When I set "Include the like button-set just above the post?" to "YES" only the Facebook Like Counter shows at the top of the post. It was then making the entire first paragraph of my post a link. The Facebook send, Google + and Twitter buttons were not appearing at all.
Did not seem to effect the icons at the bottom of the post however.
I just disabled this setting and my post paragraph went back to being plain text. Looks like this is a bug that needs to be addressed.
