  3. 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..

  4. I love the sexy bar sharing widget most , so attractive :)

  5. 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. :)

  6. 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.

  9. I’m currently using Po.st. 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.

  14. 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.

  21. 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 ?
    Manivasagam recently posted..iPhone 5 Confirmed Specifications & Awesome ImagesMy Profile

    • 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 addthis.com and get social sharing buttons and place their code after post. It will do all things you need! :D

  22. Hi,

    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?
    Mukesh Dutta recently posted..How To Edit & Save Webpage as Image in Firefox & ChromeMy Profile

    • 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!

  23. 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.

  45. 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?

    Thanks!

    • Ethan,

      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.

Speak Your Mind
