Why should I use React & Share?

Bloggers tell us that while their traffic numbers look good, people comment and share their posts less than before. One-click reactions - similar to Facebook - are a fun way to activate your readers and get more social media shares.

People react up to 30 times more than they comment!

Is it free?

Yes, absolutely!

Can people share their reactions on social media?

Yes. Your readers can share your post with their reactions using the WhatsApp share. We're working on adding the reactions with Facebook and Twitter shares as well.

Can I use different style smiley sets?

Not yet :( But we're adding new styles soon.

Can I use short code?


Does it work on multisites?


Does it work with my theme?

We've tested the plugin on various themes. Currently, React & Share Reaction Buttons look best on light backgrounds.

Which browsers are supported?

All recent browsers are supported. Internet Explorer is supported from version IE9 onwards. We're constantly testing various device & browser combos. Drop us a line at if you find devices or browsers that don't yet work properly.

I don't want the Twitter/Facebook/WhatsApp/Pinterest share button on my blog. Can I turn it off?

Yes! You can choose which social media share buttons are shown to your readers.

The reaction buttons are visible on every page, can I choose on which posts/pages they are shown?


My reactions don't show when I reload the page. What's up?

Some WordPress installation cache the reactions for a while. Your reactions are saved and will show in a couple of minutes usually.
