jquery.social.js is a lightweight jQuery plugin used for generating custom social links to share your html content specified in the HTML5 meta & open graph tags. Supported services: Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Linkedin, Pinterest and Reddit.

How to use it:

1. In this case, we're going to use Font Awesome 4 for social icons.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="font-awesome.min.css">

2. Turn your web pages into graph objects using Open Graph protocol markups as shown below:

<meta property="fb:app_id" content="YOUR_APP_ID" /> 
<meta property="og:site_name" content="Social Share"/>
<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
<meta property="og:url" content="https://www.jqueryscript.net/" /> 
<meta property="og:title" content="Social Share" /> 
<meta property="og:description" content="Social Share Plugin with jQuery"/>
<meta property="og:image" content="" />
...

3. Create an empty container for the social share links.

<div class="social-share"></div>

4. Load jQuery library and the jquery.social.js script at the bottom of the web page.

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

5. Call the function on the DIV container you just created and done.

$(".social-share").social();

6. Configuration options available.

$(".social-share").social({
  "fbAppID" : "YOUR_APP_ID",
  "url"     : "URL",
  "title"   : "TITLE",
  "desc"    : "DESCRIPTION",
  "image"   : "IMAGE_PATH"
});
