Want a social sharing tool that keeps count of all your shares? Social Warfare does just that. Likewise, Social Warfare shows the share count by each of the social networks you choose and a total share count for each post or page.
You can customize how these share counts look. To demonstrate, you can see this plugin in action on Inspire to Thrive.
Not only does it do share counts but it includes a fun click to tweet tool with it! You can pick from various designs to include the click to tweets in your blog posts.
Another great feature of this plugin is the Pinterest application. You can customize your Pinterest images for Pinterest with this plugin in one easy step.
