I added Jetpack to my site as I like the social buttons and ability to post automatically to our accounts when creating a new site article. It seems to work fine although I am a bit worried it may slow the site down. Is Jetpack fine with ‘GP’ or should I use a plugin for the social sharing buttones?

My Experience is that Jetpack slows down my website. I would adding the right individual plugins as needed – without Jetpack.

JetPack works fine with GP, some issues do arise with lazy loading and image optimization as this has a habit of conflicting with any theme using masonry or infinite loading.
Overall JetPack is very bloated and will slow down your site. In your case it would make sense as Ender suggests to just add plugins specific to your needs.

And if you are concerned about site speed, I would recommend you try either of these plugins:

Jetpack slows down your site. I have been using jetpack for years. But after my friend’s recommendation to delete jetpack from site, I gained a big boost on my site’s speed. Speed is one big factor in terms of your site on-page SEO. So, if you care about that, I would recommend you delete jetpack on your site.June 26, 2019 at 9:42 am #942094Morgan
In my research installing Jetpack without disabling the modules *you don’t need* will indeed slow down your site. Yet, everything I’ve seen written recently seems to be based on the *old* jetpack (fair enough, it was pretty bad), yet now it’s better written, you can disable any and all modules (and there’s quite a few useful ones in one plugin) you don’t need, and doing so is pretty snappy (sure, if you’re number crunching other options might win, but it’s not like most infer).June 26, 2019 at 10:03 am #942112LeoStaffCustomer Support

Almost a year later would you use the tools inside jetpack or separately, like SEO and image optimizer.July 24, 2020 at 5:09 pm #1375372LeoStaffCustomer Support
I’ve never been a fan of Jetpack.

Short and sweet answer:
If you want to get fastest speeds possible, go individual plugins *with* testing, or custom.
If close enough is good enough jetpack is fine.
