Facebook wants to keep it all for themselves
By , for WP 3.8.3

I do have this plugin working on all fronts.
I installed it about a year ago.
The documentation was AWFUL, dreadful, frustrating. Missing 10's of steps in how to install and get it working. For a multi-billion dollar company, they should take more pride in their work.

The plugin should allow both wordpress and facebook comment systems to work simultaneously. It doesn't. Facebook wants everything to itself.
I have posted a couple of times to the support asking how to do this, with no responses.

The part that does work - sharing, posting to Facebook, like, share buttons, recommended posts, works great! The comment system works well too, but again, Facebook wants it all and prevents you from having both comment systems working at the same time.

lack of customization
By ,

1. the comment box width is not suitable for responsive design, unable to set as 100% fluid

2. when i click like or share, the box doesnt display correctly

3. the recommendation bar works fine

4. unable to adjust the like box button margin to the post

Unusuable
By , for WP 3.9.1

As many of these other reviews are noting, this plugin is broken with WP 3.9.1 . I have to say I expected better from Facebook given that the developers responsible for maintaining this plugin probably make six-figure salaries, and because Facebook has historically been a PHP shop (one would assume they have plenty of competent PHP devs there).

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.

Completely incomprehensible for a non-developer

No instructions. No clue.

Updated to 1.3 Comments have disappeared
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's great to have social interaction on your website until you update the plugin and the comment box disappears. Did anyone at Facebook test this before rolling it out? I thought this product was great until the update. Now where is the support?

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!

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.
