What in God's name are they thinking?
By , for WP 3.5.1

Unless you're more interested in Facebook app development than in actually using your WP site or interacting with human beings, WALK AWAY. Delete this plug-in, and hug your loved ones. The only way to make this thing work is to teach yourself to navigate the trainwreck that is the Facebook Developers site, and to keep on coming back to it each time Facebook breaks the custom app you spent so much of your time banging your head against the keyboard trying to figure out how to make it work. In particular, if you want to use the feature that posts your WP articles as updates on FB, you will find it less time-consuming and frustrating to simply post those FB updates manually. A carefully crafted piece of software can save you lots of time in the long run, but this is a half-baked mess, and will have the opposite effect.

Terribly unintuitive and confusing to set up
By ,

Do yourself a favor and use the Add Link to Facebook plugin instead.

You still have to set up a Facebook app, which is confusing in itself, but at least the Add Link to Facebook plugin is easy to understand and links up to your FB App easily.

After trying unsuccessfully for hours with the "Official" Facebook plugin, I was able to start publishing blog posts to a Facebook page with Add Link to Facebook plugin within a few minutes.

Maybe Facebook should just stick to completely changing their unbelievably convoluted and confusing development tools every few monts.

Start Confuse but Works!
By , for WP 3.5.2

It is a pain in the as* put Facebook comments, but this plugin works fine. You must have a heroku account: https://www.heroku.com/ and install the plugin in WP with Facebook Developers, make you APP and this will integrate with your WordPress. But you must have a good and confindent WP theme to do that.

Bricked my Blog
By , for WP 3.5.2

Installation of plugin went fine, I'll give it one star for that. But after activating version 1.4 of this plugin my blog went offline immediately. So I'm afraid that's all the stars it's going to get from me. Browser window showed some kind of permission error involving incorrect paths to php files in my. Could't even log in. Had to use ftp to get into the plugins folder on the server and delete this facebook plugin to get the site back online again.

So as far as my experience with this plugin goes, it has at least one serious bug: It can cripple your blog.

Stopped working
By , for WP 3.5.1

Latest update has stopped the plug-in from working. Or has the ability to post to directly to Facebook been taken away? In "Facebook Settings" --> "General" I copy in my App ID and App Secret then hit the save changes button. The fields go blank and do not accept my info. This was working!
There is no longer an option on WordPress posts to send to Facebook. The Facebook Likes/Send/Follow are working.

This sucks
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's just really hard for me to figure out the FB apps stuff. Within WordPress it's fine, but the fact that you have to go to the FB apps developer page to make things functional is just driving me crazy. I go there and I feel like I get stuck in loops:(
