Socializer! helps your visitors to share your blog on top social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, by eMail (including gMail), even translate your pages, get short links, get HTML Reference links and Share links in order to use them on their sites or share them with their friends and in forums, explore your blog even more in the official Google Search pages, Follow you on Facebook and Twitter…, all of this without compromising the speed of your pages.

You can see Socializer! in action, e.g. at Live Desktop Gadgets

Socializer! is self-dependent and safe: it does not interact with your database and it keeps your blog speedy, since it loads immediately scripts for the popular share options (Facebook, Twitter), postponing other options for users who actually need them. It supports SSL meaning your visitors will feel secure.

Alternatively or along with content Share Bars, which are especially useful in responsive designs, you can use the global Socializer! FLOATING bar, a vertical social bar that remains visible all the time, no matter how long a page might be, on a fixed location you can define with precision. Normal Sidebar widgets are also available.

You can use simple CSS directions to customize and fine tune the position, alignment, colors, borders, etc, of the Share bars and Widgets according to your needs. If you are not familiar with CSS or just prefer a preview of your settings before you apply them, you can use the convenient On Line Socializer! Style Editor, a free tool, easily accessible from the Socializer! settings page in your dashboard.

Socializer! includes options on what to share (posts or pages, or both posts and pages), to place your Share bars at the top of your content or at the bottom, or in both locations. Sharing bars can appear also on Archives (Categories, Tags, Dates, etc), although this would be overwhelming for your visitors and is not recommended.

Socializer! Share bars can be invoked also by using the [SocializerNow] Shortcode anywhere you like, adding flexibility you may need, especially in responsive themes.

You can also create manually occasional share-links independently of the regular buttons, whenever you need to have such references in an article of yours.

Socializer! supports the option of hiding the counts in icons that appear immediately on your pages, an option which can be very useful, when you don’t want your visitors to see immediately how many times a post or page is shared, or even if you just need smaller versions of the Sharing bars. However, note that Twitter won’t support View Count anymore. You can let your visitor share your pages, but you won’t get from these networks a hint of their popularity.

Socializer! supports also automatic detection of mobile phones, in which case it lets you decide if you want to hide the Floating bar automatically on cellphones (your caching plugin, if you use one, must also support this function).

If you have a personal, business or fan page in Facebook and / or Twitter, you can let Socializer! add a Follow button in the Share bars. You can see live how Follow works

Socializer! is compatible with WordPress multisite MS / MU installations. Networks supported, and more: Facebook, Twitter, Google Bookmarks, Reddit, eMail / gMail recommendation, Google Translate, copying raw HTML Code (href) for Links and Share Links, Short URL versions, share in Linkedin, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, N4G, and more. This list may change if new sites become popular, or older ones disappear.
