Really fast and simple

The plugin has started to make an impression. I disabled my earlier jetpack social buttons and installed this one and it also affected my load speed in a positive way being the lightest so far.

It's already on my blog!

Normally I don't drop in plugins shortly after they first come out. But knowing these two guys, I went for it and love it. Especially like the "lightweight" aspect. Cheers!

Fast Minimalistic and Unobtrusive
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin is the best social sharing plugin currently on WordPress.org...unlike Digg Digg, Sharebar and Jetpack which are very heavy on the resources and block the actual page load, Floating Social bar uses Socialite.js to load the plugins whenever they are required.

Believe me i have used various techniques of loading social media plugins...like asynchronous loading, jquery technique to delay and load, sharrre jquery plugin but never figured out how to make it work.

i had also tried using the socialite plugin but it never integrated with my site perfectly. finally wpbeginner is out with this plugin, which loads the resources only when the user is actually interested in sharing the post!!

don't even think, just got for it!! :D

Light-weight and Fast - Gets it Done
By , for WP 3.5.2

This is the answer to having mainstream social sharing on your site. The problem with the 'mega' sharing plugins is that they are heavy, and slow your site. Floating Social Bar is very light-weight and loads very fast. It makes sense, since one of the developers is Thomas Griffin :)

Great job and I will be using it often.

Fantastic Social Media Plugin
By ,

The plugins is pure awesome and fantastic alternative to other solutions such as ShareBar & Digg Digg. Excited to try it out on WPKube :).

Would love to see an option to manually insert the social buttons.

Great work, Syed.

Best Social Media Plugin
By ,

This is hands down, the best social media plugin for WordPress. What would be even more awesome is if they added more social sharing buttons/services such as Stumble upn, Email This and etc.
