Best Social Bookmarking Wordpress Plugin – Sociable WP Plugin

Did you notice that I have added some cool social bookmark icons to my blog ? A bunch of tiny bookmark icons was put at the bottom of each post. Here they are :

When you click on each icon, you will be taken to one of the many social bookmarking sites to submit your post.

Of course I can easily add more bookmark icons as I wish to any theme with some modifications on style.css file and others files such as index.php, single.php, …, I still do not choose this way. Because when I change to another themes, I must re-add the same code to each theme. So boring … Plugin is an excellent alternative. I came up with a few social bookmark plugins such as Social Bookmarks, Social Bookmark Links, Social Bookmarking RELOADED, … But Sociable WP plugin is my choice! Because it is beautiful, lightweight and easy to use :)

Hint: Do not add so many bookmark icons because it does look a bit obnoxious for users. It also increase loading time of your page. The fix is so simple. You simply uncheck the ones you don’t want to use in Social WP Plugin admin.
