This plugin should not be here. Unsafe plugin

This didn't last long in my plugin list!
By , for WP 3.9.1

It's not really free, as it's tied in with a sign-up at linksalpha, a page with a really bad user interface, and later you're told that the stats are only a 30-day free trial, after which you have to buy a subscription.

It also has very invasive privacy settings when you link to your personal Facebook account (eg it wants access to all posts and links of pages you manage! I manage several clients' pages, so that's a no no.). But you cannot link it to the relevant Facebook Page of the social sharing account.

Hence this plugin lasted all but 5 minutes!

Broke my site
By ,

After I installed this I couldn't connect to my site AT ALL. Got "cannot establish connection with database" error message. Couldn't even go uninstall it b/c couldn't access admin either. Thankfully, deleting the plugin via FTP restored my site. Phew! Scary. :/
