Nice (integrated into the images) Social Sharing tool
By , for WP 3.9.1

I had been long looking for an sharing tool that sits integrated in the images - for a cleaner and less obtrusive look and SlingPic worked out really well.

Great, except one important thing
By , for WP 3.9

Awesome plugin, however it voilates wordpress plugin guidelines:

http://wordpress.org/plugins/about/guidelines/
10. The plugin must not embed external links on the public site (like a "powered by" link) without explicitly asking the user's permission. Any such options in the plugin must default to NOT show the link.

Hopefully will be fixed in the next version.

Works just fine so far
By , for WP 3.8.1

Works as described and have had no problems so far.

It would be nice if there was a way it would work on images that are presented in "slideshows" and would also be nice if it included Google+, especially since this is an image based plugin. One other thing. Maybe make the icons smaller or give a size option but that's minor and personal. But...it's free and appreciated.

I did see a comment by jmilez.

So went digging into the code and found references to affec.tv which is an advertising site. I think that violates wordpress policy, no?

I did not see any reply from the developer. Any word on this?

Thanks for the plugin!

Thought it was the coolest thing ever until I found some hidden ads
By , for WP 3.8.1

Was having problems getting SlingPic to show on images after changing the post type and couldn't get the "dontshow" tag to work. So went digging into the code and found references to affec.tv which is an advertising site. I think that violates wordpress policy, no? I've decided not to use it because also had issues with their cdn slowing down my site at times. To good to be true... :(

it could have been great
By , for WP 3.7.1

good idea. minimal, compact and customizable.
but it affects the responsiveness of my images so I had to disable it.

There's good and bad
By ,

I had been looking for a great over-image share button for a while, knowing how important Tumbler and Twitter are for a good media blog, and this seemed like the best when it comes to the design and the options there are to change position and which services are shown, but there are some significant negatives.

The best things about this include the three color options, the selection of services you can show with the button, the assigning of it to images based on size (you'll need this to prevent it appearing on the small images for themes which show a smaller tease image etc).

But there is one major flaw with this plugin, it doesn't record any statistics of sharing, and resets the share indicator on page reload. If I share an image on Twitter and Tumblr, it indicates this on the icon and presumably (in theory) is supposed to show others how many times an image has been shared and where, but when you refresh the page that is all reset to zero.

For those interested in knowing where content is being shared (for SEO purposes and so on) it's quite useless. This should be a core feature of the plugin, but it fails.

I'll keep using it, because I am seeing an increase in traffic thanks to people sharing content and this is the best plugin for this I have found so far, but I just wish I had an idea of what people were sharing, how many times content had been shared, and where. And I really wish this was shown on the button for others to encourage them to share it too.
