Works great, even when we ask it to do weird things.
We'd highly recommend it!

I like it but...
By , for WP 4.5.3

there are some issues:

  • still the old G+ icon
  • icon font instead of accessible SVGs
  • the grid in which the icons are laid out has outer spacing which could be removed by negative margins
  • the control over the icons' width and height isn't very precise since the icons do not have real widths and heights but rather paddings
  • the order of social networks in the widget settings is illogical

Also, I would like to see more social media icons added.
Without the mentioned issues which exist since several months, the plugin would be perfect! It seems like development has stopped which is quite sad in my opinion...

BTW the plugin definitely works in WP 4.5.3!

Simple and Easy but I wish there was the latest Google icon

I like how easy this is to use, but please add the new Google icon.

My Go-To for Quick Genesis Sites

This is the best social media icon plugin you can use for Genesis. It's quick and easy. The only thing that could make it any more awesome, would be for it to have just a few more obscure profiles (like Steam).

Easy to setup, easy to customize, I use it for almost every single Genesis site I build.

Does exactly what we need it to do!

I struggle through despite my frustrations
By , for WP 4.3.1

Every update... every single one, I have to through and edit this plugin to make it work. Each time I have to go in and remove the attempted caching details on the font paths, otherwise they don't show up properly. They show up as blocks of unicode characters, not the actual font. If this was only happening on one site of mine I wouldn't complain but it happens on every single one I use.

The only reason I continue to use it is because it does look nice when it finally works.

Does it nicely

Works like a Charm!
Simple, light weight plugin that would go well with most of the professional sites.
