Social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter have motivated businesses and corporations all over to take advantage of the sheer volume of users on these social media websites. Here is a list of plugins for Wordpress,  that should help your social media efforts!

  1. Flexo Facebook Manager: this handy little plugin allows you to integrate Facebook into your web site. This means that not only will people be reading your materials, but they will also have the ability to share it on Facebook, as well as use their facebook accounts through your website! This gives you way more movement in your site. Share your custom fan pages. Created by: flexo studio
  2. Google+ Page Badge: this plugin gives you the ability to have a widget on the side of your page which will give people access to their Google+ accounts. What does this mean? This means that when they click this, all of their friends and contacts on Google+ will also see your blog, which means that you get lots more traffic! The more people you have coming, the more chances you have of having a company advertise with you. Handy huh? Created by: bkmacdaddy
  3. Social Connect Widget: this plugin gives you a widget that you can place on your page. This widget has links to all of the most popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter. This means that not only are there new backlinks to your web site, but you also have more people visiting your site! Created by: Scrybes WordPress Hosting
  4. Storify: this plugin allows you to embed a storify story into your posts. This, again, means that you now have more links to high traffic social media websites. This improves your SEO, which in turn gives you a higher rating with search engines, and more opportunities for traffic to see your page. Created by: Storify
  5. Facebook Likebox Slider: Facebook is one of the most searched for items on the web. This plugin gives your website Facebook headers, faces, and streams.
