I'm downgrading my rating
By , for WP 3.7.1

Three questions (one pretty major), no response in several months.

Don't use this plugin. It doesn't function correctly and there's no support anywhere (despite saying you can request help through their website)

plugin messes up meta data
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin was great, but now it messes up my meta data for social sharing and is harmful for SEO.

So far so good
By , for WP 3.5.2

I saw this on Jon Loomer's site and thought I'd give it a try. So far the only negative is that it is difficult to style the positioning of the vertical bar (I'd like to move it a little to the left).

Automatic Delete
By , for WP 3.5.2

I have tried the older version of this in past, and deleted it. Then I read some reviews of the ones praising it. So I guessed on trying it again. What a mistake. I put in on pages, and above content it only showed two icons and were not click-able. I went to blog posts to check it out and I lost my posts. Posts just disappeared completely gone. What the crap. That is when I went to installed plugins and deleted it. If they have a Pro version. I do not see how it could be any better than this. If the free version is this bad, I would not want to try the Pro version at all.

looks and works great

Really useful plugin. And with the new version 1.2.4 all critical reviews seem moot.

I have some issues with the offset of the floating sidebar as well, but I'm confident that this will be addressed in a future version.

BTW, if it hadn't been for the "ad", I wouldn't have found the plugin so I'm happy it was there.

Not bad, not bad at all!!
By , for WP 3.5.2

I was getting depressed looking for a decent social share plugin with floating left option that didn't require membership or all kinds of up-sells. Then through all the dreck comes Flare. Quick-loading, straight-forward setup, and no attempts to datamine. THANK YOU!! Five stars if you add the option to change the name "3 Flares" to "3 Shares".

UPDATE: Okay, after using this plugin for a few hours, I realized it's doing something to add spacing left + right that activates horizontal scrolling, even when the window is super-wide. (Windows FireFox) So until that's addressed I have to reluctantly use another plugin...

Love the plugin. After searching and trying a lot of plugins, this one stands out for Social Sharing.

Great plugin

Overall, a great plugin - 5 stars because they said they're removing the forced ad in the next update. I only wish it had options to adjust the offset of the floating sidebar.

The only aesthetically pleasing share plugin there is :)
