This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Facebook Plugin: WP Social


The WP Social Plugin is an easy-to-use plugin that allows users to add a custom Facebook Feed widgets to the sidebar, as a widget, or to embed the custom Facebook Feed widget into a Page or Post using the shortcode, of any Public Facebook Page. The WP Social Plugin also allows you to insert a Facebook Like Button widget into the Page, Post, or theme. The WP Social Plugin allows you to add Facebook Events, Photos, and Galleries to your website, too!

WP Social Pro works with Facebook’s Graph API to pull in your posts, comments, photos, videos. Your Facebook posts are each stored as a Custom Post Type, along with their comments, and photos you post on Facebook will be added to your Media Library. WP Social Pro will then periodically poll Facebook’s Graph API, pulling in any new posts, likes, comments, or other meta data.

Supports Any Public Facebook Page

WP Social Pro can connect to any public Facebook page, and show its recent posts on your website. You can connect to your own pages, or you can connect to popular pages who’s content you’d like to share with your visitors (for example, adding the feed of a local news station). You can connect to as many feeds as you like.

Fully Customize Your Facebook Feed

Gone are the days of fighting with the Facebook Social Plugin!

Unlinke the standard Facebook widgets, WP Social Pro gives you full control over the fonts, colors, and style of your Facebook feed. Choose the same font and colors as the rest of your website to help your Facebook feed blend in, or choose from hundreds of Google web fonts to make it stand out!

We also have an setting for you to include your own custom CSS as well, for or you can simply include a stylesheet in your theme directory, and WP Social will automatically include it — either method is great for displaying a custom Facebook Feed widgets. The WP Social Plugin also includes a number of pre-made Feed Themes (more available with Pro), to help get you started with your custom Facebook Feed widgets.

Supports Photos and Videos

The most engaging Facebook posts include a photo or a video, so WP Social Pro includes full support for Photo and Video posts. That means When you post a video to Facebook, it will appear as a playable video right on your website, and photos will click through to their full size versions.

Supports Facebook Events

WP Social Pro includes full supports for events, so when you create a new Event on Facebook, it will automatically appear on your website. Use this to create an Upcoming Events sidebar or make a page showing your future events.

Supports Unlimited Facebook Feeds

WP Social can sync as many public Facebook feeds as you would like. Simply enter the profiles you’d like to sync in the Settings page, and WP Social will take care of the rest.
