This Plugin Goes DOWN:

Too many problems:


Too greedy for links.

Version 1.2.3 - "AD" button without optout - WT....?

"That update didn't fix anything. In fact, it made it worse. Now the Pinterest count doesn't even show when hovered over. Not to mention we have to deal with that lousy new purple AD button."

Totally Agree

I recommend Digg Digg

It was SO cool, but now NOT so cool
By , for WP 3.5.2

2 Days ago I was ready to sing the praises of Flare - looks cool, shares well, no glitches, nicest sharing tool I have used. I recently switched from Digg Digg. THEN yesterday I did an update, and voila - my neat little row of sharing buttons has been invaded by a purple "ad" button which I (and many other people complaining on the forum and support page here) can't remove! What's Up guys - please tell me how to remove this or I will be forced to delete the plugin and go elsewhere. BUT tell me how to remove it and I will delete this, write a 5 start review and be back as a happy advocate ready to tell everyone about your plugin!

Weird new ad placement
By , for WP 3.5.2

Recent update adds another follow icon to your posts that looks exactly like the twitter logo except its purple. Its advertising for some random company I know nothing about and the mouse over on it looks sloppy and unprofessional.

I deleted the 1.2.3 version of this plugin and reinstalled the 1.2.2 until I can find something else.
