WordPress Social Media Plugin – How To Install (Step By Step Tutorial)

Learn How to Create a Blog with WordPress Using the Humix theme (this is the theme in the video and this tutorial is definitely comprehensive):

In this video tutorial, I demonstrate step by step exactly how to install a WordPress social media plugin called social media feather.

You will learn how to easily integrate your social media pages like Facebook, twitter, Google Plus, YouTube, LinkedIn, and more with your WordPress website. This plugin comes with social media icons that can display as a widget in any widgetized area of your WordPress website.

Also, this plugin is light-weight which means it won’t cause your pages to load slowly. This plugin also has great reviews so it should be compatible with most WordPress themes.

This is a great way to grow your blog through your existing readers as it enables them to easily share your blog post content with their followers!

The plugin has two main features:

1) Social Sharing – you can choose to enable the social sharing functionality of the plugin at the end of every blog post so that users can click on the social media platform of their choice and share a URL of your content with their own followers. The URL is generated automatically which is a great feature of the plugin.

2) Social Following – you can easily build up your own social following through the different social media platforms by choosing which social media icons you want to appear in your sidebar or any widgetized part of your site. You can easily link your social media pages to these icons so that when users click on the icons that are on display as a widget, they will be directed to your social media pages.

  1. Josh you are a diamond – I am incredibly new to WordPress and was very nervous – you explained so clearly and made this so easy!… I am keeping you top of my list for “go-to” which I am sure will be regular! See you soon 🙂

  2. Excellent Josh! Thank you so much for this. I do have one question though. After following along with the video, my Pinterest button under Share This: is not the correct icon. It is showing the pin it box and not the P. How may I be able to fix that? The Icon for the follow us is fine. Thank you, Suzette

    What if I need to add more icons in “follow” widget, the icons which are not in the list by default? How would I do it?

  17. Thanks for this tutorial, but I am confused. I followed the steps to do sharing after my posts, but it is not working. When I click on share button for Facebiij at end of my post, it is going to my facebook page like the follow button. Any ideas on what I did incorrectly? I am following exactly what you said.
