    To the developers:

    Firstly, I love your plugin! Thanks for constantly updating and improving it - probably more so than any other WordPress plugin developers out there.

    I was wondering if you have any plans to add counters so that people can see how many times the post has been tweeted, shared on Facebook, voted up on reddit, etc?

    It seems like most of the blogs are offering this feature to their share icons these days, and I was hoping you guys might integrate this feature sometime soon.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks for your kind words and feedback. :)

    Counters are indeed on the roadmap, and it's one feature in particular that we want to get right. Do you prefer the official Facebook & Twitter counters, or would you prefer counters that are more uniform in design and work across all services?

    The official ones are nice, though I'm not certain that I personally can distinguish the difference between those and the other ones you mention.

    I'd probably only use the counter option on share icons that I believed would get some increments (twitter, facebook, reddit, digg, etc). My blog is at a point where I don't get heavy commenting activity, but I have a google plugin that shows me that my pages do get tweeted a great deal. And I know from reddit, that my posts routinely gets tons of reddit votes.

    It would be cool for letting my readers see that the site isn't as quiet as it sometimes appears. :)

    Thanks again.
