How to add free Social Sharing Buttons on Wordpress

**Update notice**: Since we wrote this post we've had almost 100,000 downloads of our WordPress plugin. We've also improved it a lot so we're doing a remake of this blog post, to make it actual and effective. 

You're probably looking for some fine-looking social share buttons for your WordPress website, right? Look no more, we've got your back.

GetSocial is like an app store for all your social media needs. In our plugin, you'll find all sorts of tools that can help you grow your shares, traffic & conversions. It's super easy to install and no code is required (it's that easy).

You can find the official plugin download page here: Today, however, I'd like to walk you through the installation process using the Wordpress Plugin Menu, which I hope you find easier and more intuitive.

Step 1 - Browsing the Plugin Database 

We recommend your search for "GetSocial Share Buttons". You'll find our plugin which is called WP Share Buttons & Analytics by GetSocial.

Step 3 - Activating your account

You're one step away from starting to use GetSocial on your website. Just activate your account on this screen and you'll be ready to go.
