Here’s 10 Of The Best Social Plugins For WordPress This Year In 2021
In complete transparency, I’ve not tested a single one of these plugins; some could work; some might ruin your WordPress install. I suppose it’s a little bit of pot luck, not unlike Russian Roulette, which I’ll add I’ve never lost at yet.
1 Social Media Mega Sharer Plugin
I can’t tell you how much Myspace has helped me in my entrepreneurial journey. It’s my go-to platform for networking with the pros. SMMS is one of my favorites when it comes to social media plugins.
Once installed, SMMS will systematically take every piece of content from your website and post it to your Myspace profile in one hit. Database details, passwords, login details, user accounts, and much, much more.
SMMS is worth its weight in gold, and I can’t recommend it enough.
- Set it and forget it. Watch the traffic come in.
2 Mixol Social Share Plugin
Mixol, a curious name indeed, is one of the best social media plugins for WordPress. Upon installation and not unlike the Social Media Mega Sharer plugin, it will automatically post all of your content to the network of your choice. Not just Myspace.
Mixol does things differently; it removes the letters M, I, X, O, L from the title and description once shared.
- Mixol is a great social media plugin for user engagement.
- Perfect for pharmaceutical and health-related bloggers.
3 All The Buttons Social Sharing
With so many social networks available these days, it’s hard to keep track of them. Not anymore, ATB displays all the networks at once in a single column in your content. Freeing up your time to do what you do best, write content. It’s a win-win.
- Worry-free adds all networks to your blog at once.
- Premium version available, which lets you have a two-column layout.
4 Auto Tweeter Plugin
Auto Tweeter, upon activation, will send 98 tweets to your account. Some could be in Russian, or Chinese, so use Google Translate if need be.
As a bonus, Auto Tweeter will add randomized links to every tweet, meaning your Twitter account is sure to be posting only the freshest content. Comrade.
- Easy to use.
- Automation of your Twitter account.
- Connect with lots of other users, grow your network.
5 BookFace Sharing Plugin
For legal reasons, this plugin had to change its name from Facebook Sharer to BookFace. I get it, totally understandable. Bookface has some excellent features available, and for what it costs, it’s a steal.
- Shares posts to Facebook.
- As well as pages.
6 G Plus’d Sharer Plugin
Google Plus is another prime example of networking. To this day, I have scored many clients from using this platform, and I love it. The G Plus’d Sharer plugin will share every eighth post you create, automatically.
If you’d like to change the frequency, you can purchase an add-on, which alters this to every third post beginning with the letter Y.
- No negatives.
- Constantly maintained.
- Regular updates.
7 Instafam Share Plugin
If pictures are your thing, then this social media plugin is one of the best for Instagram. Instafam, once installed, will require you to connect your Instagram account.
Upon doing this, the magic of Instafam begins. Instafam searches through your pictures and deletes the ones where you look ugly. Pictures that are leftover automatically get added as widgets in the sidebar, footer, and any enabled widget area.
Making sure everyone who visits your blog can see how much you’re into photography.
- Can free up space on your phone once the Instagram account is linked.
- New content, automatically adding pictures to widgets, means your site will never look dull.
8 TubeYou + Plugin
While TubeYou + is not a social media sharing plugin as such, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention it. TubeYou + has stacks of features to help you grow your following; let’s look at a couple.
This plugin works two-fold. Firstly you’ll need to connect your YouTube account once installed. TubeYou + will then download all available video content from your YouTube channel, redub them and re-upload and save them to your desktop.
Saving them to your desktop means you can add them to another channel or share them on Instagram.
Languages supported so far are Archi, Klingon, Pirahã, Pitjantjatjara. TubeYou + has a premium version. The premium version lets you add subtitles as well; however, the only language it supports is Tuyuca.
- Easy to setup.
- Saves to desktop.
9 Chatterboxist Social Media Plugin
Another personal favorite of mine is the Chatterboxist plugin. You’ll need to connect every single social media account you have to get it working.
That said, once you have, you’ll never look back. Chatterboxist will continuously share your content on all the social networks you select.
Timer settings are once every 3 seconds, although you can purchase an add-on to reduce this down to 0.5 seconds if needs be.
- Add networks, link social accounts. Enjoy the web traffic.
10 Soul Socials Plugin
The Soul Socials Plugin offers a range and varied mix of features. You’ll need to connect some social accounts to make Soul Socials work. Once connected, the plugin will automatically import every single social media post you’ve ever made in the entirety of your life.
Amazing right? Plenty of fresh content for your blog hit import, and you’ve got so many opportunities to improve your blog’s visibility!
Once the social media content gets imported, you’ll notice that all the content is in a font called: Comic Sans. Changing the font requires a premium extension.
- New content. So much content.
