customShareCounts is a simple, flexible jQuery social sharing plugin which generates social links with total share counts to share your posts (or any URLs) on popular social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and Linkedin.

How to use it:

1. Put jQuery library and the jQuery customShareCounts.js plugin at the bottom of your html page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="customShareCounts.min.js"></script>

2. Define the social share information for your post using HTML5 data attributes as follows:

<div class="share-items" 
     data-title="Custom Share Links" 
     data-hash="Custom Share Links" 
     data-url="URL To Share">
     Post Content Goes Here
     <a class="share-url" href="URL To Share">Read More...</a>
</div>

3. Add a list of social share links to the post.

<ul class="share-links">
  <li>
    <a class="twitterBtn" data-dir="left" href="" >
      <span>Twitter</span>
      <span class="twitter-count"></span>
    </a>
  </li>
  <li>
    <a class="facebookBtn" href="">
      <span>Facebook</span>
      <span class="facebook-count"></span>
      </a>
  </li>
  <li>
    <a class="linkedinBtn" href="">
      <span>LinkedIn</span>
      <span class="linkedin-count"></span>
      </a>
  </li>
  <li>
    <a class="googleBtn" href="">
      <span>Google</span>
      <span class="google-count"></span>
      </a>
  </li>
  <li>
  <span>Total</span>
  <span class="total-count"></span>
  </li>
</ul>

4. Initialize the plugin and specify the social networks you want to enable. It Twitter is enabled, you have to sign up for a free Opensharecount account in order to get the Twitter share counts & totals

$('.share-items').customShareCount({
  twitter: true,
  facebook: true,
  linkedin: true,
  google: true,
});

5. More configuration options.

$('.share-items').customShareCount({

  twitter: true,
  facebook: true,
  linkedin: true,
  google: true,

  // Your Twitter username
  twitterUsername: '',

  // Shows the counts on buttons
  showCounts: false,

  // Shows the total of all the shares
  showTotal: true

});
