Redirects the request through their site before sharing
By , for WP 4.1.1

I hate sneaky plugins. This one redirects you to the addtoany site before sharing or tweeting or whatever. So each time someone is sharing a post on your site, the addtoany site gets a hit. Sneaky. I removed it directly after installation.

Spam Plugin!!!!!!
By ,

This is a real SPAM-Plugin. After installation it won´t show up in the Plugin-List - so you can´t easyly de-activate it or get rid off it.

Whats more: Every time you click ond "Share" or "Recommend", once installed, you get a nasty addtoany advertisment with a cross-site-sripting.

Why redirect to AddToAny??
By ,

Every share click goes to AddToAny.com first

By , for WP 4.1

Amazing. I came here to compliment this software and after reading the comments I did a little test. After disabling this plugin my site speed improved dramatically as measured by a third-party (Pingdom). Along with other reasons I would avoid this plugin.

AddtoAny is Extracting Your Info & Slowing Down Your Site
By ,

AddtoAny sends your website stats to mediasixdegrees so that they can make money off your information.

This plugin will slow down your website unnecessarily as it sends your stats to MediaSixdegrees.com

you will not be driving in the fast lane slowwwwwwwww

hidden crap ie media6degrees.com dont do it

no way to not use/load Google Analytics
By , for WP 4.0

I decided on purpose to not use Google Analytics on my page, but this plugin decided that at least the ga.js should be loaded in any case.
Despite of code hacking I couldn't find any possibility to disable this behavior so this plugin is not for me.
Whether one likes the way of sharing everything through the add2any website is an individual decision; I still prefer direct sharing without someone else monitoring all outbound activities from my blog - it's mine after all....
