Starbox is the Author Box for Humans.
You need it because it gets your Wordpress site an author box that's just beautiful to look at, it makes your Authors shine and enables Google Authorship for all of them.
Humans look at beauty more than anything else (as you most probably already know, men and women alike). That's why you'll get an Author Box that's gorgeous to look at and it makes your readers click all the way through to see more about the Authors.
Now, if you have just yourself as an Author on your site, or a super-star team of Authors, you'll love Starbox, because you can choose from the professionaly built themes and landscaping. If you are the super-star type, or want to boost social proof, place your Author Box on top of the page, so that your Human readers will know that they're reading stuff that a real awesome person has written.
The Social Profiles of your writers will be obvious and clickable, getting you Humans that will engage with content on your blog and also on your social media streams.
Because your authors are stars or will be very soon, Google Authorship and Facebook Authorship are here for them with Starbox, and it's just type->click->boom! to set up. Amazingly easy.
