Nice features but a resource hog
By , for WP 4.0

I ran this on my blog for a few months, and noticed things getting slower. I installed a plugin analyzer and it showed that Jetpack consumed 60% of my resources and the other 16 plugins I'm using the remaining 40%. The features added are just not worth the performance penalty. As soon as I disabled the plugin, things improved dramatically.

I'm on a shared (multi-tenant) hosting environment and run a small blog. Jetpack impacted my load times dramatically. Sorry guys, but until you work out the performance problems I can't install this again.

Nice view up here!

its great plugin for my website self hosting.

its slow and it should only connect to wp.com when functions needs it
By , for WP 3.9.2

i don't understand what the people at wordpress.com want to achieve with this plugin, it literally slows everything down, probably because it is such a big plugin, but also the need to connect to wordpress.com and mirror to wordpress.com content and have wordpress.com stuff running on the background and on the site when its not needed is quite a hog in every sense of the word, uninstall it from 6 of my sites and going to keep well away from it!

Many feature in one

Good to have it

One of the best plugin I've came across. It has multiple features and group of other plugins which are mandatory for any blog/website, you just need to configure it and that's it.

Memory Hog
By , for WP 3.9.2

I've previously used Jetpack successfully but, on trying to install on a new blog setup, it killed my little website. Hogged a huge amount of memory and spawned unhappy error messages. Couldn't access dashboard interface until I deleted the plugin. I always wondered why my previous blog setup was slower than desired... I used to blame it on modified themes or lagging servers. Now I strongly suspect it was Jetpack all along.

Spammy! Not recommended for serious sites

After installing this plugin you will see an image will appear on top right of your site from source http://pixel.wp.com/g.gif

Had to uninstall
By , for WP 3.9.2

I've had to uninstall from 7 websites today. Jetpack slows everything down to a crawl and since uninstalling ALL my sites are now running quickly and with no issues.

I like the idea but why on earth do you automatically activate all modules? Nobody needs them all, why can't we choose?

I was using comments and sharing, i've replaced those with WordPress native comments and a plugin which probably took as long to do as it would to deactivate all the modules but I just don't trust this plugin for future updates, sorry.
