This is a fork of WP Selected Text Sharer which hasn’t been maintained for a few years.
Allows you to share/search selected text from your site – select a snippet, search for it or share it to popular social networks. A small popup is displayed above the selected text which contains links to share/search selected text.
When a user selects a text snippet in a page or post of your site, a popup is displayed. When that quote is tweeted (or shared in another social network), the selected Quote and the link to that blog post is also shared in the following network. Hence increasing site visibility.
Search engines (Your site’s search / Google adsense search / Yahoo search etc …) can also be added to the popup.
Apart from sharing texts only, this plugin also acts like a social bookmarking button.
