Flare is a simple yet eye-catching social sharing bar that gets you followed and lets your content get shared via posts, pages, and media types.
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.
Love this plugin. You can have a transparent background, use the colors that work best for your site. One of my social media friends loves it has the Twitter share feature "via @yourname" so the writer is credited.
I found this plugin when I was searching for a DiggDigg replacement which I thought was not particularly attractive and updates getting behind.
Only downside, needs more social networks added (Instagram and MySpace).
I've used a LOT of plug and play social sharing plugins in the past. This one is my new default. I've gone from 1-click Share/Retweet, to Digg Digg, to Flare. The only real feature it's lacking is easy to add share features to insert via shortcodes or PHP snippets. That's not a deal breaker though, because it's an easy enough thing to figure out on your own.
Such a great plugin. I have spent the last couple hours looking for a nicely designed share plugin for the sidebar of my website. I installed Flare and what do you know..Exactly what I wanted. Thank you very much!
I have been using the Flare social sharing plugin for a few weeks at 8-Bit Nerds and I think it is the best social sharing plugin I have used. I even wrote a review on it. Thank you for developing a plugin that looks great and works great and is now ad free! :-)
i installed it on my site http://www.jovora.com but the like buttons are not synchronized when i click on them. Floating is not working for me but i checked this on many sites all are working fine but for mine its not can any one tell me which is the stable version for this one.
I'd pay for this plugin because its coded extremely well and highly flexible.
Also like Slide Deck and have written a post about how to install it in any header position, in any theme.
I sure is very sleek and impressive. Wish I could have it as a floating tab on either side. Then again, who knows, maybe in future that would be available.
