Social2s (Social in 2 steps) is a Joomla! plugin to share your web pages within the most popular social networks: twitter, facebook, pinterest, linkedin, google+, tumblr and VK.
There are a lots of Joomla! plugins that do that. So, why Social 2s is special?
Social as fast as light
Social2s is focused on be fast. Really fast.
Social buttons have a lot of scripts. Even if you load it asynchronously, your webpage suffers a download time to loading it. Social2s doesn't load those files if is not required.
Furthermore, it uses Bootstrap, FontAwesome and JQuery resources, preloaded from Joomla core or required by many extensions, so it is highly probable that your webpage doesn't need to reload those scripts again.
We have been very careful with details: social2s is html5 w3c fully compatible.
Tons of customizations
Every webpage is different. With Social 2s you can customize every aspects of your social buttons: colours, shapes, positions, define what social network you want to show...
With the PRO version you get extra customizations and features. You can define the styles of social buttons in category view (blog), use the modern css features, fixed position...
You can even to choose the default image to share with facebook (if your article hasn't one). We built an Opengraph system to assign functionalities to your webpage: supporting virtuemart, description, images... It's a great thing to improve your SEO.
Tiny great features
Social2s can be triggered before or after contents, but, what if we want to display social2s in another place? Injection makes the magic. You only have to define where you want to display the buttons (via class) and the plugin will do the rest.
Another tiny great feature is CTA (Call to Action). The best way to get social impact is invite to your user to spread your contents. When the page is about to end CTA displays an awesome box to claim the attention.
