If you have a business to run, being active on social media isn’t a choice anymore. You need social media to put yourself out there coz that’s where your audience is. There’s an increasing need to connect all the social media platforms with your website. Integrating social media with your website not only helps in an improved user experience, but you’re also making it easier for users to share your content within their networks. Drupal, as usual, offers plenty of options to make your site more social. Improved collaboration between your Drupal site’s users means better engagement of visitors with your site.
Social Media Integration Modules 

In this article, we have curated a list of the top 11 social media integration modules in Drupal 9 (also compatible with Drupal 8) ordered by their popularity.

The Social media share module also enables you to modify or disable the services from the config page. It can be added as a field in entity and leverage the field API.

Shariff Social Media Buttons Module

The Shariff social media buttons module for Drupal integrates with the Shariff social media buttons library to offer a safe way to add social sharing buttons on a Drupal website. We call it safe because, unlike other social sharing widgets, this module does not leak user’s personal data. Also because it does not inject iframes or call external Javascript. Once downloaded, it implements the Javascript library and you can display the buttons as a block or field.

It is highly customizable where you can configure which buttons you want to display, the button sizes, number of rows to display, prefix a text (follow/share) that resizes automatically, and more.

This popular module lets users register themselves and login to a Drupal website via their Google account. The module adds a login path to google (user/login/google) which then redirects users to login to Google.

It is based on the Social API that blends authentication with external services – in this case – Social Auth google.
