Socialize

Provides an easy way to selectively add actionable social sharing buttons to your posts content or below the post in a 'Call To Action' box.

Socialize is an easy way to selectively add actionable social sharing buttons to your posts.

You can add sharing buttons in two places:

  1. Inside the content (aligned left or right)
  2. In a box below the content

The plugin was designed to make managing and adding actionable social sharing buttons easier and more efficient. Instead of adding new meta keys like other plugins require, there is an additional panel in your posts admin that allows you to select which sharing buttons you want to display. This is to encourage people to choose more relevant sharing buttons for their posts. By only displaying the more relevant and socially successful posts, you create a form of social proof that might encourage more shares, comments and subscriptions.

You are also provided with a box at the bottom of your posts that asks readers to subscribe and comment. This text can be edited in the 'Socialize Admin Page' and on individual posts/pages. You can also selectively display social sharing buttons in this box the same way you go about inserting sharing buttons in content. This is a great place to ask your readers to do something, like check out one of your services or to leave a comment and subscribe.

All buttons and call to action areas can be easily displayed and hidden at will. You can also change the call to action template and even overwrite the default CSS.
