SEAO review
Recommended by The People Space on July 30th, 2018 at 12:12pm

Being non IT literate and new to the SE platform, we couldn't have moved our business forward without SEAO's superb, timely and friendly support and great plug ins. Rajdip, Ritu, Amit and team have been excellent in understanding our needs and translating them into reality – as well as showing great patience towards us (demanding) novices. 5 star service!

Great plugin
Recommended by Alessio Rogna on July 25th, 2018 at 8:33am

SEAO is definitely the best company out there when it comes to SE plugins. The staff is very kind and the programmers develop great products, as this freebie. I've been working with them for many years and I'm always satisfied with their products, services and support.

Great Plugin Great Company
Recommended by Marc Ceyton on July 25th, 2018 at 7:44am

Nice free plugin - SEAO delivers great plugins all round. It's the most professional of all the plugin companies and all my plugins are only SEAO

Marc Ceyton updated their review on August 7th, 2018 at 2:02pm

this is not a real review that I did - I was coerced and blackmailed to leave this review so that SEAO would do the work that I'm paying for each month but they have not done any support on their shitty faulty plugins. They will not fix basic things that you have paid good money for.....save yourselves DO NOT USE THIS SHITTY COMPANY

Marc Ceyton updated their review on August 10th, 2018 at 2:31pm

.Let me say this in defence of SEAO - once they saw this negative comment they really seemed to care . Suddenly they were more responsive then they have ever been, they worked fast and diligently through all issues .

Outstanding service
Recommended by Jan-Eric Nyman on July 24th, 2018 at 2:23pm

Having seen the SE system evolve over the years there is no questions about the SocialEngineAddon team being the best at making great add-ons to this software and system. They know their stuff inside and outside. I am pleased to be working on a continuous basis with them for all my future projects as well. As well as being very skilled they also deliver an outstanding customer service.

SocialEngineAddons, WOW, building great products require innovation, perseverance, teamwork and flawless execution. hence, this is only one part of the picture.

Let's talk about customer service; SocialEngineAddons is second to none in customer service; our company is working for two years with multiple endeavors, we always have been pleased with the fast reply and courtesy of the Team, willing to go beyond the extra mile in order to satisfy demands. Talking about commitment, try to find a company which is more dedicated, no Sir, from management to development and all other services and products offered; I would state, top of the line.

Icing on the cake, reasonable pricing to sweeten-up your bottom line. Congratulations, team. Keep-up the good work. Highly recommended.

Engagement which the user can feel
Recommended by David Hirschfeld on July 23rd, 2014 at 5:18pm

Users want to show off how popular they and their generated contents are. This gives them a deeper relationsship with the community. This plugin delivers a variety of possible widgets and options that makes it easy for you to serve this need. Had no issues with the plugin and as it comes for free this should be a no-brainer to install.

Best Free Plugin Ever!
Recommended by Jonathan Coombes on June 13th, 2014 at 12:27pm

This is a must-have plugin to facilitate engagement and interaction between members and content on your site.

Best of all - Its completely free!

Simply amazing and once again thank you for developing plugins for Social Engine. Without your products, the SE platform will merely be another php community script.

Keep up the great work.

Thumbs Up
Recommended by Stacie Stopen on June 4th, 2014 at 1:59pm

Always good to have, a like button

A free must-have
Recommended by Daniel Scholz on May 18th, 2014 at 1:19pm

Free but great - and even for this free plugin I got support. What a great customer support from SEAO. I like to like it :-)

must have plug in
Recommended by Brandon Chaffinch on May 5th, 2014 at 4:53am

this is a great way to engage users.. As we are all part of large social networks and we like and share many things.. we sometimes want to see all of the things we've liked in one place especially what people have liked about what we've posted. This plug in allows your users to do just that.. see the most popular likes, who likes your posts and who likes your profile. You cant do that on the big boy sites thats for sure! Awesome and must have plugin.

More than a simple thumbs up system.
Recommended by Donald Thomas on February 6th, 2014 at 7:10pm

Well you see a like system for free and you immediately think, "throw away plugin from a developer who has nothing to lose". But since its free, you say well I have nothing to lose to try it out. Well let me finish the story with this free plugin. You install it and after UNDERSTANDING the features and more importantly HOW to use them you switch from nothing to lose to EVERYTHING to gain. Seriously!

Any developer as well as social engine itself can make a simple up down/ happy sad system. What this plugin does is give you extra useful widgets and tools to support those like actions. Literally there are dedicated pages and links that each and every user will able to use and keep track concerning each and every like interaction performed on your site. This supports two essential needs that your site to be successful. Engagement & Utility referring to the usefulness of the accompanying features.

When I put it on my site I wanted to integrate it deeper into my site and I needed custom work done. SEAO not only did this custom work making the plugin completely unique to my site, they really took the time to understand what I was trying to accomplish and I appreciate that. Think about it. Who writes a review for a free plugin? Answer: A very greatful site owner who feels indebted to such an awesome Development Team. It is rare that you find developers who are dependable and top notch with literally EVERYTHING they do. Yes this plugin is great but the Team is so much greater and that is really why I am leaving this review.

Best Free Plugin
Recommended by Michael DAmico on March 14th, 2013 at 3:44pm

Just when you think Social Engine Add ons can't get any better, they go ahead and give you this free likes plugin. This free plugin makes your social network much more diverse. Everyone likes to click like buttons and because of this your content get distributed to a lot more members looking for what others like.

The likes page with separate tabs provided make this more than just a simple plugin it is actually a spot my members enjoy going to daily. You can put a like button on pretty much anything you want.

This plugin has increased activity on my site and all for free, and this is not one of those other free plugins that you might of downloaded from other developers only to see it was garbage and then had to go through the hassle of removing everything associated with it. NO, this is a high quality plugin that they really should be charging for If you already deal with SE Add Ons and you have the core plugin installed than you might as well get this free likes plugin.

I love the widgets provided which really come in handily especially if you do not want to have a likes page in the menu bar. You will not be disappointed with this plugin….Oh and they update it too. Thanks again Social Engine Add ones! You are my #1!

Best Free Likes Plugin for SE!
Recommended by Lahu Gawade on February 28th, 2013 at 7:49am

This is a beautiful free plugin with all the customization available, now we can see what is liked the most on the site and it also helps to increase interactivity on the site.

Recommended by Abdeslam MEKOUAR on February 26th, 2013 at 11:30am

The Likes plugin and widgets are the most heavily used in my social network and they are really helping me grow my community. People love expressing themselves using it and it really helps to bring the community together.

free and great working, dont see that often, great job

Go Beyond
Recommended by William Sheets on February 20th, 2013 at 4:31pm

Why use the standard liking system when you can use this excellent addon for free? Liking is a viral mechanism for social networking and Socialengineaddons has done a fine job or giving your community the ability to share with the simple click of a button.

Very useful!
Recommended by Karlie Cole on February 4th, 2013 at 1:16am

Another great plug-in from SocialEngine Add-Ons. Very full feature list and it does what it says without glitches. This team does awesome work and their support is top-notch!

Very Good Plugin
Recommended by Jesus Garcia on January 31st, 2013 at 7:03pm

If you have bought the Advance Facebook Plugin you must have this one. It gives your network more connection with Facebook. All the things you "like" are going to be in Facebook so you are going to have a lot of visitors or new members in your network. Very usefull and very easy to install. Beside it, SocialEngineAddons is always there helping you in case you have any problem or you dont know how to do something of it. I love this plugin and i recommend everyone to have it.

Recommended by Gudmundur Jonsson on January 14th, 2013 at 11:53pm
