Wait more for this plugin. Both its installation and management are not too friendly

for Bugs

This is a buggy plugin. I had issues with it on the first day I started using it. As a web developer myself I see some problems with it right away.
First of all you need to scope your css with unique ID just only to your plugin, so it would not affect website's styles or website's styles would not affect your plugin. After installing have some icons broken in buttons, just because plugin uses .fa-icon classes to style not #mySuppaDuppaPlugin .fa-icon.
Second to keep settings of a plugin in shortcode parameters is stupid idea. What if I have 100 pages using plugin and I decided to change social network button? I need to go all over 100 pages and paste new shortcode's parameter. Or use SQL find and replace, which I sure most of users will not do.
And today it just stopped reloading page after G+ sharing so users can't get access to files, and FB not working either. Waste of time and money. And I get 0 plugin updates in more than 6 month, even after release of WP 5.0

you're using the plugin for more than year and you continue to use it even if is so "buddy". In fact your problem is actually that your support has expired.

You have many ways to set Social share icons as a mass way (as Webside Display, Content Display, so one) once a shortcode should be used only on particular cases. So, with one click you can change any showcase all over the website. As a "web developer" is surprising as you didn't noticed that.

Don't use this plugin - It removes the custom site identity so the WordPress logo gets used as the feature image. It fails to deactivate.

Social Share does not change any settings of the website or something related to "identity". Still, it's weird how you claiming about an issue/problem but no support ticket submission for verification which should be the first normal step.

What exactly is the purpose of this review on this case?

for Design Quality

Bellissimo. NE ho provati un paio prima, questo è il migliore sul mercato.

for Feature Availability

Very good and complete plugin. The problem is that you can't style your own elements. You can choose between predefined styles but there's no customizer for a custom stylesheet.

for Customer Support

The set-up and tutorial page is a joke. Literally no help at all.

Great plugin, Great job, would wish I have found you people earlier, but it is never to late to find something great. This is real value for money.

for Other

The Plugin is totally crap. unclear. no widget support only with shortcodes. overloading with a lot of functions that nobody needs..

You're simply out of Support period and instead of renew it you're trying to request those services into alternative ways.
Meanwhile, you've used the plugin for a long time without any issue.

There are some rules and guidelines related to Support services which are mandatory for everyone.

I wont recommend this plugin to anybody who is willing to use it for facebook mobile. The plugin sends your visitors OUT OF THE FACEBOOK MOBILE APP to a new window without session in Chrome forcing the user to RE.LOGIN in order to share the content. Plugin says that goes well with Facebook rules but's not. In fact Facebook policy specifies that such way is agains't their rules because sends the visitors out of its enviroment to another window application making it dangerous or vulnerable to bad practices such stealing data. If you are planning to buy this plugin to maximize your mobile efforts, DON'T DO IT.. is expensive and doesn't work as expected. Is only good for desktop users.

Stops provides a such lies just to get a refund without a valid reason. The Share action is managed exactly like Facebook provides, based on the official script.

The Facebook share action is managed like Facebook recommends and it is exactly the same workflow into any share script/plugin.
Indeed, the plugin may be expensive for someone that tries to use the script for free but definitely not for what it's provides.

for Customizability

Did not work on our website despite of using it as described.
