Engaging Buttons

Easily add research-based, engaging buttons (such as "Respect" or "Important") to your site.

It’s easy to click “Like” on a heartwarming story about a local hero. But what about a fair, but counter-attitudinal, post in a comment section? That may make it a little more challenging to “Like.”

Through our research on social media buttons, we found that people were more likely to click “Respect” over “Like” in comment sections, and significantly more likely to click “Respect” when the view expressed differed from their own.

The Engaging Buttons WordPress plugin allows you to easily set-up and configure alternative buttons to “Like” (and lots more!) on your website.

The Engaging Buttons plugin is made by the Engaging News Project. The Engaging News Project (ENP) provides research-based techniques for engaging online audiences in commercially viable and democratically beneficial ways.

Features

  • Create buttons for your website: Respect, Recommend, Important, Useful, and/or Thoughtful
  • Customize your button by selecting the design and colors that best fits your website.
  • Easily display your Top Posts with the Engaging Button widget, shortcode, or with one click from the settings page.
  • (Optional) Send click data back to the Engaging News Project so we can continue to provide free, research-based, high-quality plugins and update the plugin with high-engagement words.
  • Customizable by developers via CSS and PHP (WordPress filters and hooks).
  • Lightweight & Performance-focused: Only adds 2 files and ~2kb to your site (with GZIP compression).
