Social media sharing is a vital part of driving more traffic to our blog. We do various stuff such as adding social sharing buttons, encouraging users to share the content at the end of article & many of us also use click to tweet to give tweetable quotes. Along with these, we also follow some of the tips mentioned here & here to make our content more shareable.

Especially if you use one liner, quotes or have a ton of text in your blog, this plugin could be useful for you. This is one simple plug & play plugin & I would show you what it does & how it might be useful for your blog.

That’s the only function of this plugin, but it’s powerful. At times as a reader, we want to share a content by selecting custom text from an article & this plugin enables it for WordPress blog. This is one feature which you would see in all social media sharing tools such as buffer extension to give you an example.
Quoty comes with minimum configuration & once you have downloaded & activated the plugin (official download link). Go to Settings > Quoty settings & configure the plugin. At the time of writing, this plugin supports Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest & LinkedIn.
