Top 11 (Free) Social Sharing WordPress Plugins You Need Here

In modern web design, Social sharing buttons for a website is very compulsory because it increases your everything Ranking, Traffic, Quality and more. Many peoples’ code web sites with all custom codes and features and when those folks add share buttons in our site, they need to learn about social media developer pages, but with WordPress you didn’t need to learn about social buttons codes and add beautiful buttons already customized ready for your WordPress site and install in seconds. You can see in the official WordPress plugins download directory, there are lots of social plugins available, but the question is which is best and optimized because many people wants social buttons which looks flat,responsive and light weighted because heavy scripts buttons will drop your page load time.

I like those sharing buttons which aren’t containing any JavaScript, but you don’t do this because best and recommend social button is default small buttons contain JavaScript only. You can also add Social buttons without any plugin like If you want to add a Facebook button without plugin in WordPress then you can do it custom. Actually, every Social media websites always make a separate developer directory for web developers who can easily use those social integration to other site and also made some plugins, HTML beautiful buttons or customize social buttons for users.
