WordPress Social Media Feather is a super lightweight free social media WordPress plugin that allows you to quickly and painlessly add social sharing and following features to all your posts, pages and custom post types.

The primary goal behind this WordPress social media plugin is to provide very lightweight WordPress social sharing and following that doesn’t add any unnecessary burden to your site and especially on your users.

What sets WordPress Social Media Feather plugin aside from the plethora of other social sharing and following WordPress social media plugins is its focus on simplicity, performance and unobtrusive impact.

In order to achieve this this WordPress social media plugin makes no use of JavaScript and as a consequence it’s really fast while still providing all the social media functionality you might need.

The WordPress social media sharing offered by the plugin includes all major social sharing providers like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, reddit, Pinterest, tumblr, Linkedin and even e-mail.

It will show social buttons that your users can click to share to facebook or tweet your posts and pages on your site or submit it to reddit and google plus and all other social sharing networks.

The WordPress social media following offered by the plugin includes all major social network providers and tools like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Linkedin, YouTube, tumblr, instagram, flickr, foursquare, vimeo or RSS.

The plugin also offers widgets for sharing and following buttons that you can place in any widgetized area in your site. Social sharing and following widgets also expose some settings to tweak appearance.
