Social media buttons are being replaced by the share count widgets such as tweetmeme retweet widget, digg counter, facebook share and more. In this article, we will show you how you can add different social media share count buttons in WordPress.

While I attempt to provide you with the most logical guide to start with as default values in the control panel (e.g. http://www.twitter.com/yourname where you just replace yourname), not all of these services follow the same profile links that I provided. In some cases, you need to customize your “public link” such as in Yelp, and LinkedIn to use the default urls that I provide. If you don’t know your public profile, I will have a very hard time figuring it out for you. The easiest way to figure it out is to log in to your social media site, and find a button that says, “View Profile.” This is more often than not the profile URL you should input. This is the method I used in adding the default URLs. Also note that I don’t use all of these social media sites. I just created accounts quickly to find a likely default URL. They could be wrong.

Please ensure you actually placed the social share buttons either as social widget (in your widget area) or as floating icons under question 5). The Premium Plugin makes placing the social icons especially easy and also allows you to place sticky social share icons on your site, define the placement of the social share icons by margins and many other options, see https://www.ultimatelysocial.com/usm-premium/.
