If you are an average WordPress user, then this title – 10 fresh social media WordPress plugins – sounds pretty common or even boring. You may accuse the bloggers (including me) that are uninspired or uninterested in offering top-quality content. Few months ago, when Daniel2Design hasn’t launched I thought in this manner. Right now, I have another perspective!
Let’s get deeper into the matter! Yeah, the blogosphere is full of product reviews or showcases of social media WordPress plugins but many of these posts are from 2015, but also from 2009 or 2011. Therefore, would you be interested in a plugin from 2011? If it’s updated constantly, yeah, you should take it into consideration, but these situations aren’t quite frequent.
Each blogger has his/her unique perspective and anyone interested in a specific type of plugin is willing to hear more opinions in order to make a final decision. Definitely, you will agree with my opinion once you should install a plugin or chose a theme and you need solid pieces of advice.
The developers are constantly improving and launching new and new more performant plugins. As a result, a plugin that was highly appreciated in 2013 might be totally old-fashioned nowadays. In conclusion, even though the title „fresh social media WordPress plugins” isn’t so fresh, these posts are very useful for many people. I tried to offer you 10 alternative solutions to spread your posts via social networks. Some of them are free while others are premium, some are well-known and others are recently launched. I hope that you will appreciate this mixture and if you want to stay updated to my latest posts please engage with me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter.

In spite of the common mentality that everything that is free has some limitations, this plugin is really awesome. You may add the icons next/before/after the posts and using this plugin is very intuitive. It has 4,9 out of 5 stars and more than 8,000 downloads….I guess that this aspect will convince you to pay attention to this plugin.

Social Sharing Buttons

Social Sharing Buttons is one of the most eye-catching social media WordPress plugins. It comes in two versions: free and premium. Of course, the premium one has more features, but also the free one is a good solution. Personally, I think that the mobile share bar, Google Analytics Integration and, Social Sharing Analytics are the most important features that make the difference between the free and premium versions.
