It used to be a good plugin for a long time. Now they add ads to your site.

Hardcoded link in new version
By , for WP 4.2.2

Really sad that the plugin creator had to add a hardcoded spam link into this plugin.

$html .= '<img src="http://i.imgur.com/hKU0wZd.png" /></div>';
$html .= '<!-- Social Ring Buttons End -->'."\n";

You can edit library.php and remove the lines above to get rid of it!

As of the latest update this plugin includes a spam link. No way to remove it.

Spam! link to unknown website.
By , for WP 4.2.2

I came here because of I've found SPAM links in my all websites.

I've just noticed the link to "SumoMe" appeared to all of my page.
I've try to disable this SPAM link but no way/options to remove it, except I've to edit the code.

I can confirm this is a SPAM behavior, There is No option to disable it in GUI.

Now, Just removed this plugin from all of my sites. And I will tell all of my friends to check their websites too.

If the developer want to stay in this wordpress's society, REMOVE this SPAM and update right now. So some ex-users may decides to re-install your plugin again.
