    I've installed and activated this plugin but I get a fatal error when I try to visit my site.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in C:\wamp\www\wp-content\plugins\floating-social-bar\class-floating-social-bar.php on line 709

    Only added my twitter handle.

    This plugin will not work on local server environment if you don't have curl enabled (which most local servers do not). Please enable curl on your localserver.

    Because Google+ doesn't have a real API, we have to use curl to get the Google+ share counts. Most live servers have curl enabled, but local servers such as WAMP choose to disable it by default.

    I have made this change and I no longer get a fatal error but the bar doesn't appear. While I set my site up I am using twenty twelve then I'll be making changes to my own CSS. Is there something else I have to do to get it to work?

    You do have to go in the settings and drag-drop the services bar. Also you have to check which post types you want the bar to be added in. Look at the installation video.
