WordPress is a great blogging platform and as its popularity continues to grow many people are asking how to add social media to WordPress. WordPress already includes a media button in the “All in One SEO Plugin” area that will automatically add social media icons, but what about the other icons? And how do you specify which social networking websites should be included? This article walks you through how to do all of this.

There are a couple of different ways to add social sharing buttons to your WordPress site. One plugin does it for you by integrating some functionality from the popular TweetDeck along with the Facebook like button and TweetList plugin. This is a nice solution because it does not require the user to do anything but insert these three codes in their WordPress installation. You do not have to do anything more except select the buttons and enable them by clicking on the “oggle” icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen. In most cases this plugin will do the trick. It is however, only compatible with versions of WordPress before 4.5.

Another answer for how to add social media to WordPress is to use Theano. This plugin automatically adds the social media icons that Theano supports. To use this plugin you need to first go to the “add new plugins” screen and then click on “Theano”. Loading this new plugin will place the required icons where you want them on your blog.

A third option is to use one of the many “social bookmarking” plug-ins for WordPress. This is a bit more work, but if you have some knowledge of how to use the different features of your WordPress blog you can get this plugin to integrate social media onto your WordPress blog very easily. To install this plugin go to “plug-ins” and scroll down to “WPTuts+.txt”. This is the default WordPress password protection file and contains all your login details, which enables you to login using the social bookmarking sites.

Once installed simply activate the plugin, login to your WordPress site and create accounts for all your accounts that you wish to share. These accounts will be linked to your site, so they will share the same content. This will enable you to see who has been online in your site, and you can then log in and reply to posts and messages from these users. It is also possible to add comments to any post or message you like. Many of these plug-ins also allow you to ping other blogs and web pages.

A fourth option is to use the media-sharing plug-in AKashboard. This works with both Facebook and Twitter. All you need to do is login to your Facebook account and then login to your Twitter account. Once logged in to both these sites, it is a simple case of clicking on the appropriate icon to start adding your social network to your websites. To share files through these media sharing sites, simply copy the short URL of the file you would like to share and paste into the chat box prompt, before sending it as a message.

One of the final, and potentially most effective, of the WordPress social plug-ins is the Contact widget. This widget enables you to list your email addresses along with their names, email addresses, and websites. By navigating to ‘Settings’ and then clicking on ‘Wireframe’, this allows you to customize how the widget appears. This widget is easy to use; simply add a few column widths and select what information you would like to display. In addition to contact information, this plug-in also allows you to list upcoming events and remind people to invite you.

Now that you know how to add social media to WordPress, you should have no problem getting your content syndicated. However, make sure that your content is unique and engaging for maximum results. Although WordPress offers several different plug-ins and templates for various purposes, these are often the most effective. With these plug-ins and themes, you can ensure that your content reaches the masses. No matter which social network or plug-in you decide to use, you can guarantee that your web presence will be exponentially increased by using WordPress.
