Worst social sharing plugin I have used for WP
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin sucks. It has this CopyNShare crap that automatically adds links and hashtags to the end of your content when a user copy and pastes it anywhere. Very spammy if you ask me. This kind of promotion is garbage for SEO and could result in a penalty down the road.

There is no way to disable this feature, there is no area in the settings, and after trying to hack the plugin for an hour I was unsuccessful.

The share bar looks nice, but this feature is annoying as hell.

Harvests admin email directly from WP without permission
By , for WP 3.9

It appears that the plugin 'harvests' the admin email upon installation.

Furthermore, the email we received had no option to unsubscribe! This is CRIMINAL!!
We will file a formal complaint with the FTC against this company.


Does not fully remove itself
By , for WP 3.8.2

After uninstalling the plugin it continues to leave a tracking hashtag on your site's urls.

Works but slow down page speed
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is worthless, because it overkills page speed by loading blocking javascript codes on EVERY!!!! page. Do not recommend to install it at all.

it's working but it slows down my webpage with 3s and it puts a strange code on my site URL tail like http://www.mydomain.com\#sthash.AlaXDUCq.dpbs.

Really love this, does everything I wanted on the desktop. The only issue is on the mobile theme it shows the silver top bar but not the buttons. If it had the facility to move the buttons from the centre to the left that would be perfect!
