    Complete garbage!!! This plugin belongs in the trash!!! Intermittent failures!!! No support!!!! No current valid documentation!!! Unsupported complete junk!!!

    Does not work!!!!!!

    I have spent days trying to figure out why it intermittently drops fanpage access tokens and user access tokens. A complete nightmare!!!!

    Basically if you want to use this on facebook you have to jump through all these hoops and get these stupid access tokens. It works for about 5 minutes then all the tokens break. So basically every time you want to publish to facebook to have to spend 30 minutes reconfiguring the facebook app it makes you create to use this, and deleting re-installing the plugin, and resetting all your access key, and then re-configuring the plugin setting, and re-granting the permissions through faceboook. A complete nightmare!!!!!

    This is supposed to make it easy to post from my blog to my facebook page, but I actually spend about 30 minutes every time just configuring this horrible plugin!!!! If you are just using this for publishing, save yourselves the headaches and do it manually!!!!

    I am a developer with 10+ years experience and this thing is the biggest piece of junk I have ever seen in my life!!!!

    It might have helped if you'd asked the plugin's developer for support before writing this review.

    If it's dropping the tokens for you, then probably you're logging out of Facebook manually. This breaks the connection with the current version of SFC.

    I would recommend using the official Facebook plugin instead. You can find it at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook . It uses a different method to cross-post to Facebook, and while it's slightly harder to configure, it doesn't have the same issue with logouts.

    Wow, what a joke. Why do they even advertise the publishing functionality. This thing should be clearly labeled that it DOES NOT WORK for publishing. What a complete joke. Thanks for wasting DAYS of my time. I can't believe this piece of GARBAGE got a bunch of 5 star reviews. So glad I completely trashed this thing with a 1 star review. Take this thing offline and stop offering it until it actually works.

    l4r3f4c3: Sorry that it doesn't work for you. Feel free to use a different plugin instead.
