WordPress plugin – Shareaholic

Social engagement is a crucial and vital aspect for any website and should be considered by every webmaster. Among my favorite WordPress plugins is Shareaholic which makes the integration of social sharing into a WordPress blog easy.

Once the plugin is installed, you are able to select what networks you want to participate in and how the sharing functions should be displayed:

Socially engage your visitors with Shareaholic

All the popular networks are supported (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Digg, LinkedIn etc) and in addition to the sharing button bar, you are able to include the most popular networks at the beginning of the post.

In my case I chose to display Google+, Twitter and Facebook at the beginning of each post and the sharing of my content below the article. Shareaholic is still missing native “share with Google+” functionality, but hopefully this will come in a future update.
