The plugin calls the social buttons on demand which is great for minimizing the number of initial requests and improving loading speeds.

Any type of custom designs can be created for the widgets (no need to use the default buttons provided by the social networks) and events(like, +1, tweet, etc.) can be fired up with the plugin's API calls.

P.S. Google Plus widget requires PHP to work (the PHP file is already included in the package).

Web pages usually display multiple widgets of different networks (like Facebook Like, Tweet button, etc.) for social sharing.

ShareCount is an open source script that collects the number of sharing activities in a single counter.

The counter sums up the number of sharings of an URL in Twitter, Facebook, Digg and Delicious.

The code of the script is pretty straightforward and it is easy to define new services.

Similar to professional services like AddThis or ShareThis, but much simpler, you can add social bookmarking options to any website by simply inserting a JavaScript file.


By default, the widget supports StumbleUpon, Reddit, Digg, Google Buzz, Twitter, Facebook Like and Hutch (the ones to be displayed can be customized).

However, as you can get the source, adding new ones is very easy by simply defining them to the JavaScript array, the CSS file and the sprite image.
