Easy Social Share Buttons come equipped with a great variety of display positions. Some of them are all-purpose and have no specifics of use and display. But others have specifics that you need to know before choosing the display that will work best for your online marketing goals.
Post Vertical Float is one of these display positions that do not fit any post or page. It is developed specially for a single blog post and it is not a good idea to use it for other pages.
The specific of Post Vertical Float is that display social share buttons just next to the content. It is sticky to the content and moves while scrolling so that the buttons are always visible for the user.
Differences between Post Vertical Float and Sidebar display?
Very often our users do not make any difference between these two display methods. The main one is the place where the buttons are attached. For the Post Float as we said it is the page content that they stick to. But Sidebar is always attached at the edge of the screen.

Useful features and advantages
One of the most fabulous and useful features of Post Vertical Float is that it can be set after what percentage of page preview to display and hide. This is really a great little trick to take users attention. As you know our eyes always intuitively detect movable objects. So choose the right part of the content to remind the user that share feature is available on your post.
You can also controll offset from the content horizontally and vertically. Or choose custom top position of Post Float Bar when loaded. With these options you can prevent Float Bar to overlap the featured image of the content of the post.
On Mobile Devices
Post Vertical bar is not useful for mobiles as there is not enough space next to the content where to display. So when you use Post Verticle Float on a desktop for mobile need to set separate mobile based position or use static display position (Content top, Content bottom or Content top and bottom).
