Awesome!!
By , for WP 4.1

One of the best and well documented plugins that I ever used.

Alas, took the site down
By , for WP 4.1

Activating it took the site down with a series of fatal errors and had to delete it to restore sanity.

Installation error - privacy violation

Said the plugin had an invalid header and refused to install. That's enough for me - not ready for prime time. Also - Automatic needs to have a look at the practice of harvesting email addresses. I won't subject my visitors to that sort of intrusion and abuse. No Jetpack for me!

Thank you

An excellent plugin! Works fine with wordpress 4.1.
Thank you again for your work.

Includes the kitchen sink -- you may not need it all.

This plugin includes many disparate modules that you may not need. Be sure to deactivate those you won't be using to keep the bloat down. The few modules I do use are wonderful and perform exactly as expected.

Amazing

I like it very much,,,

Beware!
By , for WP 4.1

I was using only custom CSS and thinking of using the Stats until I realized that it was substantially slowing down my blog.
(Then I found out that I was not the only one: just search the web for WordPress Custom CSS slow. The only solution I found (from Jetpack authors) was to move the custom css into the theme which was no problem for me since I had already hacked my theme.)
Then I deactivated Jetpack and deleted it successfully - I checked, no files left.
Nevertheless, Jetpack's items were still referenced in the headers of my pages. (I first noticed this in the pingdom waterfall.) There were three items: custom css, jetpack css and an item at s0.wp.com. The custom CSS was a 404 while jetpack css was 0 bytes; these two took a lot of time for my server to deliver. (Yes, I saved this waterfall on my comp.)
After a few hours of searching the net for the reason, I suddenly found that these items disappeared from the headers and the waterfall.
I looked at the waterfall, refreshed pages, looked into the headers, tested the page with pingdom again - and suddenly the three jetpack's items were gone!
I want to understand what is going on on my site and really do not like this kind of behavior behind my back!
While searching for reasons of my trouble, I have found that many people had many troubles with Jetpack [ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]
Enough for me to never use any of its wonderful features!

Cool plugin
By , for WP 4.1

JetPack is a cool plugin.

I'd like to give more it 4 stars but I can not.

a) Some of these plugins should beings integrated directly into WP (Similar news, Contact form, Icon site, Omnisearch, Share on FB and c.o., Subscriptions, Widget Visibility). Plugins require a lot of memory php.

b) I must to install all JP even if there are plugins that I'm not using, I can only disable it's, not remove. There are 17 plugins JP that I do not use. I can not find all my favorite plugins without JP, like those of JP Bot.

c) I regret in some plugins : In developer mode, all those applying for WP connection to work while they only not need such Carousel (if memory serves good).

d) I dont like : VaultPress (not opensource/not free), Notifications, JSON API, the WP Connection button in "Jetpack Comments".

Infinite Scroll not work on my theme (GeneratePress), anyway I dont like the FB style. I prefer WP-PageNavi, this modern style lacks natively in WP.

Similar plugins to "BruteProtect", "bbPress", "Float To Top Button", "Responsive Lightbox", "Evermore" and "Hide My WP" add's on JP or better on WP that would be great.

Thank you for your development work and effort.

Best regards.

Awsome
