Fast and easy
By , for WP 3.5.2

I have been looking for a plugin like this, for all day know. Actually, I installed this, and then had to re-install, because I could not see where I could configure. So after trying another plugin, that suddenly killed my site from loading Facebook, I went back to this. Finally, I found the config settings, which for some reason, is not located under SETTINGS in my WP site. But, I configured it, and like the options.

Floating bar doesn't show up

Maybe it's me but the floating bar doesn't show up. Otherwise, good plugin. You might look at other similar social plugins out there.

Scrollbar on icons under Chrome and Firefox
By , for WP 3.5.2

Works fine under IE but when using FF and Chrome the "Facebook Like" "Tweet like", etc., shows scroll bars under icons (which doesn't look nice).
Tried to tweak sociable.css but couldn't make it work...
A fix would be highly appreciated.

Used to be OK, now full of bugs!
By , for WP 3.5.1

I used to rely on this plugin because of its easy installation and usage. Unfortunately, it has now degraded to such a degree that I had to uninstall it.

Apart from the validation errors that it causes and that have been known for over a year, it creates empty menu entries in the admin panel and spreads malware. It is obvious that those issues won't be addressed any time soon.

Bloated & broken

Excellent

This Plugin is easy to set-up, easy to configure and works perfectly.

This is a great Plugin and I honestly have nothing negative to say about it.

Working

It's just good, easy to use.

Bad experience
By ,

The plugin is bloated and added empty menu items. The "complete uninstall" feaure seems not working. Developers seems not care about the quality of the software. Bad experience for me.

No Pinterest
By , for WP 3.5.1

Advertised as having a Pinterest icon but the Pinterest icon is not there. Many complaints in the support forum that the Pinterest icon is not there.

Unnecessary Code
By , for WP 3.5.1

I found that this bloated the code on my website by loading the code for social companies that I had set in the options not to show. The icons for those social companies remained hidden, but the code for them was present in the source file output by WordPress.
