    Hey Thomas,

    Thanks for leaving the review. Are you suggesting that by adding this plugin and removing the original social share buttons on your site increased your site load time?

    I’d be interested in seeing the results because on every single instance we have run this test, we have found opposite results. We tested this plugin on our sites for over a year before launching it in public.


    I just did a new test.

    For the moment, I am using a share this system : no plugin, just core code from share this…

    With that system, this page has a 1,58 seconds time to load.

    Putting you plugin (easy to use, and nice !), it goes up to 1,83 seconds.


    please fin the report

    For the moment, i’ll just keep my system.

    Keep up the good work !

    Kind regards,

    Thomas Ka

    You can’t use our plugin in combination with other share plugins and expect the speed to go down. The purpose of this plugin is to be used independently and replace the other ones.

    From your report, I see you have both AddThis and ShareThis loading on top of our plugin.

    Also just loaded your site right now without our plugin, and it is loading 1.81s – 2.5s range

    I’d suggest trying loading the site in the same datacenters at Pingdom to see more accurate results. Because when you compare performance over different datacenters, it will show difference based on your server location.

    I can guarantee that with our plugin when used independently as it should be used… the load time will be lower.
