Fanciest Author Box for WordPress

With more and more conversation around social signals and building out your authority network, having author information that links to, and includes, all your social media activity is becoming more and more important with every passing day.

Not only does it give you great social signals, but it provides visitors the opportunity to learn more about you and interact with your social media accounts like Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

We have seen a number of different implementation attempts for including this information into posts, but have really been unhappy with them all until we came across Fanciest Author Box, which is by far the best integration of your social media activity and accounts into your posts.

On top of the great implementation of all your social activity and information, we happen to know this developer quite well and they have always put out super clean and light weight plugins, keeping load time, SEO, and functionality in mind.

We have implemented the plugin on this site, so you can see it in action below, but here are some screenshots of how it looks when implemented:
