A Smarter Safer Social Sharing Plugin
What It Does
Our smart social sharing widget allows users to share your content across four popular social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google +. It also includes an email share function for your socially disinclined peers. The widget will also display how many shares there have been for each network on your website page.
Social sharing helps your content reach a wider audience and plays an integral part in many search engine ranking algorithms.
Our widget comes in two styles, as a small horizontal share bar and a scrolling sidebar. Both are visible on this page. The horizontal share bar employs html and css, while the scrolling sidebar requires a small jQuery script.
Why We Like It
There are many social sharing widgets and plugins around the internet, and while ours doesn't add anything new in terms of functionality, you won't find another that puts your security and privacy first.
Our social sharing widget has been pared down to the basics. It does not contain additional tracking scripts or superfluous design options. It's small, simple and lightweight.
Many social sharing widgets come packaged up as plugins, ours however, is meant to be added directly to your code, limiting the potential risk for vulnerabilities arising while keeping the widget and its content transparent.
Note: While our widget provides a higher level of security than alternatives it's functionality still relies on third-party APIs from Linkedin and Google. If a vulnerability is exposed in their API, it will be present in this widget as well. In addition, we took the iFrame implementation for "Facebook" "Twitter" as this implementation isolates third-party content. We have customized the "Like" and "Tweet" button's behavior using query string parameters.
