Use the Social Profiles Widget plugin instead.

Uses Javascript despite saying that it doesn't use it

Firstly this is rated 5 stars by the plugin author themselves - lets balance that a bit! :)

Secondly, the plugin states that it uses NO Javascript, however, when the source code is rendered it makes inline javascript calls to various social platforms using separate inline <Script> tags for each one - not great for deferred loading/ performance/ caching.

Thirdly, even if you don't want to show facebook counts etc... it still shows it

Fourth, I find it a bit off the amount of self promotion/ advertising spam this plugin installs in the menus - makes it near unuseable to work with if you load a lot of widgets in.

Generally I don't agree with it's pricing model, it's done the wrong way, e.g. pay to enable all social links, just means I use a free plugin instead.
