How do you do this Growth Hack?

The most common type of antisocial evidence is the low number of social shares. To get rid of this problem, there are two things you can do:

  • Remove the option By Partage of your home page, unless you have more than 500 shares on social networks.
For social proof to work properly, it needs to present important numbers (i.e. more than 500 shares on social networks or more). If your home page does not have at least +500 shares, completely deactivate the counter on the share buttons on your pages.
  • Open your Social9 dashboard to access your Social Sharing Widget
  • Go in the Widget Setup and click on Counters
  • From the dropdown list, select Individual & total
  • In the field Minimum Share Count, indicate the number minimum total shares: 500
  • Once you've added this display rule, now press Update Widget
  • The share buttons will then show the number of shares of the content if it is above this minimum number.

You come from ban antisocial proof from your website

TIP: Only embed the script on the pages where you want the content to be shared. This will reduce the number of scripts loaded on pages that are not essential to this Sharing function.

Whether it's Social9 or any other script like that. This is a “non-essential” script: that is, a social sharing function is not essential for displaying your page.
