You see that green button to the right with “TWEET” in it, and the one for f Share. Sure you see those, right there at the top of this post and every post.
I HATE THOSE THINGS! Why?
Because they get in the road of a well formatted blog post. Take for instance, the post I did yesterday on Updating your site. You can barely read the text on the image, But I can’t make it bigger because of the Social Media buttons. If I do make it bigger it throws the whole post formatting out of whack. (Yes whack is a technical CSS3 term)
SM Buttons should never take a priority over your content.
What do I suggest? Glad you asked.
Right now my favorite colorful solution is Sexybookmarks.
They add color, and more than just a single SM way to share.
- It appears after the post content and doesn’t interfere with the post formatting.
- And the thing I like best, when I setup the options for sexybookmarks I turn on the do-follow tag.
- So my links get followed from where ever anyone shares.
Try sexybookmarks, it is a win/win.
