Google+ Removing (Web) Share Counts: What You Need To Know

Google+ recently announced that they'll be removing Share Counts (aka +1 Counts) from their web Sharing Buttons (the ones that appear on 3rd Party websites), joining Twitter, which did the same in 2015.

In the following Post for +Social Warfare, I discuss what this means and how this might affect bloggers, businesses, and others; what we are Warfare Plugins will being doing (if anything) about this; and Share some insights and quotes from some of Google+'s top Influencers and Evangelists about this update.

I need to start using some more of these advanced features! Good stuff! Great video +Nicholas Cardot +Jason T. Wiser +Dustin W. Stout!!!
Can we explain why Social Warfare is the best social sharing plugin for WordPress in under 2 minutes and with less than 275 words? It sure wasn't easy ... but we did it: (http://wfa.re/2tHG8t4)

It's a fact, social media shares can drive tons of traffic to your site ... but, it only works if those shares are highly engaging.

The problem is ... without the right tools, you have no control over how people share your content.

So, if someone shares your epic post on Twitter and it looks like this (okay, you are going to have to watch the video to see what #THIS looks like!), not a single person will engage or click through.

Wouldn't it be great to have full control over how your content is shared on social media?

Meet: Social Warfare Pro. The most beautiful, powerful and effective social sharing plugin for WordPress. Social Warfare not only looks gorgeous, but it's also the fastest social sharing plugin on the market.

After installing Social Warfare Pro on your WordPress site, you'll get access to limitless customization options over the look and feel of your social sharing buttons.

And, using the built-in custom sharing options panel, you'll get full control over how other people share your content on social media.

★ click to tweet quotes to boost Twitter shares
★ custom Pinterest images to skyrocket your Pinterest traffic
★ popular posts widget

This little boy needs a name! What do you think? Comment on the original post please :D
One of our readers just got a new #puppy... He's so new he still has a tag on him!

Just kidding! That's the tag on his new bed. He is an 11-week old #pitbull with #NoName yet.

We think this little guy needs a name! His #petparents are looking for suggestions. What do you think his name should be?

This little guy is so adorable and we hope he doesn't have to deal with the typical stereotypes that often surround Pit Bulls. In fact, according to +Petfinder, the MYTH that Pit Bulls are all inherently vicious is just not true. Each dog should be evaluated on their own merits, not by their breed. A corollary truth is that there truly are no bad dogs, only bad people who raise bad dogs. Unless a Pit Bull has been poorly bred or purposefully trained to attack humans, they generally love people. They are, in fact, one of the most loving, loyal, friendly and dedicated companions you can have. (http://gplnk.us/2hbJWwg)

Since we know the new owners of this cute little pup, we can hopefully convince them to share photos with us throughout his life... so we can share them with you as well.

But, first things first, he needs a name! Please post your suggestions in the comments below.

Hey USA Peeps
I'm working on a little project and I need to crowdsource a little help. If you would like to help, just let me know if you attend a restaurant week in your town (or in any town), what the name of it is (or what town - i can look it up), and your 2-3 sentence review of it. I will be quoting you if you comment.

Thanks in advance!!!

Good cause.
Building a New House For Santa

Where I live, this man walks the streets daily with a Santa hat or a Dr Suess hat on, headphones in, just bebopping all over the place.

This is Harry Buie, he has lived in that house behind him for 59yrs, he was literally born inside the home. It is falling apart and the Town determined it was uninhabitable.

We need approximately $50k to build him a 1br/1ba cottage to finish out his days in. Any and all donations matter tremendously.

Thanks in advance, and if you can't give, please at least share :-)

The math just isn't working out for me on why 11,000 Olympiads need 450,000 condoms....

Let's assume all 11,000 of them will be there for 20 days and don't have sex with each other (in which case they would only need one per couple) and that they have sex twice per day. That's 11,000x20x2.

So why did they stock 10,000 extra condoms??????
