Get instant Facebook shares for your WordPress posts
I had seen the high reviews and was expecting a lot. I have been using it now for the last day and I keep seeing the same articles over and over again. So it does not appear to me that many people are actually using it or I would expect to see a larger assortment of articles. Also, many of the blog articles are kind of spammy so it's not something I would care to 'like' anyway.
A couple of suggestions:
1) need way more articles to choose from for 'liking' content. In the last day I keep seeing the same 25-30 articles, most of which I do not feel are worthy of 'liking'.
2) It would be really helpful to be able to view 'categories' of articles so i could at least whittle down my selections that I wanted to view. I realize that's hard to do probably if you only have 25-30 to choose from but if this does get picked up by more people, I would suggest trying to give people the option of viewing categories of articles so they can at least try to 'like' things that are either interesting or related to their site without having to scroll through a ton of them one at a time.
Downgrading my score of '2' to a '1' after another half hour of scrolling through articles. 90% of the articles were from the same two sites - both of which had a Page Rank of "0" and were pretty spammy looking. Was logged into two different sites using the plugin to test and though I saw content from the two sites mentioned above, I never once saw content from one of the sites I was testing. It's a long process of going through mostly poor and limited content and since I kept seeing the same content over and over it makes me wonder if the two sites I was testing for were even really in the list. I never saw content from either one of them (despite seeing the two spammy sites' content over and over again). It's almost as if it's a plugin to promote just a couple of spammy sites and their articles. Maybe they paid extra money and that's why they are showing so much but that kind of defeats the purpose then. Just my two cents (or two dollars at this point).
What else is there to say, I acquired 250 shares in 3 days for free. This is truly a great product to pump up your site's appearance in count index.
I am actually considering upgrading to the pro version to get more likes in other social networks.
There are no negatives as of now that I can report on.
I gave it a shot with this and I think that the concept is brilliant, but it could be better.
Each campaign consume points, I believe 4 points per share and you get 50 points to start. When it is depleted, you will need to share other people's post to earn points so that you can promote again.
If everyone were to purchase points, who will share them?
Now I know that not everyone can afford to purchase points, therefore, some will resort to sharing. There is probably a large percentage of people who would "share" than purchase.
Overall, the concept is good. If you want to know the quality of share whether or not the user interact with it, just look at Google Analytic info.
Great concept, breeze to set up.
Well worth considering for your website needs.
Perfect concept, I love this plugin!
Awesome plugin that's super easy to set up and use. Nice features and I love the referrals to my site.
I was surprised at the ease of use of this plugin. I set the plugin for a maximum of 9 shares but because I happened to have a hot topic I ended up with 24 shares (most likely from the leverage of the first 9 shares)
I also like the fact that it was very easy to pick posts to share to earn points to use for shares although you can also buy points.
This plugin works great and the ability to get my website content out there more efficiently and through means I would otherwise not have access to is a HUGE asset.
Awesome plugin so far, liking the features and referrals to my site.
