The FaceBook Like Locker pro WordPress plugin allows you to hide specific content on your WordPress site from displaying to users until they have either liked the content on facebook or shared it to Twitter, Google+ etc. When used in combination with for example a free WordPress theme download link this can be a very effective way indeed to give a significant boost to your social media sharing strategy, Your basically turning a social share action into currency getting the user to pay for the theme by sharing it socially before being allowed to download it.
This particular technique of what I call “social currency” will not suit everyone especially if overdone by locking too much content on your site. You need to find a fine balance of easily accessible content and locked content, ideally the best usage in my opinion is that of locking freebie download links as the user usually does not mind sharing to get a free theme, plugin or design files. Lock every second article, tutorial and other pages on your site though and you will simply drive people away.
