“Most social sharing plugins lack important functionality and don’t give you the ability to leverage social proof. Easy Social Share Buttons is the first social plugin that has the features I need. And most importantly it allows me to avoid negative social proof by only displaying share counts after a pre-selected number. The support is amazing too.“
