It works but... (3 posts)

    Surely, the KISS principle is not alive and well. As far as I can see, the plugin works flawlessly. The problem is it makes the user jump through too many hoops to use it.

    First, they have to click on the graphic.
    Second, they have to look for the network they want to choose.
    Third, if it isn't visible, they have to click on another button to see more choices.
    Fourth, finally, they can like or tweet.

    How many people are likely to go through that?

    I really wanted to like it.

    I'm sorry you don't like it, and I'm sure you will find a plugin that suits your needs better. However, your review is not accurate.

    To "like or tweet" you don't need for steps, as you say - it is just a click away.

    The same is true for Google Plus, Reddit, Email recommendation, translation, and several top social networks.

    Another (a second) click is needed only for a group of less known networks that only a few people use.

    Even in this case, a second click is better that what I've seen in other socializing plugins, where one is forced to scroll huge lists of networks in order to locate the one he searches for.

    Since version 8.0 Socializer loads immediately in a blog's pages the top social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus), letting for a second click only secondary networks, this way achieving a greater balance, still saving bandwidth for a site, speed for visitors, convenience for all...
