share” Plugin as well!

  8. says

    Nice Post :) Ammar .

    its disappointing that we need to Install two plugins to have both Floating social share as well as above/below post social sharing widgets…

    is there a plugin that do both in a single run ?

    • Ammar Ali says

      Yeah. Seems to be. Here is solution for this!

      Just install any of floating social sharing plugin. It will add floating social buttons to left side of your page. And then goto and get social sharing buttons and place their code after post. It will do all things you need! :D

  9. says

    yes WordPress has huge collection of plugins, so its difficult to find right one, its good article about best plugins, so bloggers can easily start their blogging carrier :)

  10. Rohith VR says

    This is yet another great list of plugins. I’m a big fan of Digg Digg! I took out the rest of the social networking plugins and stuck with just one to make it easier for everyone to share. I’m sure they work the same way. Great Post!

  11. says

    hello..This Is Really A Nice Article..

  12. says

    Hey bro,
    GetSocial is also a fantastic social plugin which i am using currently on my blog. You can have a look at it. thats awesome.
    BTW your plugins are also great. I am using Sexy Bookmarks too. :(

    • Ammar Ali says

      What you are doing here? Today is your birthday ;) Go and enjoy it.

      anyway, Get Social is also great. I am using Sharebar.

      BTW, why you are sad? :|

  13. says

    I currently customized the social buttons on my site, but from those you have listed, by far sharethis is the best solution for a single reason: you can track with Google Analytics. In this way you can see which articles are being shared the most and invest more on articles like those.

  14. says

    I dont use plugins as I blog on blogger but i used most of these social sharing buttons for my blog.
    Later i removed almost all of them as they take much load time :)

  15. luaggz says

    I’m currently using It’s a single JS code, so it’s lightweight and doesn’t affect my load time on my site. They have every sharing option available, just like the others, but the kicker is that they help me make money by showing an ad after someone shares my content. I don’t believe that any other sharing tool does that.

    Check out my site:

  16. says

    I have used Digg Digg, ShareBar and Sexy Bookmarks but did not satisfied with their performance. Each one loads their javascript increasing load time. I prefer to use own codes.

  17. says

    Hey Bro,
    I am really happy to share what i am using?
    Firstly I used the AddThis plugin on my blog.
    But presently i’m using ShareBar and Sexy Bookmarks.
    These 2 plugins are working fantastically on my blog.
    Although some plugins takes a lot of time to load but these 2 are not so. They both loads in normal time and works best for my blog. :)

  18. Hamza says

    Share This is one of the worst sharing plugin. I have ever used in my career. It just increase your website load timings, also delays the browser side rendering of your website pages. My advice is to stay away from such a buggy product. There are already number of Sharing Plugins..

  19. says

    Even the one I’m using on my blog is amazing. Pease check it out. If I’m not wrong, it’s known as SOCIAL BAR (or something like that, I’m not really sure :D

  20. says

    Hello Ammar,
    I love all of them and I know all of them works perfectly for every WordPress blog I want to know that which one of them are you using?
    Because I wanna use the one which you are using

      • says

        I’ve started using the Twitter, Facebook, Like G+ share plugin after reading this post because I’ve found that awesome and working perfectly on my blog.

        • Ammar Ali says

          I am using Sharebar along with this I also added social sharing buttons using custom codes. You can see them below related posts!
