AddThis cookies cause SLOW page loads
By , for WP 3.8.1

Tried a test on webpagetest.org because I got complaints that new WordPress site was running VERY slow. Seeing b.scorecardresearch.com and ds.reson8.com were causing load times to be 3x slower.

AddThis appears to know about these "cookies" (malware) and yet they still haven’t done anything to remove it: http://support.addthis.com/customer/portal/questions/3037805-scorecard-research

I should note that, once I removed the AddThis plugin, the above "cookies" disappeared and my page load time was MUCH faster.

Cannot rate higher than one star. Disappointed.

Easy to configure, plenty of options

Enough customization options and still easy to configure, thank you!

Good plugin from global service but very few settings
By , for WP 3.8.1

Decided to use this plugin because it is provided by AddThis service. Statistics is the great advantage.

At the same time this plugin has very poor settings:

- Rather complicated procedure of choosing your own set of buttons
- You can choose design of buttons, but many buttons are available only in 1-2 designs and blocked in others
- You can't choose different design for different buttons placement, even sizes
- You can't even align buttons block other than left

Plugin authors should work on "many small features" to make it more customizable.

Lost all likes 3 times after updates
By , for WP 3.8

After the latest WP update we lost all our likes AGAIN on our WP WooCommerce website, this is now the third time! We will now look for a more stable social plugin.

You can't uninstall it
By , for WP 3.8

Addthis acts like a virus to your site you cannot remove it!!!. ALSO DONT add it to your browser! It installs useless smilies that conflict with every single text field you might want to write in!!!!

Beware
By ,

Once it is installed it seems impossible to remove it and the support staff, reading any earlier questions regarding same, is completely unhelpful.

Buggy plugin, slows page speed
By , for WP 3.7.1

The features provided by addthis are great, but this plugin is buggy (settings don't save) and loads slowly.
