Looking around for good social sharing plugins, not feeling like diving into functions.php for the moment on my Genesis framework child theme and this plugin did exactly what it is designed to do without increasing the load on my site.

Thanks.

Non-blocking rocks!

I tried several other popular social media plugins before this one. All were slow, some of them horribly slow. This one does not slow down my page loads at all. This is the only way to go unless your site has a lot of excess CPU.

That said, I'd like to have to option to use the buttons or not for each post/page.

Brilliant and Fast
By , for WP 3.5.1

Works brilliantly, saved 3 seconds off my load time, which was 4 seconds and took nearly 200 queries off my DTB compared to the existing plugin I was using.

Only thing I would like to see is a stumble button, maybe even pocket, but I get a lot of traffic from stumble, but this plugin is worth the loss of button.

So Fast

With this plugin activated, my websites still load very quickly.

Plus, it can be positioned manually with the php that's under "FAQ."

Could be perfect (but not yet)
By , for WP 3.5

I tried many social sharing plugins, and got tired of the loading time. This plugin is very quick to load visually (it might just take longer for the counters to show up), so it's so much better than most of the other plugins in my opinion.
The only two problems I have are these :
- The Facebook counter is displaying shares, not likes. That's a big difference...
- You can't choose not to display the social links on the homepage, search results, archives, etc. from within the plugin. You have to do it manually for the time being.
For these reasons, I stopped using the plugin for now, and I can't put more than 3 stars. But if these get fixed, this plugin might very well deserve a 5.
