Does switching to another theme affects the social media counts of existing articles?
I'm working for a new theme for an existing websites with a lot of articles. I'd like to preserve all the shares and likes on those pages.
I did some research on this topic. And what I know now is that shares and likes are related to the url of a page or article. So, as long I keep the permalink/url unchanged switching theme wouldn't affect my shares and likes.
Am I right about that? Any suggustions?
