Social Media is the bread and butter of online presence.

In today’s internet, social media has become a pillar of online presence, as it is undeniably one of the best ways to share your content with the ever growing audience of the world wide web. By integrating social bookmarking and sharing buttons, you will let your readers quickly share your blog posts on their favorite social networking sites. This will help you to drive more traffic from social media sites and it helps to improve your search engine ranking (SEO).

You may already know the advantages of social media sharing for SEO, and how important it is for every blogger or web person to add social media sharing buttons to their site from day one. There are many WordPress social media plugins which will let you do that, and in this article is a compiled list of some of the best plugins you can use to build your online presence through social media.

Keep in mind that with web design, as discussed in the blog on choosing a color scheme, less is more. Simplicity is a key tool in communication, and this goes for social media integration as well. We’ll start with the basics.
