Confusing and obfuscated

Installed this, However the use of inline styling makes it nearly impossible to customise or fit with my theme's look and feel. For this reason it's pretty useless.

Good idea, but not perfect

I'd like to use this plugin within Buddypress. But the function that should show a facebook-like teaser of a webpage link to be shared only works for users who have admin rights. Otherwise the preview can be seen, but after clicking on "add link" nothing happens. To normal users this appears like a real bug. I can't tell this to WP MU DEV because before being able to get in contact I'd have to enter my credit card number into their website which I definitely don't want. I'm also missing a better coordination with the oembed function of Buddypress. Normal users will not understand why some (whitelisted) websites show a teaser after merely entering the URL into the message field while other websites need to be shared by the link sharing function of BuddyPress Activity Plus. It would be much better usability if there was some kind of "silent mode": If the message entered into the message field contains a link that is not on the whitelist of oembed BuddyPress Activity Plus could create a teaser out of this link (by reading the OG-Tags, similar to Facebook). This would be much easier to understand for normal users of a Buddypress site.
