Shared Counts – Social Media Share Buttons


Shared Counts is a WordPress social media share buttons plugin. Sharing buttons increase traffic and engagement by helping readers share your posts and pages to their friends on social media.

Included Buttons
– Facebook Share Button
– Pinterest Pin Button
– Yummly Button
– Twitter Tweet Button (using the third-party API)
– Email Sharing (with reCAPTCHA support to prevent abuse)
– Share Count Total
– Print Button
– LinkedIn Share Button

Facebook, Pinterest, Yummly, and Twitter buttons support social count display and tracking.

Styling and Display

We include many share button styling options, so you can pick the perfect look for you site. Additionally, you can automatically insert the share buttons before and/or after the post content. Want granular or manual control? No problem! You can also use the [shared_counts] shortcode to insert them inside your content as you see fit.

HTTP Recovery / Upgrading to HTTPS

We provide a one-click option to retrieve both HTTP and HTTPS share counts, ensuring you don’t lose your share counts when upgrading your website to HTTPS.


Unlike other social sharing tools, this plugin does not use cookies, tracking scripts, or store any user data.


Shared Counts was created with site performance in mind, even at large scale. It is used on several large websites that get tens of millions of page views each month. Our unique and creative caching methods have a minimal affect on site overhead. Leveraging the API, we can retrieve (almost) all share counts in a single request.


Additionally, Shared Counts was built to be developer friendly! We provide very liberal usage of hooks and filters. Everything is customizable and the possibilities are near limitless. Unlike other plugins all data (counts) are stored and cached in post_meta which makes it easy to access for extending (e.g. fetch top 10 most shared posts on your site). We have extensive documentation on our website and we’re also on GitHub.

Works best with my theme. No errors in code or problems with caching. It's a shame that it is no longer being developed and that the last update was some time ago. Thank you!

Good and effective plugin. I use it to simply show the good looking social buttons but don't display counts (to improve page speed). Very easy to configure.

It was either gonna be Shared Counts or Social Warfare. I felt Shared Counts was cheaper, written just as well, very easy to work with. We did some crazy custom stuff. - saved HTTP and HTTPS counts - even changed permalink structure, and had it make calls to the old structure as well. So basically we were able to combine 3 counts: - old permalink structure in HTTP - old permalink structure in HTTPS - new permalink structure in HTTPS I'm happy camper. Counts are even cached so as to avoid slowing down your site under heavy load. Love you guys!!!

I have tried many, and this is by far the best. The previous plugin we used was good as well, but it did not allow the ability to regain your shares after URL changes. This one does, and works just as you would expect it too, and it is lightweight. Love it, thanks Bill and Jared!
