How to enable share counts (total and network)

Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Buffer, Reddit, Tumblr, VK, and Yummly are the networks that currently support being able to query and display share counts. You can enable two different types of share counts in Novashare: total count and individual network share counts.

If your share counts aren’t showing up, make sure you have read or doc on how to configure share counts.

How to enable total share count

Total share count is the number of all your individual share counts combined. This shows up at the bottom or end of your share buttons depending on how you configure it.
