Fetches social counts from Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterst and XING and provide beautiful sharing buttons without the use of JavaScript



The SocialMediaEnhancer (SME) provides beautiful styled and static social media sharing buttons for your WordPress blog. It fetches the social counts (share activities) from Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterst in the background without the use of performance critital JavaScript from the social networks.

To provide a optimal presentation of your post at the social networks after sharing, the SME is using the Open Graph Protocol (OGP) to include well formatted meta elements on every post.

Choose a style for the buttons and decide which network do you want to use.

Thanks to MrFloppy for the XING support
