SocialBox is a premium WordPres widget available from Code Canyon.net and developed by JonasDoebertin. It provides a widget that can show your subscriber count on four different social networks: FaceBook, Twitter, YouTube, and FeedBurner. It also displays “subscribe” links for each network.
From the author:
With SocialBox you get an absolutely easy to use WordPress Plugin which enables you to add a sleek social widget to your WordPress site or blog. It displays the current numbers of Facebook likes, Twitter followers and YouTube Channel and Feedburner Feed subscriptions. You can enter default values which will be shown if the related API is not reachable.
I picked the plugin up a few days ago (you can see it in the sidebar) and was immediately impressed with its quality. While the task it performs is relatively simple, and there are numerous free plugins that can do more or less the same, SocialBox definitely stands above the crowd with it’s high quality. The widget works perfectly, is clear and easy to use, and provides a nice addition to any WordPress site.
After installing the widget, I took the liberty of opening the PHP file and looking at the code base and was very pleasantly surprised to see how well the plugin was written. JonasDoebertin built the widget using good, solid, up-to-standard OOP code and even included caching for network subscribers count, helping to ensure the plugin takes very few resources.
If you’re looking for a new social widget, I highly recommend this one.
