WAS a great plugin
By ,

This plugin was popular because it was lightweight. It's now overloaded with tracking scripts that kill site speed. Oh, and hardly a very nice gesture to delete all previous versions. Avoid this plugin.

Tracking
By , for WP 4.5.3

Not happy with the buyout from ShareThis and gathering information from clients for your free and paid versions that you make money on and not your paying clients, switching to another plugin for all my clients.

Not What It Used To - Now Wants To Be Google Analytic
By , for WP 4.5.3

Comments by malfiehenpox (Acquired by ShareThis And Tracker Added!) and others are accurate.

Seems the new owners want free reign to collect analytic data from your visitors.

If you approved of this, fine.

I did not agree to the attempt forced accepted of sneaky new terms of condition. Once saw it, I immediately deleted the plugin.

There are several nice free social share plugin. If you use Genesis ramework, just get Genesis Simple Share.

Otherwise, skate away fast from this plugin.

Acquired by ShareThis And Tracker Added!
By ,

Was great, but has been acquired by Sharethis, a terrible spamfest of a share button.

Since the acquisition, Sharethis have added a tracker to this plugin. Page loading is now considerably slower.

Such a shame.

AVOID IT! AVOID! Unless you want your site and all its visitors to be monitored and tracked by Sharethis.

Too many to summarize

The latest version forces you to accept their new terms. The new terms are inaccessible because the developer's website SSL certificate was revoked. This was a great plugin for years. It now wants blind approval to spy on everything you do. Not interested. Run, don't walk, away from this plugin. I've already removed it from all my sites.

Worst Update
By , for WP 4.5.3

My site load was load below 500ms but new update added sharethis code and its make my website to load in 17 second. What?

Great stuff

Has what I needed and works perfectly. Tried some others but none as good as Simple Share Button Adder IMHO

Slowing down site for 1+ sec and adds 20+ requests
By , for WP 4.5.3

I just realised how much this plugin started to slow down my sites. I think previous versions was fast and OK but the lastest one is just no acceptable.
I ran test on my testing site and from 14 requests and 543ms jumped after activation of this plugin to 42 requests and 1.83 sec!!!! Man, you must be joking!
I think I will return with previous version. Thank you for giving me more work!
