Anyone have any suggestions for a good social sharer?

  • # October 8, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    I am currently using Digg Digg for my social sharers; I especially like the floating sharer they have. However they have pretty much stopped supporting the sharer, and the floating sharer doesn’t work at all if the site is responsive and viewed on a mobile device. I’m curious if anyone has found or can suggest an alternative?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve seen these, but I really like the floating share bar that is at the right side of my posts. I’d like to keep it like that.

    Just design one yourself? We’re actually transitioning away from the insta-click sharing options and moving to a click-type-a-comment-then-share option. As a developer, it’s fantastic because we control the entire design. As visitor of the website I like it more because I can actually voice an opinion on it.

    Liking stuff on Facebook as already become meaningless in my eyes.

    @thedoc – Yah, that’s what I use also. In fact on[ this site](http://noahsdad.com/ “noah’s dad”) I do that. It works great. You can see we get a lot of likes. But the plug ins are good because someone has already done the coding.

    It looks like on that site it’s still using the one-click plugin, as opposed to what I described.

    What I’m describing can be seen here by clicking ‘Share’: http://vanity-theme.tumblr.com/#/blog

    @thedoc – Hmm. Nice looking site, but your buttons are hide. I think it makes it to hard for someone to see them.

    That’s the idea. (fyi: the link I sent you is just a demo blog for a theme that we developed, not a real blog)

    We want *quality* sharing from the themes that we create. We determined that there is no value in liking things for users. If they want to actually “share” something, then that’s what they can do by clicking any of the links we provide.

    I used it as example to show you because it’s completely styled by us. You don’t need to have a show/hide like we’re doing, but if you go the *sharing* route as opposed to the *liking* route, you get full control.

    @thedoc Hmmm. Interesting concept. As you can see we are doing [REALLY well](http://noahsdad.com/target-down-syndrome/ “target down syndrome”) with our existing sharers, I just want to clean them up a bit. :)

    There was an awesome article talking about the difference between the two ideas, I haven’t been able to find it!

    It’s all about page view conversions. It’d be interesting for you to switch for a few weeks and see if there is an increase or decrease in overall traffic.

    @thedoc Yah, I’d like to talk to you more about it. By the way are you a designer, developer, or both?

    # October 29, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    I don’t think I’m a bad designer but my core skill set is coding so I label myself as a developer.

    I found the post!

    @thedoc Very cool. Thanks for sharing! Are you on Skype by chance? Any chance I could connect with you there?
