Plugin does not support core WordPress functionalities?
By , for WP 3.5.1

What is the need for a plugin if it does not support core WordPress functionalities?
I don't see why an official Plugin from Facebook would not support WordPress comments. I love to make my sites social, but also love to have my comments written to my DB. Unfortunately, this Official Facebook plugin does not have any interaction with my DB, so all my comments are resident on Facebook server, any day Facebook decided they don't like my face, I will automatically loose ALL my comments.

This I find very stressful.
Secondly, cant this plugin be made more easier to enable more non-techie bloggers simplify their lives?

Very Poor not user friendly
By , for WP 3.5

This plugin is very hard to setup. You need to create a Facebook app. I'm not a programmer that's why I use WordPress. Try to create an app with Facebook GOOD LUCK if you have any questions...

It killed my blog
By , for WP 3.5.1

I have a decent server running Ubuntu 12.04 + Nginx + PHP-FPM + WordPress 3.5.1. We use this plugin (version 1.2.3) and at some point performance got terrible, so "request_slowlog_timeout" came in handy.

Guess what:

Worst installation ever
By , for WP 3.5.1

This might either be the best (if you know exactly how to handle it, which I don't) or the worst plugin of all times. The installation procedure is horrible. And the instructions are even more confusing. One would think that the developer is either a sadist or the most inept work-flow designer in the world.

The user should not be forced to wade through this horrible procedure. So I'm putting this app in an early grave.
