Nobody would deny the great impact the social media has on promoting one’s business, increasing website traffic, creating valuable backlinks, and getting referral customers. But rushing in the world of 1000+ social bookmarking sites alone is rather hasty – just imagine how much time you’ll need to register with at least 15 most popular services and post links there at least once a day.
With the Sociable extension this whole mess becomes easy and well-organized. Once having this Magento module configured, you get a perfect solution for bookmarking your products and store pages. The Sociable add-on allows your site visitors to share any page of your Magento store on any social networking site.
Moreover, with the Sociable extension you can always track which products and how many times have been bookmarked. Thus the clicks statistics allows you to correct your marketing strategy in time if something goes in the wrong direction.
The secret of the Sociable add-on is simple – the more people bookmark your Magento store, the higher rank it has in search engines, and the higher conversion rate you finally gain. Let your visitors promote your site on the web for you!

I was using add this extension before using this, but it turns out this extension is better as you can customize buttons.
This extension can nicely integrated with Aheadworks iphone template as well
- Searching for an easy way to integrate social media buttons without them placing cookies I found this great extension. Easy to install and manage. Excellent customer service.
- Installed on Magento 1.5, no problems, easy to configure and manage. Reccommended.
It does exactly what it says, you can even add new social links if they don't have it, or customize the current ones with new snippets. It's very well built and works like a charm. Through some custom coding you can get the social icons to show up wherever you want on the site aside from using the pre-defined areas.
- I purchased this plugin for my Magento v. 1.5 Store. It installed without any problems and works perfectly so far, design is clean and managing social bookmarks is easy. Good product.
- We simply add the script we got from Sina, QQ, even Jia this, work perfect!!!
