4. Tweet Old Post – Publish your articles on Twitter

If you are a lazy blogger, then this plugin is for you. This plugin automatically publish your articles to Twitter. At first it seems that there is happiness, but imagine if you put a step in the publication of 1:00, and if the articles on the blog not so much is to exhaust the new plug-in will publish articles repeating the article. This is not good, neither for your twitter followers nor for search engines like Google. So be careful in using this plugin. (link)

5. Facebook Like Thumbnail

Standard Like button from Facebook. As you know Facebook is a huge hit with bloggers, especially dealing with web development and promotion of the network. We advise you to install it on your blog button to connect to Facebook. (link).


  1. Good selection of plugins. Personally I find that with sharing plugins less is more – tried SexyBookmarks but ended up disabling so many (to make it easier to read and improve page load speed) there seemed no point having such a full featured plugin.

    I don’t like scrolling/floating toolbars as I find them distracting so ended up using the ‘Tweet, Like, Google+1 and Share’ plugin (Twitter, FB Like, Google +1, Linkedin and FB Share, but customizable) which is light, does the job and is easily positioned where you want it.
