Improve the appearance and ranking of WordPress Posts, Pages, and eCommerce Products in Google Search and social website shares
Out of the box with almost no configuration, I have good looking Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ social media buttons on pages and posts of my flying club web site at http://www.hawkflyingclub.org. The plugin appears not just to add social media buttons to pages and posts, but appears to add the Open Graph and Twitter meta information automatically to each page and post.
In the end, the only configuration after activation required was
I was initially confounded by the fact that the Facebook button did not appear on my staging copy of the web site on my localhost web server, but it appeared without incident on the web host's server. I never did figure out what was going on there.
In the course of goofing around with the plugin, I did have to hit the "clear all caches" button that appears on the various OpenGraph settings pages for my changes to appear, and clearing my browser cache also seemed necessary.
I use this plugin mainly for Open Graph and Twitter Cards support on my blog, and it does the job better than any other plugin of this type. Frequently updated and improved. Definitely worth purchasing the Pro version IMHO. The plugin author is very responsible to support requests.
Over the years we have tried every plugin available to handle FBog data, but this is the only one that delivered excellent results and wasn't too complicated to set-up for someone who isn't a developer. Even better than the plugin is the fast support from a developer that clearly cares about his product and how it interacts with other plugins/themes. Great work!
I had been looking for a plugin like this unsuccessfully for over a year. I tried over a dozen plugins, some alone, some in tandem - but NONE of them come close to providing the completeness and flexibility of NGFB Open Graph+. Did I mention it is also faster than any of the other plugins I tried?
Before I stumbled upon Jean's great plugin I had settled for using Jetpack for similar functionality. The Jetpack had a MUCH larger footprint and took up nearly half of my server resources just to use the Sharing feature - it didn't do half the job half as well as NCFB OG+.
I purchased the $20 Pro version and was happy to do it, I would've paid more. I appreciate that it isn't a subscription price either, just a one time purchase - WELL worth it. Even the free version was better than anything I had used before, so do yourself a favor and give it a shot.
Thanks for the great plugin Jean!
I've tried many of these and this one is the easiest to install and most effective using meta data for all the top social channels. WORTH the $20 upgrade to PRO if you are serious about results.
I had a social plugin working that looked nice with 'sexy' buttons etc. All was well until we noticed it was full of errors, using https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug, including FaceBook not finding the images on our pages when a user went to share a page.
I was using NextGen gallery - and came across this plugin.
Fixed most issues upon install - and with a post in the forum, JS (the author) quickly had all issues resolved.
I upgraded to the Pro version, and I feel it adds features that make any situation work fine.
In future I will install on all sites requiring Open Graph.
Let me gush here for a second because this dev deserves it.
This is not only a comprehensive plugins, who's free version has more features than most "full" plugins of this kind, it also does practically everything automatically.
And that is not even the best thing about it. This plugin has one of these amazing devs that cares so much, he is on top of the support forum and does his best (and amazingly so) to solve any bug or issue that you might encounter.
We need more devs and more plugins like this.
I tried just about every Open Graph Meta Tag plugin out there, and each one was missing a key feature or two. This one is comprehensive and complete, super easy to use, and works flawlessly: Customizable Open Graph Meta Tags for beautiful post titles, meta descriptions, thumbnail images and videos to share on all of the major platforms. The back-end has detailed descriptions for all options and the developer's support is outstanding. You can tell that he takes pride in his work.
Lots of features and control over display and content. Built in tools make it easier to set up and adjust
Unique plugin, good support. I use it on many WP sites.
Thanks and cheers.
