Fix Social Sharing PHP Process

We currently have a social sharing script running on our site which allows visitors to share our content on facebook, twitter and google plus. However, the script is overloading our server (facebook share count specifically) as per the hosting provider. The developer of the script has implemented a session close loop for facebook which was believed to be causing the issue but the issue has re-emerged. After speaking to our hosting provider, they told us that the facebook sharing php script is causing a large number of connections to come from a facebook related ip. We need this fixed as soon as possible. Here is the current php script below:


class shareCount {

private $url,$timeout;

function __construct($url,$timeout=10) {




function get_tweets() {

$json_string = $this->file_get_contents_curl('[url removed, login to view]' . $this->url);

$json = json_decode($json_string, true);

return isset($json['count'])?intval($json['count']):0;


function get_fb() {

$json_string = $this->file_get_contents_curl('[url removed, login to view]'.$this->url);

$json = json_decode($json_string, true);

return isset($json[0]['total_count'])?intval($json[0]['total_count']):0;


function get_plusones() {

$curl = curl_init();

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, "[url removed, login to view]");

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, true);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, '[{"method":"[url removed, login to view]","id":"p","params":{"nolog":true,"id":"'.rawurldecode($this->url).'","source":"widget","userId":"@viewer","groupId":"@self"},"jsonrpc":"2.0","key":"p","apiVersion":"v1"}]');

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Content-type: application/json'));

$curl_results = curl_exec ($curl);

curl_close ($curl);

$json = json_decode($curl_results, true);

return isset($json[0]['result']['metadata']['globalCounts']['count'])?intval( $json[0]['result']['metadata']['globalCounts']['count'] ):0;


function get_pinterest() {

$return_data = $this->file_get_contents_curl('[url removed, login to view]'.$this->url);

$json_string = preg_replace('/^receiveCount\((.*)\)$/', "\\1", $return_data);

$json = json_decode($json_string, true);

return isset($json['count'])?intval($json['count']):0;


private function file_get_contents_curl($url){


curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);


curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FAILONERROR, 1);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, $this->timeout);

$cont = curl_exec($ch);





return $cont;

Hi From the code that appears , i find you need to use elite proxies/socks to connect to facebook via CURL. This will fix the problem. Thanks Ken
