Great Plugin... when it works /
By , for WP 3.9

This plugin works great on some of the pages of my sites.

However, there are Javascript errors appearing with the plugin, and I can't figure out where they are coming from.

The support for this plugin is non-existent. 0/9 threads have been resolved in the last month. I posted my error last week, and no one has responded.

I'm in the market for finding another one ASAP.

Everything I expect from a social network sharing plugin !
By , for WP 3.8

Rating 5/5 for the features, but unwillingness about connection to the server http://www.hupso.com/
- After testing the major plug-in social network share buttons,
I found this one which is exactly what I was looking.
- It is easy to implement and allows the choice of the French language for buttons.
- You do not need to open any account to use it.

- What you need to know, disadvantage (excerpt text from readme.txt) :
Javascript is required for sharing buttons to function properly and it must be enabled. Counters load javascript code from Twitter, Facebook, Google, Linkedin, Pinterest or from other social services that are selected. Interface for share buttons is loaded from our servers via javascript at run-time. This enables us to add minor enhancements and fix browser bugs the moment they are discovered without forcing you to upgrade the plugin all the time. Some button images are loaded from your local WordPress installation and some from our servers.
-> See about that, the good explained response of the author

- I finally abandoned all plugin social sharing buttons.
I use to Pages, "pinboard_social_bookmarks" function already implemented for items in wordpress theme pinboard.

- Note : I had changed the following CSS in the WordPress Theme so that the window button "Like" appears on the footer :
#footer-area {
position: static; /* instead of relative */
}

Calling home
By , for WP 3.8

As others mentioned before, the plugin redirects through its own website.

As said by others, there's no reason for this plugin to call home

Best Share Buttons Plugin Out There
By , for WP 3.6

Have been using this plugin for a long time and despite some of the negative comments about the call to home this is still the best share plugin out there.

Looks great on the website and works perfectly. The author is really supportive too and actively works to resolve all issues unlike many who just do not even bother to respond. Have to agree with mattrock1 "No 3rd-party subscriptions required, with lots of settings and configuration options". Setting up social sharing comes with many issues and having tried and tested many of the other WP social share plugins really believe you cannot get a better plugin than this.

Danger, Caution advised!
By , for WP 3.7.1

This plugin hosed my Facebook Publisher plugin and it adds a link to its own web page on each one of my posts. If I wanted something to add links back to itself against my will I would just go out and get a virus. I uninstalled the plugin and my Facebook plugin is still broken. Do not even try it, you will be sorry you did!

Thought working . . . and really wasn't
By ,

I am so embarrassed. Insisted that I had share buttons because I could see them. Others said I didn't. I finally logged out of my WordPress and checked that way. I then went to another browser. Then I found out, there were NO icons on my home page. I liked this plugin but this plugin gave me unrealistic hope.

Calling home and hidden links
By , for WP 3.7.1

There is absolutely zero reason this plugin should be calling home, it inserts hidden links on all pages it is used.

FAQ mentions NOTHING about the hidden "call to home"

FAQ mentions NOTHING about the hidden "call to home". Not cool at all.
Removed and deleted for good.
