    Just installed 4.2.3 -- supposed to support pinterest, but that doesn't appear the Sociable options. I do see it among the skyscraper options. Is it only available for skyscraper?

    Sociable Classic (on-page share buttons) doesn't have pinterest yet while Sociable Skyscraper (floating share widget) does.

    Hi buddies, our next release on Monday will include Pinterest in our Sociable Classic version too. We┬┤ve released it on Sociable Skyscraper to test usability and getting your feedback.

    Many thanks for your comments. Much appreciated,

    [ Signature moderated. ]

    It's been a week and a half since the release date that "sociable" indicated and there still is no Pinterest button on Classic. There have been two updates during that time, but neither included Pinterest. Is this something you actually intend to add or should those of us that need Pinterest look to a different plugin?

    I'm still wondering the same thing - still no Pinterest button. Is there an ETA that we can expect? Thanks in advance!

    I was going to use this plugin because it looks good, but I see it has no Pinterest support and that is vital these days. Pinterest is now second to Facebook. You can't ignore a power like that.

    What's the deal with this, folks? Skyscraper is not ideal to use with my layout - when can we anticipate Pinterest for Classic?

    Get a clue, Sociable. I need Classic not Skyscraper, need Pinterest, and rather than hacking your plugin, being out of time and patience, have gone over to Shareaholic. /May/ check back on this later, but probably not. How hard would it be to add it to Classic considering you already have added it to Skyscraper?? Fnyeh to that.

    (Yeah, I know it's a "free" plugin and all that; still, it's your brand. You'd think you'd be paying attention.)

    Totally agree with strangeshe, we need the pinterest. In order to keep your business growing, better to listen to your customers and give some response. I am thinking to switch to other plugin if they still ignoring our voices. We've been wait so long for this.

    Dear Sociable,

    It's now been a month since my last post. I understand that Sociable is a free plugin, but I honestly have no interest in using or buying any app from your company because of your extraordinary lack of customer service. You would have received high customer service marks if you had simply said that Pinterest for Classic was a feature that you were not yet offering and that you had no ETA as to when you would be offering it. Instead, you promised to offer it and you even gave a specific date for when it would be available. That date was over a month ago and you still haven't delivered. Even worse, as comment after comment has been made, you've refused to acknowledge your mistake and respond to the people who have come to depend on your plugin.

    I will find a new plugin to use for my social marketing needs and I will go out of my way to warn people to not use any of the plugins you offer (regardless of whether they are paid or not) because of your complete lack of customer service.

    If you're as irritated by Sociable's silence as I am, please list the alternatives that you have found and spread the word about Sociable's lack of customer service.

    I just dumped Sociable, too. After a couple years of using it. I went with Sharing is Caring, based on the recommendations above. Took about 10 minutes to switch out and configure. Pinterest is surging in popularity, and you just have to move a little bit faster, Sociable. Like I need to explain that to the (seemingly) web-savvy. Peace!

    Had the same issue. Ended up using the WP Socializer plugin instead. Its very developer friendly and the social buttons output style is almost identical to classic sociable.

    Re: Pinterest in Sociable

    Yup, been waiting for an answer on this as well, but have waited long enough. Moving on to some of the other suggestions noted above...and perhaps to developers who are more responsive to their community.

    I'm sure it won't be too long before the "Sociable Sucks" or "Sociable Support Sucks" blog posts start to emerge. Nice going guys.

    Lame.
