Social Pop! Widget
An open-source social sharing widget.
I've never been a fan of AddThis due to privacy concerns, so I use a locally-hosted, hand-crafted social sharing widget. Feel free to do so as well. Get it here.
What are the benefits? There are performance and privacy benefits derived from using a locally hosted social sharing widget. Plus, all it takes is one simple snippet of code to embed into your website:
Here it is in use:
----- CUSTOMIZE ----- 1. You can choose which icons to show; use their abbreviations (tw|fb|gp|li), seperated w/ the 'pipe' symbol ( | ) 2. You can set window dimensions below; height (h) and width (w), defaulted to 626x436 3. Feel free to delete any comments for performance benefits (minimal file-size savings) ----- CREDIT ----- -This widget is built upon Compartir v0.04. Kudos to the team on the excellent work. -I've never used AddThis, as I've always suspected privacy & security issues. -This is also the main reason why I'm extending your work! ----- UPCOMING ----- in v0.2 -- I'll add base64 encoded icons to reduce http requests, as well as more social sharing sources.
