Easy sharing and connecting on social networks. Display on posts or use widgets or shortcode. Also Twitter name/hashtag to link converter.

== Description ==

= Sharing content =

The plugin currently supports the following networks for sharing your content:

* Facebook (like, share and send buttons)
* Twitter
* Buffer
* Google +1
* Pinterest
* LinkedIn
* Tumblr
* StumbleUpon
* Delicious
* Digg
* Reddit
* Myspace
* Hyves

On Tweet and Buffer buttons you can specify a Twitter handle which is then appended to the tweet a visitor sends (like "... via @WordPress"). An email send button is also included.

You can decide which networks to support on your blog, where the buttons will appear (either above or below the content). Through drag and drop you can easily change the order in which the buttons appear. 

For each button you can choose a different type (not all types are available for each button):

* button
* button with counter on the side
* button with counter on top
* small icon
* small icon with text
* medium icon
* medium icon with text
* large icon

You can also choose the orientation of the buttons: 

* horizontal (buttons are placed side by side)
* vertical (buttons are placed below each other) 

= Divider = 

In version 2.0.4 three dividers were added to each list. These might be useful in ordering the buttons, especially in the case of varying button types used with a horizontal orientation. A divider will split the element containing the buttons in two, allowing for more customization. 

= Shortcode =

It is also possible to only let the buttons appear where you want by using shortcode. The shortcode function has it's own list of buttons with the same possibilities as the list for content. Use the shortcode [social_share/] in the content where you would like to display the buttons.

= Widget =

The widget has it's own list of buttons with the same possibilities as the list for posts & pages. You can however specify a fixed title and url to use for the buttons in the widget.

= Follow Widget = 

Since version 2.0.0 an extra widget is added with the possibility to provide easy links to your profiles on other social networks.

The networks currently supported for the Follow Widget are:

* Facebook
* Twitter
* Google+
* Pinterest
* LinkedIn (including company and group links)
* Tumblr
* Myspace
* Hyves
* YouTube
* Flickr
* 500px
* Picasa
* DeviantArt
* Spotify

A button for an RSS feed is also included. Of course the type, order and orientation of the buttons is also configurable for the Follow Widget. Each button for the Follow Widget supports the following types:

* small icon
* small icon with text
* medium icon
* medium icon with text
* large icon

To use a button you must enter your user / profile id or username for the network. To use the RSS feed button you must enter the full url. 

= Automatic Twitter links =

This plugin also includes a configurable & improved version of my earlier Automatic Twitter Links plugin. You can decide if you want to convert Twitter names and/or hashtags to links. 
Twitter names will link to their Twitter profile and hashtags will link to the Twitter search page.

= Bitly =

Since version 2.0.5 the plugin has the option to use bitly to shorten the urls for the tweet button. To use it you need to register with bitly and fill in your bitly username and API key.

= Pinterest =

Since version 2.0.5 the plugin has the option to show Pinterest buttons. The plugin tries to find the featured image or first image in the content if available. If no image is available the button is omitted. 
Since version 2.0.7 is is possible to enter the URL of a default image to use in case no image was found. You can also set the plugin to always use the default image regardless of any available images.

= Open Graph =

Since version 2.0.5 the plugin also has the option to automatically create Open Graph tags on your WordPress site. These will tell Facebook for example which image to display when sharing a page.
