Took while to figure out how to use
By , for WP 3.5.1

Spent quite a long time wondering how to use this and the widgets but finally got it working. I like the result a lot.

not impressed
By , for WP 3.5.1

I've been using this for a while, and the last couple of months, the plugin has failed me...

The social publisher function is the one i need the most, and it doesn't work!
In the latest version i can't even see it when i go to the plugin settings, the "Social Publisher" is simple not there!

And when i has it set up, it would not post to my facebook application. i was lucky to get it to do it once when i redid all the settings in the plugin, but after that it failed again.

Another thing that could be very useful, is the ability to get notified when a user has commented on a post on wordpress, it could be done via email or even facebook notifications.

Single Person Made Better Plugin Than WordPress+Facebook?
By , for WP 3.4.2

Disappointing.
I can really user only follow button. The most wanted feature "Mention" is completely unusable.
Collaboration of Facebook and WordPress produces worse plugin than other available. OMG!

It just doesn't work!
By , for WP 3.4.2

Very disappointing as I have tried and tried and could never get the social publishing feature to work. This is such a waste of time! I could have given it a zero star if I had the option.

5 Stars for open graph markup
By , for WP 3.5

5 stars just because it provides what I need. Some things don't work, like other reviews say, and that's where the "Jetpack" plugin comes in.

Social Publisher doen't work.
By , for WP 3.5

The Latest version of the plugin simply ceases to work. The Recomdation bar is irritating with its behaviour. Makes your site feel like a date site and the Social Publisher is just like a show piece that never works.

Should be better.
By , for WP 3.5

Set up is not really simple ... but that's okay. It is doable and once it's set up it should work ...

But it doesn't. The plugin is currently not completely working with WordPress. And as is typical from some software developers ... there is very little communication from them and we as users have no idea if they are working on it, ignoring it, or even if they are aware of problems.

I will give it an average rating because in general, most of the features are working. ONE very important feature is not working right now and that is the box that show's your facebook feed on your website. I am very annoyed that this is not working, since this is the feature my CLIENT most wants.

won't work properly
By , for WP 3.5

Not quite simple to configure. After you install it, you have a lot of work to make it work.
There's no explicit instructions. A lot o features are not working or they are very glitchy.
My publish action was not even acceptep beacause they say that i have to many videos on my blog. WTF?!
Sometimes it's working, sometimes is not.
The shortcodes for like and send button are not working. When i put the code somewhere it shows like simple text.

Can't post to timeline, great apart from that
By , for WP 3.4.2

This is a bit of a pig to setup to be honest, instructions are poor regarding steps required over in facebook developer world especially if (like me) you've never setup a facebook app. I've got it working for everything except posting to my own timeline - though it posts just fine to my Page.
