Sneaky advertiser!
By , for WP 4.0.1

Love the floating share buttons but hate EVERYTHING else about the plugin - mostly adding affiliate ads to related posts. I was never notified and read nothing about it; I can only conclude these folks are a bunch of scummy jerks.

Free, Nice, but..

I want to be as honest as possible. The plugin is good.
Tried this plugin (and its service) a while. Nice layout and better than another similar plugin.
However, after seeing some ads appeared, done in an unethical way, I uninstalled it immediately. Misusing the plugin to inject and infiltrate unwanted links/ads is not something anyone can accept. Opting out is a pain, and it seems that doing this is hardened.
Giving something free doesn't mean you can do anything you want...

If WordPress had a zero star. This is how I would rate what Shareaholic has done. I have now 3 weight loss ads and other ones in my each of blog posts which is something not related to my blog. All that without my approval. Also their instructions on how to not opt-in into their ads program does not work. you have to login and go thru a painful process to turn the feature off. Stay out of it. It show the character of who runs the company.

Injecting ads

Injecting ads without permission!
Uninstalled from all sites.

Please turn this feature off, or allow users the option to have it on or off.

Excelent and free.

Be happy.

Embeds Ads
By , for WP 3.9

I just noticed this plugin has been injecting affiliate links onto my post pages for god knows how long. It never used to do this and I never was informed this was going to happen. Totally unacceptable.

Great for free

I would say perfect except 1 thing that bothers me. Often when i post something, posts go public in facebook faster than opengraph gets the correct info, resulting in blank picture links. I tried the randomize time option but i think it doesnt work.

Anyway great plugin!

nice, but

This plugin is nice, but it's missing instagram, any plans to add this ?

hidden affiliate links
By , for WP 4.0

apparently they change our links on our website to affiliate links so they can make money off our sites, not nice!!!

Hidden Ads Steal Your Traffic
By , for WP 4.0

Shareaholic now embeds ads in our content by default in at least two ways without telling us, which is against the WordPress terms for plugins. Too bad, it could have been a great plugin, but I will never use any plugin built by this author again. I would always wonder what else they're going to slip into my site.
