    Downloaded in order to publish to my Google+ account but I must buy and add-on. Don't waste your time. Free version is completely useless

    Works great for me for a while now. Did you contact their support? He's always quick to lend a hand, even if he has to go in and set it up for you.

    Hi Bradley, didi you read my post?
    I don't need support. I simply won't gonna use it. I won't pay for something that was offered as free.

    What exactly was offered as "Free"? It's clearly said in the plugin description that Google+ is supported if you have third party library.

    Why exactly are you blaming us for the lack of Google+ free API? All networks that have free and open APIs are available for free in our plugin.

    Google+ don't have API that we could use.

    We have rely on the unofficial third party library that needs to be maintained. This library is not free.

    As soon as Google creates it's own API, we drop that library and include Google+ support for free as any other network.

    Hi Ciro, did you read my post?

    It is there in bold. Again:

    Google+ don't have FREE API that we could use.

    There is no free API for Google+. It doesn't exist yet. You can blame Google for that, they are too busy with something else or they just think it's good enough without it.

    We have to use unofficial third party library. This library is not free. It costs $49.

    As soon as Google creates it's own FREE API, we drop that library and include Google+ support for free as any other network.

    So can you explain why you called "Free version useless" and give the lowest possible rating to the plugin that could post to 10 different social networks including the most popular such as Facebook and Twitter absolutely FREE??

    The reason is simple, fake advertising. Quoted from you first paragraph at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/social-networks-auto-poster-facebook-twitter-g/

    In order to avoid comments like mine you should remove Google plus from your description. That was the ONLY reason that I decided to test your plugin

    This plugin automatically publishes posts from your blog to your Social Network accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+(Google Plus), Blogger, Delicious, Diigo, Stumbleupon, LinkedIn, Pinterest, WordPress, and Tumblr profiles and/or pages. The whole process is completely automated. Just write a new post and either entire post or it's announcement with back link will be published to all your configured social networks.

    Regards

    Google+ (with third party library) - Autopost to your profile or business page. Ability to attach your blogpost to Google+ post.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/social-networks-auto-poster-facebook-twitter-g/

    There is no false advertising here. If you do not like the plugin, use another.

    Where is the fake advertising? The plugin does publish posts from your blog to Google+. It's not a fake.

    The problem is that you automatically assumed that it does it for free. Do you see the word "Free" in the quoted text? No, you don't because it's not there.

    More then that - later in the description it's clearly said that you need a third party library to post to Google+.
