Grow by Mediavine is an easy, all-in-one social sharing plugin. You can add social share buttons that integrate beautifully with your website’s design, leading to increased engagement and reach.
The free version of the plugin allows you to customize the four most prominent social media platforms; Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn.
For all social media platforms, you can personalize the social share buttons to your liking. Choose from a variety of designs and utilize custom colours to catch the eye. You can even include social share counts.
You can place the social sharing buttons before and after the post content, or have the buttons follow your readers as they scroll up and down the page, in the form of a social media floating sidebar.
Display the post’s social share count to showcase the popularity of your content.
