Well, it does what it's supposed to, I guess
By ,

I have been trying for a while to find a social plugin with a floating bar that just works. And to the developer's credit this one does.

However, it has the most unhelpful and confusing admin interface I've come across...

To get access to the main plugin settings you have to click the 'Start Using WP Socializer" button on the bottom of the Admin landing page. If you don't do this you won't be able to adjust templates or social buttons visibility. I actually had to Google how to only show the floating bar... because it never occurred to me that a plugin dev would hide their settings.

Furthermore, the styling is significantly different from WP's Admin standards and is inconsistent with the rest of the WP Admin backend.

I'm using the thing because it works, but I've wasted half an hour of productive time just trying to figure out how to make it do what I want.

Extremely powerful and heavily customizable
By , for WP 3.8

My first impression was "this is the most confusing user interface ever!"

But looking past that, this is the most customizable and powerful social sharing plugin I've seen (after putting countless hours into trying about 10 other social sharing plugins for my site over the past few months).

Besides the fact that these buttons are often already buggy, I use a custom theme that doesn't seem to like social sharing popup menus so the option from WP Socializer to open the sharing link on a new page is golden.

In short, lots of customization and a huge range of services. No bugs that I've seen so far which is rare for a social sharing plugin...

Highly recommended at this time.

There is no jump effect or any effect at all

I had looked for the options "jump effect" or "magnify effect" ...impossible to find. The plugin interface is not really user friendly..
