Thanks for reading and I hope the author(s) of the plugin read it.
I have extremely mixed feelings about this plugin. On one hand, I like the plugin and what it offers. On the other hand, it comes across as rather presumptuous. I am sick of having advertising rammed down my throat.
I know advertising can be a necessary evil when it comes to maintaining any free service. I already use advertising on my blog, but that is -my- choice and I have full control over the advert content I allow on my website. It's incredibly annoying to log onto my website to check something and find an unwanted, unrelated advert present in a conspicuous place.
I understand that the logistics would make it impossible for them to notify all users of the new advertising features, but I do not understand why it is an opt out service when it should be opt in.
Ben vandaag bezig geweest met het zoeken naar de widget die ik kan gebruiken om de sharing rate van mijn website [ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ] te verbeteren.

Shareaholic is an advertising-supported service, which means that we are able to offer many of our services without charge to you by displaying advertising on our service and on partner websites
I can't actually see any visual ads on my site, and I appreciate that the plugin is free and supported by ads, but making calls to external sites is unacceptable and honestly I'm surprised that so many people are using this plugin.
I use it for some time now and didn't have any problems; like that it has great look and different features;
Yeah sneaky practices with automatic opt-in on settings, not recommended at all! Had it on one of my sites, removed it for good!
Great social plugin with useful features!
It does what it says, and does it well.
