There's a huge range of available platforms already built in. This is the simplest way to encourage users to share your pages. A must have!
Ease of use
Couldn't be easier. Install, publish, choose the platforms. Boom! Done.
Excellent. Bear in mind that this is a free extension, but I have had better support for this than some paid extensions!
So simple, that it's not needed. And support is very responsive.
I used this to: I've used this on multiple sites and it has quickly become a "must install up front" on every new site. It's very functional, looks great, and is easy to use. AND IT'S FREE!!! Grab it before the developer realizes what a goldmine it is!

nice and easy!

Does what was needed (show configurable Social Share buttons in a neat and responsive way).
Ease of use
Very easy to install and setup, not too many options (appreciated).
Very nice and prompt support by email. Some quick back and forth to solve a caching issue. Thank you, Bernhard! ?
It took me a while (and Bernhards support) to find out that I have to switch off caching in the module, could be mentioned in documentation
I used this to: what it was designed for: share my content in social networks! Makes it very easy to spread my articles on different social natworks. Will see, if my users will do that too.
Owner's reply: Thanks Stefan :-)
A hint on how to deal with Cache issues is already added to the documentation.
You can use included social sharing sources very easily. I first tested and didn't find any bug.
Ease of use
I Could not imagine easier than that. Just done it with a couple of simple clicks.
Because it is so easy, you almost don't need any support. But Bernhard Woehrlin responds to your commends as soon as possible on his website
Although there is a well explained documentation on the website, because it is so easy, you almost don't need any.
I used this to: I used this for a couple of sites letting people share the current page. The only thing to decide for you is the position of the module.

Very good
