Best Social Media Sharing Plugins
One of the best ways to increase web traffic to your site is to integrate your social media sites with your WordPress site. In this next series of articles we’ll let you know which social media plugins are the best to add to your site. This will include the best social media sharing plugins, the best social media following plugins, the best social media comments plugins, the best social media post broadcasting plugins, the best social media content locking plugins, and the best social media tracking plugins.
A few things to keep in mind when selecting any plugins for your WordPress site is to look at how many active installs a plugin has, its rating, if it’s compatible with your WordPress version, and when it was last updated. These factors will give you big clues into how responsive the developers are and whether or not the majority of users like their products.
