  • Hi David,

    Google+ does not have a public API that lets you query share counts, unlike Facebook and Twitter. As soon as Google releases it, we’ll be sure to add it in.

    Sincerely,

    Hi Andy,

    I’ve seen a few WordPress plugins that are able to show Google+ shares such as Flare:

    How do they do this and can this not be used in Shareaholic?

    David

    There are a few hacky ways to get Google+ share counts, the problem with those approaches are that they’re inaccurate (e.g. counting button clicks) and can break all of a sudden if Google changes their code. So in order to prevent trying to maintain unofficial code, we only use official share counts. Hopefully, Google+ adds this in soon.

    Cheers for the reply Andy.
