Adding social tracking to Google Analytics plugin for Joomla

A few months ago Google announced the introduction of social share tracking in Google Analytics. In a world where social sharing has become an excellent way to allow website visitors to share content with the rest of the world, we were thrilled to see this development being introduced in Google Analytics. Today Google announced that Sharethis and AddtoAny buttons are automatically tracked in Google Analytics and Addthis social share buttons only require a few lines of additional code to show up in your Google Analytics reports.

That's why we added new functionalities to our Google Analytics PRO plugin: social share tracking of Addthis and Facebook Like button tracking. All of these social shares will now automatically show up in your report after enabling this functionality in the backend of your plugin.

This simple update of our PRO plugin makes it even easier to measure the impact of your social media buttons.
