Inserts broken image links
By , for WP 3.8.1

Don't use this plug-in unless you know how to fix it yourself. It (at least in some configurations) inserts broken images inside hidden divs inside your page, which is very bad, and since it seems to be unmaintained, don't expect a fix.

Kaboom
By , for WP 3.8

The screen shots looked great but after installation there is no access to a control panel. Their website is a 404!? Looks like we're abandoned. Bye bye...

"Blew up" the blog
By , for WP 3.6.1

Needs fixed for this version of WP. It put gibberish on my blog posts and the posts vanished. My blog would also not load. I removed the plugin and the problem was fixed.

Where is the Pinterest option?
By ,

The description states "including Pinterest icon". 2 months ago someone posted in the forum that they couldn't find how to configure it, 10 other people responded but the developer has not addressed it yet.

Used to be OK, now full of bugs!
By , for WP 3.5.1

I used to rely on this plugin because of its easy installation and usage. Unfortunately, it has now degraded to such a degree that I had to uninstall it.

Apart from the validation errors that it causes and that have been known for over a year, it creates empty menu entries in the admin panel and spreads malware. It is obvious that those issues won't be addressed any time soon.

Bloated & broken
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin is too large and despite frequent updates keeps missing a wide range of fixes involving G+, pinterest and others just to mention a few.

A quick glance at the support list shows that the same items keep cropping up again and again. There is a serious need for quality control and optimisation so that it doesn't slow down your site.

sociable.css doesn't validate for CSS3 http://wordpress.org/support/topic/sociablecss-doesnt-validate-for-css3?replies=2 is one of the more annoying ones

Bad experience
By ,

The plugin is bloated and added empty menu items. The "complete uninstall" feaure seems not working. Developers seems not care about the quality of the software. Bad experience for me.

doesn't work at all
By , for WP 3.4.2

I used to have this plugin on another website that I quit some time ago. Everything worked fine.
Now I installed this version on a new page and it doesn't work at all. There's only a foreign language available which I can't recognize, it's all about "FUente" or something like that although I wanted to install the classic sociable, the settings are nowhere to be found and it totally messes with the wordpress menu on the left.
