    Useful article – thank you:-)

    I have a couple of questions for you. I don’t like my current share plugin (Get Social) and want to change it. But if I do, will I lose all the shares the old one had? Are there some which will import the old shares I had?

    Also, do you know why sometimes it sits on top of the content when viewed on IPads and mobiles, and how to stop that happening?


    • Ammar Ali says


      As far as I know, even if you change plugin the social counts remain same. Though, I’m not sure about it..

      And, this happens because your current setting might be set to make social bar float on top.. You can change through setting.

  7. Vinay says

    Among these Share bar is the best. But i would also suggest “getsocial” to the list.
    GetSocial is also a valuable plugin similar to Share Bar…. What say???

  8. Mken says

    Hello Ammar, I just wanted to drop a little feedback about the Sociable plugin. It ruined my website’s CSS. So everybody gotta be careful before using that. Other plugins are good. Thanks for the list! :)
