If you own or operate a website, one of the most important features you can have available to your users is a share button. If your posts are meant to be sharable, and if your users share your posts or pages on different social media platforms using their own accounts, it’s like free advertising, and is almost guaranteed to help increase the traffic on your site. Sometimes, though, displaying the share button for each and every social media site out there (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, etc) can look messy and even a bit spammy — we’ve all seen it. If only there were a way to allow your users to share something to any social media platform without having to display all those links and buttons. If you have a WordPress site, however, there is a way to achieve something really similar with the AddToAny Share Buttons WordPress plugin.

With the AddtoAny WordPress plugin, your users can easily share your posts and pages on over 100 social media platforms, websites, and apps, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, LinkedIn, Whatsapp, Tumblr, and more. With the AddtoAny Plugin, it’s your choice whether or not you want to only include the big “+” button, or if you’d prefer to include some standalone social media share buttons along side it, like for social media networks that are popular or that you might want to encourage your users to share to, such as Facebook or Pinterest.

You can customize things like text accompanying the button(s), button placement on the page, button size, etc. There are even customization options that accommodate mobile views of your buttons. In terms of user experience, the plugin gives your users the option to search for their preferred sharing website or social media platform so they don’t have to wade through all of the options if you’ve chosen to include a lot of them. If you want to give your users a clean, non-spammy way to share your content, this plugin is a great option.
