As much as we hate them, social sharing buttons are necessary to make it easy for visitors to share our content with their friends and professional networks. But as web developers, we have to be weary of the slow down that sharing buttons bring. Every button that you include in your page loads its own set of scripts and stylesheets which make your pages slower to load.

This is why today we are releasing a cool new jQuery plugin that adds social sharing buttons to your site without slowing it down. It is easy to use, powered by CSS3, mobile friendly and fully customizable.

How it works

All social networks support so called “sharer pages”, which are special URLs that allow people to share directly to the social network.  These URLs can be opened in a new page or in a popup window, and they are loaded only when they are needed, which speeds things up.

The plugin has support for these networks:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Google+
  • Tumblr
  • Pinterest

It is easy to add support for more social networks by editing the source code of the plugin.
