More engagement please! We are all no strangers to this request and desire when it comes to our social media efforts. But though this repeated lament can get irritating, the fact of the matter is that businesses do need followers, likers and connections to engage with us in order for our social media efforts to be effective, and sharing is a big part of that. Here is a great WordPress plugin to help your biz have a flare for sharing:
Flare is a social sharing WordPress plugin that displays a vertical sharing bar alongside your blog post. As your reader scrolls down your article or blog post, the sharing bar moves with them. Another frustration for business owners in the past has been the lack of sharing options on mobile devices. On a mobile device, the Flare sharing bar appears across the top of the posts, allowing users to easily share your social media efforts.
Other useful options Flare offers is the ability to pick and choose which types of blog posts you want Flare to appear on, which social media icons you want to offer, and the order in which you want them to be displayed.
Flare is a free plugin that is not actively supported by the author, but is monitored for serious bugs that may need correcting.
