Reviews

Does not work properly

On self hosted, issues: counters do not show because of faulty CSS, problem with the icon set provided, problems with interfacing the Twitter API. Gave up after testing Facebook and Twitter, too many problems.

Issues and no response from the plugin author

The Counter only shows up for Google Account.

I tried contacting to the plugin author a month ago but still no response.

So I uninstalled the plugin and installed another one. And that is working very charmly.
