The Problem is that facebook change the json, and you can fix the problem by edit this file wp-content/plugins/posts-social-shares-count/classes/share.count.php and go to function pssc_facebook and change the code inside it with this code $json_string = $this->file_get_contents_curl( 'https://graph.facebook.com/?id='.$this->url ); $json = json_decode( $json_string, true ); return isset( $json['share']['share_count'] ) ? intval( $json['share']['share_count']) : 0;

... slows down wordpress. had to deacitvate it. nothing more to say. google+ doesn't work, twitter doesn't work anymore because of its api. now facebook is gone because of api 2.7.

Does what it says it will do. Had a small issue with cURL under a specific server setup, but otherwise it works great!

Was looking high and low for a total share counter with caching support, and this plugin was definitely the most helpful!
