Great for simple links
By , for WP 4.1

Very easy to use and does exactly as described. Lots of choices of social networks -- perhaps not going to cover every single one, but many. Excellent job - Thanks!

No Custom Icons

Doesn't have the ability to add new social icons like Houzz. At least not that I can see and the developer doesn't answer emails. Or at least not mine or in a timely manner.

Works fine and looks nice on white background.

Needed to uninstall and re-install when upgrading to WP 4.0

Love it, but not compatible with WP Touch
By , for WP 4.0.1

I love SSI, I love the customisable colours etc, and was really happy with it on my site, but it's not compatible with WP Touch. I contacted the team, but was told I would have to change my CSS. I'm not well versed enough to do that :0(

So. If you're not using WP Touch, you'll love this, it's the best of these plugins, and I've checked loads of them out. If you are using WP Touch however, it will put all of the wrong icons on your mobile site...

Ideal social icons solution for flat in minimal designs.

I was looking for a plugin that use font icons and had ability to set the desired normal and hover colors for social icons, and this plugin does exactly what i was looking for.

Nice, easy and clean

Added to my Genesis framework install. Easy to setup, sleek and nice.

Only missed an option. Makes the possibility of choosing if the links for social sites needs to be opened in the same window or a new one, like the links in WP.

Adding this to a great plugin would top it off.

LOVE. IT.

Great plugin, super easy to use.

I like it.

I was using font-awesome for the HTML build of my site.
Now I can add font-awesome or any other font-icon to the plugin.

I'm new to WordPress in general but the Genesis theme seems the way to go.

Love the options, miss Yelp

This plugin is perfect and has all the options I needed (alignment and color customization), but I need a Yelp button too. Hope it gets added!

Hats off!

I was looking for social icon set with Instagram, after long search i found it. Thanks developer. It would be good if there is some designs option and have short-code enabled system. Thanks
