Attempting to add a WordPress plugin to add some functionality can be a time-consuming task. All I wanted was a simple ‘like’ button for Facebook. After reviewing the number of installs (but why don’t they also list uninstalls?), the reviews, the compatibility with your version, support questions and the screenshots, I gave up and went straight to facebook. Every plugin and platform bloated this device to include the logo and header and make it take up too much space. Turns out the best thing to do was to add some script to the page, as described here. Same with Google+.
