Shareaholic announced that in addition to share counts for its social media share buttons, it now offers the option to display a total share count.

All share buttons powered by the service will now automatically give you he option to showcase the number of total shares, and you can customize it.

"In addition to choosing where you want the total share counter to appear, you can also personalize what you want to call your shares (ex. 'Shares', 'Likes', 'Favorites'), and customize the background and font color to match your site’s design perfectly. All for free," says Shareaholic's Cameron Seher.

To set it up, log in to your Shareaholic account, go to the Website dashboard, click the settings button, and click the toggle for "Total Share Counts". From there, you'll get the options to customize the color of the background and text and the label.

If regular share counts are turned off, the Total Share Counts settings will not display.
