4.1 out of 5 stars

It was my favorite plugin for social follow, but now that i read about the spam stuff, and indeed, the last reply from the author was 2 years ago, so i would not trust it anymore. Even if he didn't put on purpose and fixed it, it's a too long time meanwhile. I liked the simple display in the sidebar, and found two alternatives, Floating Social Media Icon and Social Media Feather, both even smaller in size than this one, and especially: up-to-date

Excellent widget

I've used this on many sites. It's a quick and easy way to get links into any widget, for any number of websites where someone may have a presence. Love it!

ok. guess I can request reconsideration from Google now.
I am indebted to this forum for confirming my suspicions.

it really is a shame, because this plugin did exactly what it claimed. I still have it in a back up and I just might have to hack it to bits and see what might be reclaimed from the wreckage. i'll take what I want in compensation for my time.

so much talent wasted on the malevolent and desperate.

I searched for a twitter for y'all to try to more publicly applaud you. I've spent the past hour flickering through methods to use custom social media icons and it just. wasn't. working.

Then I HAPPENED across this plug in and it saved my website <3

The tutorial on how to use custom icons is so easy to follow. Thank you so much. When I'm less poor, you're on my list of people to donate to.

Works flawlessly with WP4!
By , for WP 4.0

Still works flawlessly with WordPress version 4 even though this plugin has not been updated in a while.

The reason I still choose to used this is because it is the ONLY completely FREE and CUSTOMIZABLE social media plugin I have been able to find.

Even for Behance or any other site, you can upload your own choice of icons, and use it with this plugin!

I don't understand the review which says it injects backdoor SPAM - nothing like that has happened on any of the 2 sites I used this plugin on. Most probably the culprit is something else, not this plugin or else the same thing would be happening on my sites as well. The reviewer should be using Akismet plugin to protect from spam.

Still, there no excuse for not updating the plugin especially since WP4 is out and the author should at least test it with this WP version.

Great Concept but has MALWARE & is Dead
By , for WP 3.9.2

Love the way this looks and the ease of configuration. BUT my sites have been hit with MALWARE. After investigating, we found out this plugin has a history of injecting MALICIOUS CODE on sites and was banned from WP. The author convinced them to put it back after an update that was supposed to remove the bad code. BUT it has not been updated since then (April 2013) and the author has not visited the Forum to answer questions or offer help in over a year. It would appear this plugin still has some backdoor SPAM INJECTION CODE and is dead and should be removed from the repository. Too bad, because it did exactly what I wanted a SM plugin to do!
