VK.COM, also known as Vkontakte, is an important russian social network, which has over 270 million users. It’s available in 70 languages and it’s the most important social service for russian speaking people. The VK social network has some features very similar to Facebook, an has Like buttons. Now the like buttons of VK social can be tracked inside my Top Social Stories Plugin, this guarantee a social metric to easy measure VK shares.

With this update there are also some new types of charts to view data, multilanguage support (now available only in Italian and English, if you want to help me in the translation I will give you a free copy of the plugin), email alerts to notify authors when their posts reach a specific level of social interactions and -last but not least- a few optimizations for your database if you have a very high-traffic site.

You can also read the complete documentation of the plugin here.

You can buy the plugin for 18$ here.
