How to add social media icons on wordpress – Tweet, Like, Plus One


So you have your site up and going and a few articles posted to it and now you are looking to add those awesome little Tweet, Share, Like icons. The best version of this in my opinion is definitely one that has the built in counter so you can see how many likes or tweets you have on any given post or page.

I am talking about these little social media icons below…

 The next step

There are many plugins available and you can click Plugins on the left menu then simply search Social Media and a bunch will pop up but how do you know with one to use right?








This is not a complicated thing. Basically you want it to look clean and simple and if it looks this way it will also function this way which is exactly what you and your readers need. Something you certainly do NOT want to do is clutter your site down with a lot of bloated plugins so try to not add too many as this can possibly slow your load times down. Your website loading faster will improve user experience and the search engines actually recognize this in their ranking system.

Which specific Social Media Plugin am I using?

If you like the one I use then I can reccomend it for sure because it has been great for me. It is called Tweet, Like, Plusone and Share as you can see below. The easiest way to find it is to just search “Tweet Like” in the add Plugin search bar BUT make sure to get the one on the right as it is the one referred to in this article and has much better ratings.

  1. Hi, I followed the instructions and installed the plugin, I’ve also activated yet I don’t see the social media plugin when I visit my site. What am I doing wrong?

    • Hi Eve and thank you for checking out my post. For me all I had to do was install and activate and it went live immediately once I visited my own site it was already up and running naturally. The only thing I can think of is to maybe delete the plugin. Make sure wordpress is fully updated and then do the process over again. If that doesn’t work I would probably ask for help within the Wealthy Affiliate Community but like I said there was really only a couple steps to getting it up and running so it might be a version compatibility problem. Take care and let me know how it goes.
