Hello Kelly,

To show total shares from social networks on your site, the first you need to get numbers of shares on each social like Facebook, Google+, Twitter..etc.

Twitter

GET URL:
Code:
http://cdn.api.twitter.com/1/urls/count.json?url=https://www.webmastersun.com
Returns:
Code:
{
    "count":254,
    "url":"https://www.webmastersun.com/"
}
Facebook

GET URL:
Code:
http://graph.facebook.com/?id=https://www.webmastersun.com
Returns:
Code:
{
   "id": "https://www.webmastersun.com",
   "shares": 56
}
LinkedIn

GET URL:
Code:
http://www.linkedin.com/countserv/count/share?url=https://www.webmastersun.com&format=json
Returns:
Code:
{"count":23,"fCnt":"23","fCntPlusOne":"24","url":"http:\/\/www.webmastersun.com"}
Google Plus

POST URL:
Code:
https://clients6.google.com/rpc?key=YOUR_API_KEY
POST body:
Code:
[{
    "method":"pos.plusones.get",
    "id":"p",
    "params":{
        "nolog":true,
        "id":"https://www.webmastersun.com/",
        "source":"widget",
        "userId":"@viewer",
        "groupId":"@self"
        },
    "jsonrpc":"2.0",
    "key":"p",
    "apiVersion":"v1"
}]
Returns:
Code:
[{
    "result": { 
        "kind": "pos#plusones", 
        "id": "https://www.webmastersun.com/", 
        "isSetByViewer": false, 
        "metadata": {
            "type": "URL", 
            "globalCounts": {
                "count": 2204
            }
        }
    } ,
    "id": "p"
}]
StumbledUpon

GET URL:
Code:
http://www.stumbleupon.com/services/1.01/badge.getinfo?url=https://www.webmastersun.com
Result:
Code:
{"result":{"url":"http:\/\/www.webmastersun.com\/","in_index":true,"publicid":"1Ya7Va","views":"1","title":"Webmaster Forum, SEO & Internet Marketing Forums","thumbnail":"http:\/\/cdn.stumble-upon.com\/mthumb\/401\/138742401.jpg","thumbnail_b":"http:\/\/cdn.stumble-upon.com\/bthumb\/401\/138742401.jpg","submit_link":"http:\/\/www.stumbleupon.com\/submit\/?url=http:\/\/www.webmastersun.com\/","badge_link":"http:\/\/www.stumbleupon.com\/badge\/?url=http:\/\/www.webmastersun.com\/","info_link":"http:\/\/www.stumbleupon.com\/url\/www.webmastersun.com\/"},"timestamp":1395115711,"success":true}
After that, you need to get the result to show on your webpage by PHP, javascript or some thing else.

I suggest you should use tools via Google to check for fast and easy way.

Hope it helps!

You are welcome!, It's only an explanation for number of shares that we can get from social networks. I can say that to get number of shares then having more ways to do that.
