  1. Nice list of plugins Nwosu. My favorite is Flare, its pretty and doesn’t play up on a mobile device unlike some of the other ones. But I wish there were more options for users. I’ve tried all of them listed here and thankfully found one that worked well for my blog, but the choices are not much, are they!

    • Flare is indeed an awesome social share plugin for WordPress and i am currently using it. It does not mess up mobile sites like some others and thats part of the reasons why i am using it. Thanks for your comment and have a nice weekend.

  2. Hi Nwosu,

    It’s a useful post with resources to different popular sharbars. I was more interested to learn what driving force pulled you away from GetSocial to Flare? What are the additional benefits in using Flare plugin?

  3. Nice collection of Social Share plugins, i am not using wordpress but i am using floating social share buttons for post, they are helping me lot to get shares !! :)

    Hoping more informative post from you !

  4. Perfect timing Nwosu as I was looking for a new social share plugin these days.

    I think Flare might be it; more options it seems than other plugins and a cleaner, more refined look.

    Thanks for sharing!


  5. Hi Nwosu

    Stay updated and Stay Rocking ;) :P


  6. Really nice post, thanks for sharing these sharing plugins. Flare WP plugin is my favorite plugin. Earlier Digg Digg was too famous but now Flare is becoming famous in blogging world.

  7. Hi Nwosu,

    Nice post about the best floating social share plugins for WordPress, and I think I’ve tried all of them one by one :)

    When I changed my theme, I had a few major ones already in the floating bar, though later shifted to social share and added a few codes in to get Buffer and FB Share in it too. I think these two are missing in Flare and a few other main ones you mentioned, which I prefer having as people use them a great deal on my blog.

    Nevertheless, I think these are all great plugins people can choose from and thanks for sharing them with us. Have a nice weekend :)

  8. Right now I’m using DiggDigg, even though I’m not a huge fan of it. Flare is pretty, but I spent faaaaaar too long trying to fix the css, as something in my layout was messing with it. I gave up because it wasn’t worth the time I was taking.

    I’m going to have a look at AddThis. Thanks!


  9. Well I wouldn’t be surprised that all of these share plugins are getting more popular with all wordpress plugins. It is really necessary to have a sharing plugin for all your latest post and make them available to social media platforms.

  10. The other day I was looking to change my share buttons and I was looking a couple I found on google. I actually found that I like one type of share buttons, but didn’t know the name of it. Now I do LOL… I like the Flare plugin and will now uninstall the other one and install flare… nice! Thanks!

  11. I currently use digg-digg but i like the look of flare. Some of the other options you listed force the user to giver permissions to the app to post to twitter. flare and digg-digg use the native twitter interface.

  12. i recently started using Flare after ditching DigDig. i must say it an awesome floating share tool.

  13. i use addthis,it have many style you can choose.The greatest strength of this bookmarking service is its capacity to maximize sharing possibilities. With the vertical bar, you’ll be able to maintain the share menu locked into 1 position.

  14. please tell me that social plugin really work good? someone tell me social plugin are worthless

    • Social plugins are very necessary because search engines consider social media activities as a ranking factor and for you to get your posts shared on the social networks, you need the social share plugins.

  25. Thanks! Anyone know how to get AddThis to look like theirs? Im struggling!

  26. Very informative article, thanks for sharing useful plugins with us all.

  27. Hi,
