    Lots of plugins with “sharing” and “like us” function. But only share and follow has the Bookmark this site option which is important as well. Saving your site name on there browser bookmarks/favorites can help them come back again on your site. Very helpful admin, thank you for sharing. Lots of appreciation.

    Hi there,
    I’d like to firstly say thanks for submitting your great post to my community design news.
    Also, I would add Socialize – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/socialize/
    I use it on my site!

  8. djavupixel

    I used to use these plugins but sincerely it is better to integrate twitter, facebook, etc in your theme.
    First: it is easy
    Second: it makes your blog faster (as the plugin has not to be called, go through the conditions you made in the admin area, etc)

    best regards,

  9. wparena
