Looks are deceiving
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin looked great - until I wanted to make a change. Nothing would take effect. Finally, at a loss for any other option, I deleted the plugin and reinstalled it. No good, configuration just shows as per the original configuration regardless of what I changed.

Then I gave up and decided to delete it for good. Guess what! I can't! I de-activated and uninstalled the plugin but the Social Media feather widgets still show up everywhere. I have no idea how to really get rid of this thing.

Another waste of time

Too complicated and it couldn't work with a simple task like align the buttons to the right

Makes my site very slow
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin slows my site from a 1.5 second load time to 11 seconds.

Does the job, but...
By , for WP 4.0

It uses 50% of the load time on our site.. No other plug-in uses this much time!
Slows the site down by 0.59 seconds per page.

Continuously crashed my site
By , for WP 3.9

My site would crash with an internal server error every time I tried to activate this plugin.

Very Pricey add-ons
By , for WP 3.9

To make the plugin do the nice things you see in screenshots, you must pay a lot of money. £9.99 to give you decent looking icons, another £14.99 to do the greyed out buttons.

Got blank admin screen after activation
By , for WP 3.8.1

I installed via the wp installer, screen says it was a successful install, I click 'activate' and screen goes white.

This happened twice, so I don't know if it is incompatible with another plugin or what, but it obviously won't work for me.

Great Idea...but didn't work for me
By , for WP 3.5

I love the concept. Lightweight, no JS, simple and compact add-on with optional widget. Unfortunately, not multisite compatible (except for blogs on a subdomain, won't show up for domain mapped blogs), the UI for customizing the links is buggy, and it adds "news" to the dashboard, which I hate when there is no option to turn it off in the plugin itself.

I can live with the ads for the other icon sets in the admin (even though the plugin makes it look like these come with the free version) and would probably donate if it worked. It just didn't for me.
