    We all want maximum exposure for our content.

Each of these plugins is unique, but they share the same purpose, which is to help you increase your social media visibility and get more traffic from social media sites.
    We all are different: some of us like floating social bars, while others prefer sticky bars; some bloggers use side bars, while others use horizontal scroll bars; there are also bloggers who choose social media sharing buttons instead of share bars.
