Share counts

const {

All share count components take in only one mandatory prop: url, which is the URL you are sharing. className prop is optional.


<FacebookShareCount url={shareUrl} />

If you want to render anything else but the count, you can provide a function as a child element that takes in shareCount as an argument and returns an element:

<FacebookShareCount url={shareUrl}>
  {shareCount => (
    <span className="myShareCountWrapper">{shareCount}</span>


const FacebookIcon = generateShareIcon('facebook');
const TwitterIcon = generateShareIcon('twitter');
const TelegramIcon = generateShareIcon('telegram');
const WhatsappIcon = generateShareIcon('whatsapp');
const GooglePlusIcon = generateShareIcon('google');
const LinkedinIcon = generateShareIcon('linkedin');
const PinterestIcon = generateShareIcon('pinterest');
const VKIcon = generateShareIcon('vk');
