Pay for basic functions
By , for WP 4.3.1

You have to pay to choose where to display the button. I usually don't have any problems with that kind of options, but this one is basic. This is stupid.

Look like WP plugins has devolved into spam marketplace. more then half features are pro.

Does not work! No support! WASTED MONEY on pro version!!!
By , for WP 4.1.5

Button shows up only on the very first page impression. Even pro version did not work. Contacted support several times, submitted tickets - no response, nothing! Beware! Fraud in my eyes!!!

Standard button feature does NOT work

Couldn't deactivate...
By , for WP 4.1

I couldn't remove this plugin for a long while because it didn't show up in my "Plugins" panel.

As it turned out I first had to deactivate AdBlock and/or Ghostery to make this Plugin visible in my "Plugins" panel, and thus possible to deactivate/delete.

Needless to say, I don't like that.

It messes up facebook sharing. Small thumb was shared.
By , for WP 4.0.1

I am working to fix this problem for 3 days. Finally I found what messed my Facebook post image size when sharing.

It adds 150x150 og:image meta and other meta to site and I can't find how to switch it off.

*** UPDATE ***
After several months, tried it again. Still og:image is added. Have to disable it.

with 90px width make the popup not display entirely
By , for WP 3.9

I have a problem on my facebook like plugin button. When I click on "Like", the popup doesn't display entirely, this is due to a span with a width set to 90px which I can't figure out how to change in style.css.

Plugin doesn't work correctly - like button never appeared. Technical implementation is terrible. Deleted...

technical problems
By , for WP 3.7.1

From the outside, the plugin "does what is says on the tin": a FaceBook like button is added to the (top,bottom) of every post and page.

However, the technical implementation is not good: in multiple-post pages, each Like button is added as a new instance of the FaceBook API script, which causes multiple inits of that script (one for each button), which in turn causes large loading times and unnecessary overhead.

More importantly, if users have turned off cross-domain scripting, which is a browser security feature that is becoming default in most modern browsers, the button's code causes an error "Blocked a frame with origin Facebook.com from accessing a frame with origin <your site> - protocols, domains and ports must match. This causes the button load to fail completing, upon which the button re-initialises. This cascade of errors takes up full CPU and render your website unworkable.
