Jetpack’s sharing buttons look good, are simple, and offer 4 different display options:
- Icon + Text
- Official Buttons
If you choose one of the 3 first button types, Jetpack automatically adds sharing counts for the most popular Social Networks.
This is great, but what if you don’t want to make extra requests to external services for each post that you publish on your site? Luckily, Jetpack allows you to remove the sharing counts with a simple filter:
add_filter( 'jetpack_sharing_counts', '__return_false' );
Your sharing buttons won’t include any count anymore, but you will have saved a few resources on your site!
