Welcome back to Blogete.The impact of social media is increasing day by day. If you are a blogger, social media is one of the best and easiest way to reach out your followers. Each and every WordPress blogger should use at least one social media plugin so that readers can quickly share your blog posts on their favorite social networking sites.In this post, we are sharing 5 best social media plugins for your WordPress blog. By installing social media plugin one can easily integrate social media buttons on their WordPress blogs. Social media buttons not only help you to drive more traffic from social media sites but also improve your search engine ranking. I also recommend you to add only those social sharing buttons which are useful like Facebook share, Twitter share, Whatsapp share and Pinterest “pin” buttons.
Now lets have a look at the list of social media plugins for 2021.
Jetpack is one of the most popular WordPress social media plugins. This plugin can add many features to your blog. After installing the Jetpack plugin, just activate the sharing module and add social media sharing buttons to your WordPress website.
To use Jetpack, you must have a WordPress.com account—which is free to create. The best thing is that sharing buttons can also be managed in WordPress.com via Tools → Marketing → Sharing Buttons.
It is our personal favorite social sharing plugin. The best thing about the plugin is that only adds 6 KB and 2 requests to the front end of your site.
Unlike other social sharing plugins, Novashare uses inline SVG icons instead of third-party icons which means there are no additional libraries. You can also configure the plugin as per your requirement within seconds.
Novashare social buttons are optimized for both desktop and mobile.
