Install and configure the plugin
Unzip the archive and upload the “socializer” folder inside the plugins folder of your blog, or use the auto-setup from inside your WordPress blog.

You have also the option to show or hide the Count of sharing icons appearing immediately on your pages, in case you don’t want your visitors to see how many times a page or post is shared, or if you just prefer a smaller version of the social group of icons.
