Wp Social Review: A website that isn’t set up with social media is like a smartphone with only one bar: it works, but don’t expect much contact with the outside world. On the other hand, getting your WordPress site connected with social media typically involves clunky plugins and integrations that don’t mesh.

Plus, Wp Social offers customizable templates to give your admin login layouts extra appeal. The social share feature lets people take your content to their platforms. Visitors can post directly to 15 social platforms like Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter with only a few clicks.
