That’s how many plugins show up when you type “social share buttons” into the WordPress.org plugin directory. And while that number might be impressive, it doesn’t even count all the quality premium options out there.
So, if you’re looking to add social sharing to your WordPress site, you’d better block out about 8-12 hours of your day to painstakingly sort through all your options.
Or, you could always cut out the junk and just look at the best of the best (psssst – that’s what this post is all about).
I’ve done the work to give you only the best free and premium social sharing plugins so that you can pick the one that’s absolutely perfect for your site. Without wasting your valuable time and effort.
