Ultimate Facebook slowing down the site

http://www.webpagetest.org/result/131011_40_WC8/1/details/
Ultimate Facebook is slowing down my site pretty significantly. Also making 3x requests. Any insights in to how to amend these issues?

Any other suggestions for speeding up the site, outside of a new server are greatly appreciated.
Already using cloudflare & w3totalcache. Also have shrunk the photos for the most part. I know that google fonts is also crushing my time but feel free to drive it home and offer suggestions.

Thank you!

    Hey there Dylan,

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums.

    Ultimate facebook is a bridge between your site and facebook so if you don't need the facebook connection, you would have to stop using the plugin as if its activated, it would establish a connection between both IMO.

    I'm wondering if it is any of the settings.
    Maybe I have the API active more than once.

    Have you got multiple Facebook plugins activated ? Perhaps something in your theme or any other plugin has got a Facebook setting ?

    I have also called in our lead developer @Vladislav for his expert advice on this one as well :slight_smile:

    In my honest opinion, I have never liked caching on my site. I have used hosting Optimized for WordPress and never had any issue related to the speed of the site. They work well.
