WordPress: Plugins for Facebook and twitter buttons with counters

Date: April / 14 / 2010 + Comments: 1

I was searching a good plugin for twitter, with a counter, but without using tweetmeme, I don’t see the point to Retweet a post in tweetmeme and not directly in the user twitter account.

For Facebook, I am using two options, I will later consider to left both or just one.

Plugins for WordPress

These are the plugins that this blog is using (at the moment) for Facebook and twitter buttons with counters:

  • Easy Retweet: the counter uses bit.ly (you need to register) and your URLs get automatic shortened.
  • Facebook Widget: This is the default SHARE option from Facebook.com
  • Sharecount for Facebook: It works with fbshare.me or awe.sm, and sends data to Google Analytics. The button looks great but the only downside is that it inserts an iframe :(

Without Plugins

If you don’t want to waste your servers PHP or you don’t use WordPress, just paste the following codes in your HTML:

Facebook:

<a name="fb_share" type="box_count" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php">Share</a><script src="http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share" type="text/javascript"></script>

Facebook (FBshare):
<script src="http://widgets.fbshare.me/files/fbshare.js">

TweetMeme

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"></script>

Stumbleupon:
<script src="http://www.stumbleupon.com/hostedbadge.php?s=5"></script>

Google Buzz: (For WordPress)
