"A Needed Software for Any Website Owner"

What do you like best?

I like that it makes it so easy for readers to share my blog posts and that I can customize what it says and how it looks. I also like that it has other features like related posts feature.

What do you dislike?

It stopped showing the number of Twitter shares, I am on the free plan so not sure if it's working for the paid version.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have no sharing buttons on your website content then this is a great free option.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes my content on my blog easily shareable which helps me build my audience.

"The social share functions are great, the related content adverts could be a lot better."

What do you like best?

* It was relatively easy to add the Shareaholic module to my Drupal 7 website. It does, however, take some added server configuration which my (shared) hosting company were happy to carry out.

* I like how it displays the social share buttons depending on which theme block you want to use it in.

* I also like the sliding share buttons I have implemented on the left of the page.

What do you dislike?

* I really do not like the related content links to other websites.

* Most often they are completely irrelevant and somewhat bring the overall 'ambience' of the site down.

* I do not like seeing them on other sites either, they are distracting, of low quality (mostly) and unnecessary. I do however realise they are a revenue attracting tool but even that doesn't change my mind.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Watch for the related and promoted content settings and the advertisements that are shared as part of the experience.

I find that they are often of low quality and I don't use that function for that reason. If they were more tastefully screened I would be happy to implement it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

* I needed dynamic share buttons facilities and Shareaholic does not let you down in that department.

* They work very well with my chosen responsive theme across all devices.

* You can place them where you want them to be in relation to your content types in Drupal 7.

* At this stage, there is no Drupal 8 version available which is something I hope they implement very soon as I am also developing a D8 website.

"They've turned into a joke"

What do you like best?

No support, ignored when contacting them on Twitter. It's great!

What do you dislike?

A year ago, everything was fine. Support tickets were being answered, earnings were being added to accounts and being paid out. But since December it has all gone downhill -

Earnings have stopped being added to accounts, people have complained about not being paid out their earnings, and worst of all - There is no support whatsoever for free users, as all support tickets now go IGNORED. I sent a support ticket over a month ago and I'm still waiting!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They have social buttons, that's good I guess. But if you want to use Shareaholic to monetize your site, then DON'T. Because you will never see a single payment.

"Works Well, Looks Great"

What do you like best?

This plugin works well, lets your readers share your content with ease and it even suggests your visitors to read other articles you wrote in the past (related posts). I really like the share function as it looks nice and keeps them on my site when sharing.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the 3rd party links. They choose trashy links that don't fit my brand or are even remotely similar to my posts. I don't want to see shark attacks and weird photos under my DIY posts.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Shareaholic solves a traffic and time-on-site problem For the most part, it keeps user on your website and shows them more links to other pages on your site. It also has easy share links to social media and beyond.
