Two Premium Social Media WordPress Plugins

Posted on by in Blog

CodeCanyon, the sister site of ThemeForest, has some great premium plugins for WordPress listed in it’s directory.

Two which caught my attention were Social Pop and Social Press. Both plugins make it easier for your visitors to share your content though popular social media websites like Twitter, Digg and Facebook.

Social Pop

Social Pop is simple to set up. You can choose to include the social media icons in posts or pages (or both). The text above the icons, the holder colour and the background colour can all be changed.

The postion can be set to left, centre or right; and the direction the icon goes when someone hovers over it can also be changed.

SocialPop WordPress Plugin

In total 26 social media icons can be added to the sharing section. You can add all icons at the touch of a button but that seems a bit overkill to me. It would be better to select those which are used frequently within your websites niche.

Social Press

Social Press is a social media sharing plugin with a difference. Not only does it let your readers share your content, it also lets you add parameters to your links so you can track via Google Analytics how many clicks are being made.

SocialPress WordPress Plugin

In total 50 social media icons can be selected though additional icons can be added via the admin area.

SocialPress WordPress Plugin

2 different hover effects are available for icons and all icons can be rearranged in the order you want. You can also change the design of each icon by simply uploading over images in the icon directory.

Overview

Social Pop costs $7 whilst Social Press costs $17. If you make a deposit instead of buying directly you will save $2 with each purchase.

Social Pop is a good plugin however there are some good free alternatives* of a similar quality. $7 isn’t much to pay if you do like the look of it though. Social Press may cost $10 more however the ability to track how many clicks are being generated justifies it’s price.

Good luck,
