When I wrote my earlier post on best social media sharing WordPress plugin, I realized there are few more plugins which need to be on the list. Especially I couldn’t find many options for floating social sharing buttons and one of the most popular plugin till now is Digg-Digg.
Here at ShoutMeLoud I use SumoMe plugin to show floating social sharing buttons both on desktop & mobile.
