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!# October 11, 2012 at 1:27 pm
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.# October 29, 2012 at 3:48 pm
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.# October 29, 2012 at 4:26 pm
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.# 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!
