TweetMeme is a great way to use social proof on your blog. It shows how many people re-tweeted your post.


Sexy Bookmarks
In my opinion, the best way to get people to share your posts on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Digg and 35 other social networking and social bookmarking sites.


Add to Any
A great way to allow people to subscribe to your blog via email or RSS.


This is one of the most popular WP plugins out there. It allows your readers to share your content via email, Facebook, Twitter and social bookmarking sites. Its functionalities overlap with those of Sexy Bookmarks but I don’t see why you can’t have both, as some people might prefer one over the other. Another alternative is Sociable. They all do the same thing; it’s just a matter of which one looks better and is more intuitive to use (and I think Sexy Bookmarks wins those two battles).


DandyID Services
I absolutely love this plugin. It places a box in the sidebar with links to all your social media profiles (YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and 330 more). There’s no better way to get followers. Just enter your used IDs for each social network and DandyID Services does the rest. Social Profilr is a nice alternative that only supports the 14 biggest networks (which should be more than enough for most people) and it also allows you to put a personalized message for each network, such as “Follow Me on Twitter!” and “Check Out My Crazy YouTube Videos”.


I don’t know what I’d do without Seriously, they’ve saved me hundreds of hours this year. This is about the coolest service ever. sends updates to all your social networks at once so you don’t have to do it one at a time. PingPressFM integrates with your blog so every time you add a new post it updates Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and over 50 other social networks. It couldn’t be any cooler.


LifeStream is a great way to show your blog readers your activity in social media sites. It shows what you tweeted, what you posted to Facebook, the videos you uploaded to YouTube, the pages your bookmarked on Delicious and a lot more.


Interactive Video Plugin
This plugin goes beyond video embedding. You can record your videos on the fly, upload them or import them. It even allows you to edit your videos. If you do a lot of vblogging (video blogging), this plugin is a must.


Meet Your Commenters
Every time someone posts a comment to your blog, this plugin searches through the social networks so you can follow your commenters on Twitter, friend them on Facebook, connect on LinkedIn, etc.
