Too far from a commercial product
By , for WP 4.2.1

I purchased a Pro version in order to get proper support which I've never gotten.
It took some time to make it working in the first place, and it stopped working after an update.
Response time is huge (takes days).

Conclusion: waste of money.

Bad things happening after installing - just FYI!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Page load times increased by 300-500%…10 seconds to 40-65 seconds.

My bounce rate went from 37% to 94% and all the 100% bounces were acquired by "simple share button" referrals.

So, yes, if you want more traffic to come to your site - useless traffic that totally screws up your stats and analytics and rankings and SEO -then this is the plugin for you.

I put up a test site, installed NOTHING except the default 2015 theme - and this plugin…the domain has never been active, no sitemaps were submitted, I did nothing at all.

253 visits in that first week - 100% bounce rate of course - and looking at the geo data - not one from my own country (the US).

This plugin was, to me, like installing malware on my site! LOL

No working support
By , for WP 4.1.1

As I see they don't care this free support threads.
I look for another social share solution instead.

Dashed hopes
By , for WP 4.1.1

I had high hopes for this plugin but after installing page load times went to over 60 seconds. Yes, that's right, 60 seconds. I deactivated the plugin and page loads went back to normal and reactivated and went to a crawl.

WP 4.1.1 running Vantage premium theme

Uninstall left code behind
By ,

I tried to configure but it wasn't working right, and since I was only looking for the share feature. The plugin seemed clunky anyway so I uninstalled. But now I keep seeing the message "Your Simple Share Buttons need configuration before they will appear. View the tutorial video here" so the uninstall must have left something behind.

EDIT: and a few minutes later it stopped showing the message when editing plugins. Nevermind, issue solved

Its not working anymore
By , for WP 4.0

It only worked once. then now it just stalls loading when i click my social icon

doesnt work anymore!
By , for WP 3.8.1

dont bother, buggy

Didn't work
By , for WP 3.8.1

If I didn't do something right, it's because it's far from "simple". I did go to the Configuration pages and made adjustments accordingly. It showed a text message with a link to their site - no buttons at all.

beware
By , for WP 3.8.1

i turned it off and it started some kind of error

No Support!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Unfortunately, I have some problems with the plugin. But, I can find no support here . So I must look around for alternatives.
