Tom Anthony released a useful plugin last week called Most Shared Posts. The plugin displays your blog posts that have been shared the most on Google+, Facebook and Twitter; which is the top three social media websites at the moment.
The plugin is pretty straight forward. You can choose to Facebook Likes, Twitter Tweets or Google +1s. You also have the option of changing the font size, changing the icon size and removing icons altogether. Results are cached to ensure good performance.
To display the most shared posts, you just need to drag the Most Shared Posts widget to your chosen widget area.
Most Shared Posts is a simple plugin but it’s also a very useful one. Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are currently the most popular social media websites for sharing links making this a great way to highlight your most popular articles to your visitors. Hopefully in future versions we will see other social media services such as StubmleUpon, Delicious and Reddit added to give us more choice as to what sharing sites are included in the top post calculation.
