Now let us start discussing the features of the Monarch plugin. This particular plug-in basically works just like a floating social bar. This social bar drapes down at the left side of your Facebook page. On this bar you can select any of the networks which you want to use. This includes the network option of Facebook for sure. It also displays the options of other social channels as well.
These include Twitter, Pinterest, VK, Buffer, Tumblr, and many other channels as well. With so many networks available on the list you can choose any network which you prefer the most. Here I suggest you to choose the most preferred options. Do not go after selecting too many options. I am saying this because there is not a lot of space where you can display all these network options. All these options will not appear at the same time. So it is better that you must chose 1 or 2 options from the total list so that they can be displayed properly.
