So far So Good
By , for WP 3.9.2

So far so good. The plugin does exactly what it says it will do with no issues.

There is an option to include a Facebook ID to get analytics, but no instructions or links are provided so that could be improved.

There is no option to share via Reddit - I hope this comes along in a future update.

It seems like the "share" plugin category for WordPress is full of crappy apps. Good to see one that isn't. I used ShareThis before and might have used AddThis, but both of the apps for these companies are terrible.

Neat and Tidy
By , for WP 3.8.1

Works with WP 3.8.1 with one caveat:

Add this css to get Facebook window to display properly:

.fb-like span {
  overflow:visible !important;
  height: 250px !important;
  width:450px !important;
  margin-right:-375px;
}

Wishlist:
--Be able to specify icon order in admin.
--Change icon spacing in admin.

Finally One Social Plugin that works with my other plugins!!
By , for WP 3.8

Today I have been breaking my head trying to find a social tools that can work along with my other plugins. And this one did the trick. Its basic, but it will get the job done. It is very important to allow people to share the content easily to help get the word out about my site. Am happy with this. Great Job.

Works, but could be better

It does the job just fine, but I wish it were simpler to tweak the style of the buttons, e.g. I don't like the huge spacing between them.

Does what it says

Great plugin if you only want to share to the five social networks included.

I am taking off a star because of this limitation!

Great Plug-in, but Slows my Site Big Time
By , for WP 3.5

I really enjoy this plug-in. But it slows the speed to load my page considerably. I can see the servers the site is connecting to on the bottom left of my browser... and it just hangs often times for 10 - 15 seconds before it fully loads.

Great plugin

It does the job pretty well!

Fast social sharing
By , for WP 3.5

Social websites tend to really slow down the load times of your site. This is a reality because those sites are so popular. Async Social Share helps to speed that process up along with giving you simple sharing options.

Awesome
