WordPress Sharing Plugin

Did you know that how your content is shared is more important than if it's shared? Why? Because if it's shared in a way that doesn't drive traffic back to your site, it's worthless. What if you could make sure that every time your content is shared, it's shared in the most optimal way? That's where Social Warfare can help. Social Warfare helps you customize how your content is shared and get more out of every single share that takes place on your website.

You can choose from the top social networks sharing buttons, including:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google+
  • Pinterest
  • LinkedIn

You can also choose where you want the buttons to show up. Choose from the following placement options:

  • Above the post content
  • Below the post content
  • Both above and below the post content
  • None (or) Manual placement

We also give you the ability to have floating share buttons follow your readers down the screen when static (non-floating) buttons are not in view. This way the reader will always have easy access to your share buttons, no matter where they scroll on your page.

Social Proof

Proudly display how many times your content has been shared-- even tweet counts (with a Premium license)! Social Proof is a powerful psychological tool that has been proven to influence even more shares.

Popular Posts Widget based on Social Share Counts

Wouldn't you love to show what your most popular posts are based on the number of social shares's they've received? Social Warfare allows you to do just that.

You can even choose to display most popular posts on a specific social network!

Social Warfare's Popular Posts widget allows you to display and customize the look with:

  • Post thumbnail images
  • Image and text size
  • Custom visual themes
  • Custom date range

Click to Tweet Quotes

A simple and effective way to create tweetable quotes right inside your posts or pages. This has proven to increase the average number of tweets per article dramatically.

Use Shortcodes to Manually Place Share Buttons Anywhere

If you want to place buttons in the middle of an article, you can with our shortcode. How about adding share buttons in a page that actually share out a different page altogether (like a "Thank You" page with share buttons that share the "Subscribe" page)? You can do that as well!

If you're experienced with PHP, you can also easily hook Social Warfare into your theme templates for hyper customization.

Content Protection

We've built our highly demanded Frame Buster right into Social Warfare so that you are protected from content hijackers seeking to place their advertisements on top of your content without your permission.

Pin All the Images

Enabling the Image Hover Pin Button will place a "Pin" button over top of every image inside of your content when a reader hovers their mouse over it. This makes every image on your page highly sharable to Pinterest!

Powerful Share Customization

"I use Social Warfare because how things are shared when I’m not there to do it is important!"
Peg Fitzpatrick, author of The Art and Science of Social Media

Social Warfare is among the pioneers of customizing how your content is shared, particularly with Pinterest. It allows you to decide exactly which image, title and description appears when your content is shared on sites like Facebook and Google+. This also applies to any other networks that use Open Graph data for social shares.

On top of that, you can upload a custom Pinterest image and write a custom description so that when someone clicks the pin button, the exact image you've chosen shows up with exactly the description you've written. No more hoping that your readers choose the best image and write an optimal description for you!

In addition to that, you can also write a custom tweet for when someone clicks on the Twitter button. The exact tweet you wrote will be displayed in the Twitter share box and Social Warfare will automatically add the link to your content and your @username to the end of it.

These capabilities are what professional social media marketers and bloggers have been waiting for.

Social Warfare Sharing Options, Custom Design and Placements

Customize which sharing networks you display, how your buttons look and where they show up.

You can choose from 6 different button shapes, 8 different color themes plus the ability to choose custom colors for your buttons. The design combinations are unlimited.

You will also get 6 different Click to Tweet styles and an option to create your own style via your theme's CSS.

Minimum Social Proof

If you would prefer to only show counts after a certain minimum number of shares has been met (to avoid "negative social proof"), you can do that as well. Or if you'd rather just have no counts showing at all, just turn them off altogether.

Share Recovery: Your Lost Share Counts Returned!

Have you ever changed permalink structures, domain prefixes, connection protocols (http-https) or just flat out changed domains and ended up losing all your social share counts?

We've built a tool right into Social Warfare called Share Recovery which allows you to get back your lost share counts if you've ever had to modify your permalink settings.

Social Authorship, Twitter Cards, Rich Pins and More

It nice to have your stuff shared on social media, it's even nicer when you get mentioned in the social share! With Social Warfare you can ensure that your authorship is always in place, including:

  • Facebook author and publisher attribution
  • Facebook app link (advanced users)
  • Twitter publisher and author attribution
  • "via @username" added to the ends of tweets
  • "via @username" added to the ends of pin descriptions

You can also activate Twitter Cards (Large Image Cards) so that tweets sent from your site are always media rich and much more likely to get engagement.

Our plugin also ensures that your site is Rich Pin ready so that your Pins look as good as possible.

Link Shortening, Analytics Campaign and Button-click Tracking

Shorten shared links automatically using your own Bitly credentials so you can track how many clicks are occurring on your links.

Additionally, if you're a Google Analytics user, you can set up Analytics tracking so that each shared link contains a networks specific UTM tracking code. This way you can track all inbound links that come as a direct result of Social Warfare shares.

You can also activate Event Tracking so that you can also see in Google Analytics exactly how many times your buttons are clicked.

It is without question that Social Warfare is the most powerful sharing plugin available for WordPress. You get all these premium features while still benefitting form a super-fast, light-weight code base.
