Our site manager added this plug in and initially I was pretty happy with it. Looked good, worked well (I thought), and we liked that it had a delayed appearance.

However, I am incredibly frustrated by the facebook "Like" button. As the social media manager for my company I'm always on the look out to get more views. While this button does cause the user to "like" a page it does NOT show up in their time line, their news feed, or anywhere else except the "activities" box all the way at the bottom left of a user's profile. What a joke!

Currently looking for a replacement sharing tool until this is addressed.

Works great!

Three questions (one pretty major), no response in several months.

Don't use this plugin. It doesn't function correctly and there's no support anywhere (despite saying you can request help through their website)

plugin messes up meta data
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin was great, but now it messes up my meta data for social sharing and is harmful for SEO.

So far so good

I saw this on Jon Loomer's site and thought I'd give it a try. So far the only negative is that it is difficult to style the positioning of the vertical bar (I'd like to move it a little to the left).

Automatic Delete

I have tried the older version of this in past, and deleted it. Then I read some reviews of the ones praising it. So I guessed on trying it again. What a mistake. I put in on pages, and above content it only showed two icons and were not click-able. I went to blog posts to check it out and I lost my posts. Posts just disappeared completely gone. What the crap. That is when I went to installed plugins and deleted it. If they have a Pro version. I do not see how it could be any better than this. If the free version is this bad, I would not want to try the Pro version at all.

looks and works great

Really useful plugin. And with the new version 1.2.4 all critical reviews seem moot.

I have some issues with the offset of the floating sidebar as well, but I'm confident that this will be addressed in a future version.

BTW, if it hadn't been for the "ad", I wouldn't have found the plugin so I'm happy it was there.
