What Social Networks are tracked?
We provide share buttons for more than 30 social networks and instant messaging apps, which includes Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Pinterest, etc. We track shares and traffic from all of those networks and more. A full list of supported networks can be found in the documentation file “Supported Networks”.
Do these tools work for mobile devices?
Yes! You’ll have access to tools made specifically for mobile devices like the Mobile Share Bar and the Mobile Follow Bar. These tools only appear on Mobile devices while all the others only appear on Desktops. The pop-ups and Welcome/Subscriber bars are responsive and will adapt themselves to different screen sizes.
Is this software useful for me?
Yes, if you want to differentiate your business by providing insightful articles to your prospective customers, drive traffic to your website, and have a strong presence on social network. GetSocial is an essential software to generate more shares, traffic, and sales through these channels and understand what is really working for you.
True or False: Changing the share buttons will make the pages lose the social shares?
Short answer: No.
Long answer: The counters from almost all social share buttons fetch the share count from the social networks themselves. Example: For the page www.socialtools.com, the counters are going to ask Facebook how many social interactions this link had on the platform. Then, it’s going to repeat the process for all other networks and display the correct number.
As such, all social buttons should show a very similar number of shares.
