This plugin is the extension of the popular Facebook Like and Share plugin and it allows the user to share your content with friends on Facebook, Twitter, Google, Linkedin or Pinterest.
2. There is sufficient documentation to get it working quickly.
3. It's updated regularly (at least in our experience).
4. There are a large range of options - it is worth spending the time to understand what they are and how they affect the display of these share buttons.
5. Consider donating to the developer - we just did!
We have used this plugin on several websites and for our non-technical clients it's made their life very easy.
I just ask and hope that developer will focus that future releases will be about making it faster (if possible) :) and resist the urge to clutter with other options.
We had enough of mega-ultra-stuffed things like AddThis and many others that will add tons of not needed code to a website.
My best regards and appreciations goes to this developer! Nice job!
But... Many social media nowaday allow to comments with more than facebook. Let's say that this is the only lack this plugin has but if you need simplicity and no fuzz! THIS IS PERFECT!
One of the things I don't like, is that any time you make a minor change to an article, all the likes and shares disappear. I suppose the same happens to comments, although I haven't tested that because I don't want comments on my site. I tend to change articles for a while after I've published them. That means that every time I change even just metadata, I loose all the cool thumbs ups! I understand this from a business logic perspective: It isn't the exact same article people voted for anymore, but I'd certainly like it to be different!
A minor problem I've encountered is that sometimes the article picture isn't picked up, and sometimes the article meta description isn't picked up when sharing. Cancelling the share and retrying a few times seems to do the trick however.
Over all, a good extension!
there's only 2 minor thing the author of the plugin show focus on developing on the next release.
> There should be an option to hide facebook send button.
> Twitter share button picks up the category title instead of article, on the category view.
