slowing down pagespeed worthless
This is a very interesting plugin, and very useful to me. Great job.

There are a lot of things about Jetpack I love. The sharing options, the Facebook like box, the different commenting options, these are great. But the Twitter widget needs a fix, and badly.
When I first installed Jetpack yesterday and saw the Twitter widget wasn't responding, I hit the web for some answers. I found other Jetpack users saying they had the exact same problem, and some of these comments were well over a year old. After all this time and still no fix? That's ridiculous.
Too many things in one plugin. Stats are the best
I noticed that a lot of WP sites I visit use now the Jetpack "subscribe to comments" module. As you need to confirm EACH TIME your subscription with clicking on a link sent by mail, it's just boring. Imagine this feature in Facebook...
The plugin work greats and provides loads of features that most novice users would enjoy having on their blog (although there are plenty of plugins that will accomplish the same things). In addition, the stats feature is quite amazing.
My one (huge) problem with Jetpack? It requires a connection to WordPress.com. While this does not really bother me with things like Stats, it renders other things (like subscriptions) useless for those that want to keep users on the main blog.
Once Jetpack implements the option to use not WordPress.com for other things, I will give it a better rating.
The idea for the extensions are nice, but the actual use is terrible!
The ideas for some of the stuff is nice, it's implementation is terrible though. I mean, really, it should not automatically expect us to want some of the shit features, and the things that SHOULD be automatically set, aren't.
This plugin alone is responsible for more +28% of my page loading time = slowing down pagespeed considerably!
(And I even use very few of the functions available.)
I've seen people claim you can't disable unwanted features. It is possible to deactivate unwanted modules. For those of you who don't know how to do this, just click on the Learn More button on each module card and the Configure button next to it will become a Deactivate button.
As always there's room for improvement (mainly minor stuff) but I'll list the biggest improvements I feel could be made:
1. When I first activate the plugin, several modules are enabled by default. I've just spent a couple of minutes disabling modules that I didn't need. It would be better if all modules were disabled by default. But the features offered easily outweigh the small amount of time spent configuring.
2. Another thing I'd like to see is two sections. One for active modules and the other for inactive modules. Or, allow the modules to be draggable so I can arrange them to my liking.
It contents all what I need
