Social Media Info

Last Update: April 23, 2015

Just to help me remember and to help both New Members and any Member not familiar with some of the Social Media Tools

When Talking Facebook etc. Share Buttons, One plugin that has worked fine for me is "Share Buttons by AddToAny", but you have to go to the Plugin Settings to make sure Icon is where you want it.

Another Social Media Plugin that has worked fine for me is "Social Media Feather - lightweight social media sharing and follow buttons"

It allows for Sharing, Following, and I believe Liking on all Social Media

After you Install and activate it, you must go to Plugins and the click Settings on Social Media Feather. Scroll down and check "Display Sharing Buttons". Then right below that, choose "Share Buttons Position". I choose "After And Before Post" so that the Icon is at the top and bottom of my Post or Page.

Just below that, On "Share Post Types" You can check Post so that the Share Icon will show on your Posts, or you can check Pages. Then the Icon will show on all of your Pages, but not on Posts. I hold the Ctrl button on my keyboard and click both Page and Post so that the Icon will show on both Pages and Posts. There are many other options you can check if you choose such as the Follow Buttons and many more options, but those are the only ones that I adjust.

Social Media Feather has a little more than "Share Buttons by AddToAny". So take your pick or use both. At this moment, I like both but decided having both was overcrowding. I kept Social media Feather since it seems like a little more ability than Share Buttons by AddToAny.

You can also Share your Website on Facebook in another way

You can add a Fan page or whatever you want to call adding a Page to your Facebook account. Log into your Facebook, Scroll down the Left column till you get to "Pages", Click "Create Page". You will see boxes with choices for what kind of page you want. I chose "Brand or Product" then made a choice in the Categories. I chose "Website", and I filled out the info from there. I added the page to my Favorites on Facebook. So far, it has worked for me.

Hope this helps some!

Wishing Success for all!

Michael

Thanks! I was asking about all of this yesterday and was told to use the Super Socializer plugin. So that is the one I ended up getting. Do you have any experience with that one? It seems fine so far.

TanjaRita, I am afraid I do not. I am sure there are many good Social Media Plugins. Like anything else. Some good some bad. I tried some that did not work right and I deleted them. These 2 have worked fine for me so I thought I would Share. Hope the best for you!
