CSS3 Thread Out Social Sharing Widget for Blogger

When it comes to attracting attention to yourself on the internet, nothing does a better job than share buttons. ;)

Whether its twitter or google plus, social media probably has a huge impact on your traffic. I set out to create an attention grabbing way to display buttons, and came up with this: a circle that expands revealing a bunch of Social Sharing Widget on hover.

This widget is created using Pure CSS3 and ShareThis social sharing plugin. This widget have 4 buttons: Facebook Like button, Google +1 button, Tweet button and main ShareThis button for more social sharing links.
