LinksAlpha – Share links on twitter and facebook

LinksAlpha lets users retweet, share and like pages from any site to their Twitter followers and Facebook friends with just one click. The user experience is similar to Facebook Like button but expanded to Twitter and Facebook Share as well. The plugin is available for WordPress and TypePad users. Non-platform users can also avail this functionality by getting the iframe code here.

One of the additional advantages of the plugin is that the UI loads in iframe so it doesn’t delay loading of webpages once plugin has been integrated.

Quickie

  • 1-click Retweet
  • 1-click Facebook Share
  • 1-click Facebook Like
  • Displays counts next to the buttons
  • Offers consistent UI: aligned buttons and uniform color selection
  • Gives visual indication after the blog post is Retweeted/Shared/Liked

Twitter Fans lets you display your twitter followers in the sidebar as a widget just like Facebook’s fan widget in appearance. That’s what’s why we call it “Twitter Fans Widget”.

There are other plugins that let you display your twitter followers but they ask for your twitter password. While this plugin will just take username. Also it lets you change border, background, and color of the widget.
