  • Not only that, but I think it contains BlueKai, Chango, eXelate, and Media6Degrees. I don’t think my other plug-ins could contain them.

    Slows down pages immensely. And really sucks.

    Almost all widgets and websites(including this one) use 3rd party cookies to help measure, sustain and improve the products. LinksAlpha(company behind this plugin) widgets currently offer user-side opt-out. We will soon support publisher-side opt-out too. As for the impact on load times, according to our measurements, there is no noticeable impact. Still, to mitigate any impact at all, this widget will be transitioning to async js based widget in the next release of the plugin coming out soon. This should eliminate all impact to page load times.

    I can confirm that this widget is significantly slowing down the pageload times for one of my clients: http://www.pinupsalonaustin.com.

    Any update on the next release that’ll be using the asynchronous js?

    Can you please instead use the following plugin we offer – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/social-discussions/. This plugin loads faster and uses asynchronous js where possible.

    Using Social Discussions now. Thanks for the suggestion!
