Get Plugin! One of the best

Easy to control
By , for WP 4.5.3

I've seen what a post ends up looking like on Twitter when I don't use this plugin, and I like it much better when I do! The only thing I didn't like was the 3rd-party "related content" (which was nothing related or that I ever wanted to see in my page!) but that was easy-peasy to turn off. And after that was turned off, I was thrilled to see other posts from my own blog listed as "related content" without needing an additional plugin to do that!

Simplel and Easy

Does just what it's supposed to do - and that's not always the case with plugins. thanks!

Love the social side - related content not so much
By ,

This was a suggested plugin for the social side. I love all the networks that are available and it makes it easy for my readers to share with their connections.

However, the related content was anything but related. I refreshed once to see if it would change. It didn't so I turned if off. I want to control the ads placed on my site, so I didn't ever use that function.

very useful

Mixed benefits of using Shareaholic
By , for WP 4.5.3

On one hand provides solid social media sharing services for all the major social websites: Facebook, Gplus, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, etc. And the icons are sizeable and positionable. Great.

Then for related posts/stories Shareaholic inserts its own offsite stories and ruins the service. So I have to find another plugin for Related Stories. Such a disappointment.

SEO Malware injected by Shareaholic
By , for WP 4.5.3

Utterly disappointed by your practices to inject "Third Party Data Services" into consumer's websites.

Seems like a gamble or a roll of a dice with this because you are essentially injecting an iframe for third parties that can be something as simple as a 1px by 1px image from one of your "partner" services or, in at least one instance, there was more crap being injected which was detected when they were trying to execute scripts from the browser DOM.

I say it's an SEO Malware injected because I don't know what else to call this. Short of adding several keywords to the footer of the page, this is exactly what this is doing.

Where this is dangerous is, when you are not vetting your "partners" or "third party data services" to "offset operating costs" (as you explain on your own website), you can allow tens of thousands of websites to become phishing bots.

However, I am sure (I certainly hope) that you are not allowing these iframe redirects and script injections on purpose. Probably some bad apples in your pool of "third party data services".

I did not find the option to disable or turn off this feature in the version of the plugin we were using and just the fact that you have this as part of your services it makes me just want to use Hupso or any other plugin that do not engage in this kind of practices.
