Spam maker. Sort this out
By , for WP 4.1

This has a serious problem with a hack. You will NEVER be able to remove the plugin files. they will always be with you.

Do NOT use this plugin until THEY sort it out.

This is coming from the application not our side.

Login with your social media account so they can spam you!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Why do I have to login to create an account on addthis.com?
Why do I need to sign in with my facebook account?

Oh yeah, so they can keep spamming you more efficiently. This was a good plugin but its been taken over by greedy marketers

Infinite Loop - really?
By , for WP 4.1.1

SO incredibly frustrated on 3/19/15. Spent HOURS trying to figure out why all of a sudden my high traffic wordpress sites would not load. Had to install Firefox, load Firebug, and learned it was this plugin that all of a sudden brought everything down.

I lost revenue, hours, and got a big headache from this. Can't believe this was the culprit.

I am going to try the new version since I need this feature and it says the infinite loop is fixed, but proceed with caution.

Pfff

It does not work at all.

Use to work fine, but slowed my website too much
By , for WP 4.1.1

It use to work great. However, since I turned on the GZip compression and started using CloudFlare on my website, this plugin has broken my website to be super duper slow to load.

Page gets stuck on the homepage. However, the rest of the pages load just fine.

This issue is particularly on the Front Page and the Categories. Doesn't occur on the Posts.

Kindly fix asap.

What the hell?

I've used AddThis before, but now I'm totally dissapointed by it. 1 star is too much for this plugin. Too bad I can't rate it with a half star. It can't be called a plugin.

The new update sucks.

Terrible update

I was very pleased with the plugin untill the last update... Now, I have to look for another one. Unfortunatelly the latest version ruins my website.

I don't want the new options and dashboard, ruined the whole site

Well, don't have a lot to say about it, a lot of previous work (and customization) down the drain, will not use this tool anymore.
