Here are 30+ of the best social media plugins for WordPress that will help you do that: Here are some cool #socialmedia plugins for #WordPress Click To Tweet

Best Social Media Plugins for WordPress: Revive Old PostBest Social Media Plugins for WordPress: Revive Old Post

Revive Old Post has been a mainstay in the social media plugins market for a while now. It’s a great way to get your previous content shared on social media regularly and on autopilot.

In short, all you do is activate the plugin, set the time intervals, the networks it should post to, and you’re done. From that point on, the plugin works automatically.

(Some of the things you can adjust: what makes an article eligible for sharing, the intervals between posts, posts that must not be shared, how many times an article should be posted, formats, custom scheduling, logs, etc.)

A great plugin that offers a couple of useful things for your site, such as social media icons, share buttons, “total share” counters, and subscribe buttons.

The plugin also comes with free and paid add-ons for: extra buttons, YouTube video share pop-up, sticky share bars, Google Analytics, social share optimization, and more. Why the name? Well, it looks much like the social media module you can find at Mashable.

9. Social Buzz

An interesting plugin that gives you a social graph, similar to what Mashable uses. It illustrates the number of people sharing a particular piece of content on your blog. Apart from that, you also get a standard set of social media buttons.

The idea is to help you drive more traffic by presenting how your articles are doing at the moment (what’s hot).

This concludes PART 1 of this list.

Okay, I know that 9 is probably already too many social media plugins to have on a single site. A good approach here would be to not treat this as an 9-course dinner. But instead, a buffet. So, pick only the plugins that you fancy the most. Leave the other ones.

But wait, there’s more! We actually have PART 2 of this post published on our new blog: Revive.Social (it’s where you can find entries 10-31). We’ve built the site to give our social media plugins some more breathing room on the web and establish them a completely new brand. Check it out:
