Love the module, it was easy to use and very customizable. Would love it if you could add Foursquare and Photobucket to the list of websites. Thanks.

WOW! This is a great module. Easy to install, easy to configure. I can't say enough good things about this and it's FREE!

Hands Down AWESOME!

This module is hands down the best social link and social commenting tool I have used to date. Easy to use, tons of options and does exactly what is claimed. I use it on a few Joomla 2.5 sites and it works perfectly.

Apart from having to ensure that you disable the "Friendly link" which can be bad for SEO, this plugin is very easy to install, has all the features you'd expect, is simple to customise and works well, including on Joomla 2.5.7 installations.

Well done guys, and thanks!

Best social extension

Good job guys..thank you for this module its easiest social presence module there is with lots of options and icons to choose from..and you can download more :)


Very easy extension to operate however I wish it had an update to include a NewsLetter Icon instead of having to use a pre-existing icon such as feed. Also may need an update for pinterest users as well

Good to Go

Being a bit of a Joomla newbie I had a little more trouble than others getting this to fly (mostly my own problems and not that of the extension). Otherwise this extension did exactly what it advertised and does it very well. I'm a fan.

And since the answer isn't here for those who complain about the "hidden link" it just is a Y/N for "Show a Friendly Link" in the Module manager.

Excellent Module

Posted on 17 March 2012

I was looking for something like this, and it looked like about the best of the bunch, but it was only recorded as up to 1.7, and none of the alternatives were any better.

As my site is 2.5.2, I wanted something compatible, but as there was nothing, I figured I would give this one a go.

It installed, and 5 minutes later I have LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter links on my site.

Excellent job !!!!

It's simple and complete extension!

Great work guys!

Extenstion Seemed Promising

But doesn't seem to work with 1.7.3 as the compatibility statement indicates.
