  1. I think you have to be careful with these kinds of themes and how they’re used. You don’t want to use them in the same context as the original sites that inspire them as they get no credibility. They have a use but it must be in a different context.

  2. I’m obsessed with WordPress now. I’ve been thinking about trying out the whole social network themes just to give myself a taste but haven’t yet. Thanks for the ideas though.

  3. This is amazing. I love Techcrunch Theme. It will be the next theme on my next blog which I am planning to create on next week.

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Cool Collection! Truly indeed you picked the bet of the best social media inspired by WP themes. Well, we use Facebook and Digg very often since they come free of charge and used almost by everyone. Mashable and P2 are rule of a thumb as well…very reliable when you are aiming real time exposure.

  5. really nice themes I am considering starting a blog on my site for ranking purposes, I will probable end up using one of these themes as they will go well with my site and why not use a UI theme that everyone will recognise and be familiar with – thanks

  6. I think these are one of the best social media inspired themes that I have seen. I definitely like their structure and the way they are related to the different social media.

  7. Hey, I download techcrunch theme, but unfortunately it has some errors. I don’t know how to fix those errors since I don’t have an idea on php. It says some errors on function. php on some lines. :(

    1. Hey Sajith, maybe you need to go to http://www.comptalks.com/comppress-theme-a-clean-professional-theme/ to ask for this theme support.

  9. The Facebook theme looks really nice as well as the others. Personally, I’ve only tried the Techcrunch theme which worked pretty good for my blog.

  10. Even this all social sites look more better in wordpress theme.. I will download this all wordpress theme and apply it one by one on my wordpress blog.

  11. I’m liking that one that looks like Google+. By the looks of the image, you can make the site a lot easier in terms of navigation, and the users can get to see most of the good content above the fold.

  12. In my opinion, it’s nice also to have that lookalike theme but I’m more interested in designs that are not common but have very interested designs. On other hand, when it comes to popular theme just like this there are also advantages. The user-friendly theme can be a quick learning for any viewer which is a good thing because they can easily access your site without being lost in your site. They familiarize with the environment of the theme as your site. That’s the good thing and thanks for sharing by the way I can use it in the near future.

  13. These themes seem trendy because of the social media effect of it. My favorite among them is the facebook theme not because I’m a facebook addict but it’s seems like easy to use because it’s very common and it’s very familiar to everyone which is also a good thing for having a new site. Also, all themes look nice and easy to recognize. Thanks for sharing your list to us.

  14. LOL, I really love the Mashable theme. Sky Blue is my favorite color. :D I’ll try to test these themes on my blogs and wait for my friends and readers reacton.

  15. Theme is a plus in a website or a blog. It is also interesting when you accompany it with famous or trendy things. Just like these themes, from popular social media. Most of them are very popular, and you can adapt this popularity to your new site. The only thing I want to recommend is that when using a theme like this you also need to have a uniqueness factor. Just like some new feature within the site that differs from the original site so that it will be likable.

  16. This is the best collection of wordpress themes i seen based on social media sites…there is no alternative for this Post…I will Visit again For Downloading that Mashable Theme…

  17. This is why I love wordpress because there are always wonderful, wide range of blog themes you can choose on.. Love it. Thanks themes developers… Kudos!
