EXACTLY what I needed!
By , for WP 4.1.1

I tried so many plug-ins, all of which have the usual list of social media sites you can display (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and very few with the ability to include custom links for other profile or review sites (Trulia, Angie's List, etc.). Several of the most popular sites aren't really a fit for us, yet we have many profiles and review sites that aren't included in these plug-ins, so it was important to find a plug-in that would allow us to create custom links. This plug-in is EXACTLY what I wanted. The fact that it doesn't have pre-loaded icons is ok - in fact, I see this as an added bonus as you can upload whatever icon for those pages that you like best. Some plug-ins offer different theme sets for the icons, and although that's nice, since we have so many that aren't included in these sets, the lack of icon theme options is worth being able to add custom links. The setup screens are very simple and user-friendly, then you simply go to your widgets area to add it where you want it. Thank you thank you thank you!!

Best Fit For Social Icons

All you need for Social Sharing , And Social Custom Icons Will Come up With This Single Plugin.

no built in social icons

I pay 49.00 for top premium wordpress themes. To build a plugin and not add what is probably the simplest feature of all with a link to buy 35.00 for social icons seems backward to me. These are the kind of plugins that make you wish you didn't waste your time downloading. At least ask for a donation or something or prove that it's worth it. Maybe this post helps someone else not waste time.

Could be easier

Good idea but it requires more effort than one would think to make it work just right. However, I think with all the feedback noted in support, if the author has time, this will become a really good plugin.

Easy and Simple

Easy to manage and customize

Easy to use, but kills Royale Slider ...

so I make social menu manually :(
I don't understand, why does it need to create as 1st level menu item in admin panel. It should be a good place under the Settings or Tools.

Very good, you can add your own social icons edited on CorelDRAW (or other images that you want to use)!!!!
Thank you for the options to edition. :)

Didn't Address Support Forum
By , for WP 3.9.1

I am going to look for a new plugin because there is an annoying line under my icons and it's been a while that I've been waiting for some help through the support forum but still nothing.

NO Icons

Functionality is nice but have to look for Icons. expecting to see social icon images with Plugin.

Near Perfect! (Still 5 star worthy, though)

I have been using this plugin for as long as i can remember. This plugin is incredibly easy to use and has just the right amount of customization options.

BUT...(very small but)... it wasn't until recently that I realized that it was not validating correctly. The cellspacing, padding, and border should be set with CSS according to the W3C validator.

"The cellspacing attribute on the table element is obsolete. Use CSS instead."

"The cellpadding attribute on the table element is obsolete. Use CSS instead."

"The border attribute on the table element is obsolete. Use CSS instead."

"The border attribute is obsolete. Consider specifying img { border: 0; } in CSS instead."

Honestly this doesn't affect the appearance at all...just one of those things that keeps a site from 100% validating.
