Go-Viral is easy to use, very clean and modern looking and has alot of great features you won’t find in other social sharing plugins. I was happy to se the options panel not overloaded with options I’d never use but just enough for what I needed it for. A floating share bar, views count, share count, Google analytics, content locker are just some of the useful features you’ll find it has in a nicely laid out options panel. It also comes with a bump shares and bump counts feature which is great for anyone that’s just starting their website and doesn’t have much traffic yet. After trying out several other top social share plugins I decided to keep go-viral.
