Great Plugin

I’ve been wanting to add Follow Buttons to my site for months now and was glad to find this simple to use plugin. These days ones social networks really are keeping a brand in play so it was nice to see the big options of Twitter and Facebook but I wondered when and if we can count on Instagram being added to the mix of options. So many websites have official accounts to entertain their visitors and a button to direct those people to the account would be excellent.
