There are lots of social bookmarking plugins available for WordPress but you don’t need all of them, you need only one that works on your site and not all. Below are Top 5 social bookmarking plugins for WordPress.
1. Add to Any Share/Save/Bookmark Button
This plugin has every functionality that you can ask for. It loads fast, supports over 100 sharing and bookmark options including +1 from Google. You can select it where to display the sharing options such as page, posts and rss and also customize it further from the settings page.
This is another great plugin with nice customizable looks and sharing options. This plugin has a good feature where it tracks the number of clicks over these sharing options and displays you with a report, where it shows how your posts are shared by users.
Automatically add links to your favorite social bookmarking sites on your posts, pages and in your RSS feed. You can choose from 99 different social bookmarking sites.
4. Digg Digg
Shows counts and sharing options for popular social butons like Digg, LinkedIn, Reddit, dDone, Twitter, TweetMeme, Topsy, Yahoo Buzz, facebook share, facebook like, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Sphinn, Google Buzz, Designbump, WebBlend, BlogEngage and Serpd. The one specialty of this plugin is that they move as you move your page up and down.
5. I Love Social Bookmarking
Shows few social bookmarking options namely Blinklist, Bloglines, Blogmarks, Digg, del.icio.us, Facebook, Furl, Ma.gnolia, NewsVine, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Technorati with cool and attractive icons.
Conclusion – Choosing one of the above five is not a difficult task, be clear in your mind what you need. We would choose Digg Digg, if we need a cool looking plugin that hovers as you browse your page. The downside is that it doesn’t necessarily loads fast and doesn’t give you all the options.
If you really want to cover all aspects of sharing, you can go for “Add to Any Share/Save/Bookmark Button” as it supports Google +1 and comes with over 100 sharing options. Remember to choose less options to put on view as giving too many options may distract users.
Try to go for a minimum number of sharing options which include Facebook like, Google + and twitter shares.
