We include many styling options, and you can automatically insert the buttons before and/or after the post content. You can also use the
[shared_counts] shortcode to insert them inside the content.
We provide a one-click option to retrieve both HTTP and HTTPS share counts, ensuring you don’t lose your share counts when upgrading your website to HTTPS.
Shared Counts was created with site performance in mind, even at large scale. It is used on several large websites that get tens of millions of page views each month. Our unique and creative caching methods have a minimal affect on site overhead. Leveraging the SharedCount.com API, we can retrieve (almost) all share counts in a single request.
Additionally, Shared Counts was built to be developer friendly! We provide very liberal usage of hooks and filters. Everything is customizable and the possibilities are near limitless. Unlike other plugins all data (counts) are stored and cached in post_meta which makes it easy to access for extending (e.g. fetch top 10 most shared posts on your site).
