Provide your users the option to follow you on selected social networks and enable them to share your posts / pages. But keep as much control about your and your users data as possible, ie until they really decide to go to the social network pages.
th23 Social offers you various options to show social sharing buttons:
* Decide to show the social bars always or only on single posts / pages
* Embed social follow bars after each x entries in overviews like archives and search results
* Auto-insert a social sharing bar at the end of each entry
* Use shortcodes to manually embed social bars wherever you want – including the option to specify additional shortcodes (you might have used earlier) to be translated
Counting of followers and shares is done on your own server, while the current count can be changed manually to be in sync with already existing numbers. It is possible to show the number of shares / followers as total and / or per social network.
Out-of-the-box supported social networks:
* Instagram (only following)
* RSS (only following)
Manual extension with additional social services / networks is possible in the admin area. Selective enabling / disabling for sharing / following is possible per social service.
Strictly no loading of external scripts or resources – making a GDPR (DSGVO) compliant usage easier.
