Abandoned, do not use
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin was pretty rad but it has been abandoned, no updates for 2 years, it's resource/load heavy. I don't recommend using it for a new site.

Really bad support, no updates
By , for WP 4.1

The features of this plugin is very helpful, but the support is bad, no updates and the shortcodes returning "Warning : illegal string offset script".

Very difficult to use

Works... but not really...
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin looks great, but unfortunately it activated other like/share button plugins that i had tried and since deleted. The result was a post covered in a variety of like and share buttons above, below and on the side. If you have a solution to this I'm all ears, because I liked this plugin.

Very complicated to set up

There is no jump effect or any effect at all
By ,

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

Don't Support Unethical People!
By , for WP 3.5.1

Do You Like People Who Lie to You?

I DON'T Like Them.

There are 2 HIDEN Links below Floating Bar.

All other plugins give you the right to remove those links if you do not want them.
But not this one.
This one tries to take 2 credits of you without your knowledge.
... also you can't set the horizontal distance of the Floating Bar.

>> Don't Use This Plugin! Don't Support Unethical People <<

If You Want Floating + Horizontal Bars >> Try this Plugins Instead:

1.) Digg Digg
... or
2.) AA's Digg Digg Alternative
3.) Really simple Facebook Twitter share buttons

... or just search for "social share plugins wordpress"

No Drop Down Menus
By , for WP 3.4.2

This plugin could be rated with 5 or 1 stars. I gave it a 1 as on any site I place it on that has drop down menus, they no longer work. The regular menus work fine but when you hover over a drop down menu, nothing happens. The drop downs don't drop.

So, if you have a site that needs drop downs, then this is NOT the plugin for you.

If you have a site that you will only use a single level of menu items with no drop downs, then this can work for you well.

As a full time website developer, I have tried this with four different themes and get the same issue with all of them.

Good Luck...

COMPLETELY broke my site
By , for WP 3.4.2

This plugin is the only one that broke my site. Completely broken. Hope it stops interrupting good theme's CSS. Disabled all text on navigation bar, etc... Disabled all plugins, was able to recreate the error by re-enabling the plugin. This has happened several times over the years, I am done. Will find a better professional solution that doesn't break sites overnight.
