How to Recover Social Share Counts with Social Snap!
We understand more than anyone how important share counts can mean to your site. As you attract new visitors to your site, showcasing your share counts can show trust in your content and encourage them to share as well.
With that said, there’s a lot of change with Google Chrome labeling sites ‘non-secure’ if they don’t have an SSL. If you’re moving your site or blog from http to https you will quickly find all of your share counts are missing. In short, this move by Google is a good thing. It’s a big step to creating a more secure web for everyone. Additionally, it’s nice to see hosting companies and other products including free SSL’s to further the cause.

Share counts create the trust for your site visitors. Especially if you’ve had a lot of shares on your content.

It’s natural for people to want to be a part of something that’s trending or popular.
