We were getting enormous amount of emails from people asking us how to make a floating share box on their WordPress site. Whether it was a plugin? After collaborating with our team, we decided that it was more efficient if we create a free plugin rather than replying to each individual email.
What does this Smart Sharing Plugin do?
Smart sharing adds a floating box with social media buttons in single posts only. By default, you can pick between retweet, facebook, digg, and stumbleupon. But you are not limited to these choices because there is an option to add your own custom codes.
What is the Advantage of this plugin?
This plugin applies B.F Skinner’s Positive Reinforcement theory to social media marketing. Normally buttons are placed either at the top of the post, or the bottom of the post. While both of those positions are OK, they are not the best. If you place them at the bottom of the post, then you are expecting that the user reads all the way to the bottom. Sometimes users like the post, and they don’t read full articles. But they would still share your articles if there was a positive reinforcement. This plugin adds a small floating box which scrolls down with the user, so they can vote whenever they are done.
