Worst. SOftware. Ever.
By , for WP 4.5.2

If I could give this software a zero, I would. It does not function as advertised. When I purchased the "latest" version (MarcoPolo 3.0) Facebook integration was broken and it took several weeks of writing to the author with no response before I finally got an answer and then several more weeks before a new version was released. And still the software didn't work. Add to that, that when I bought the software, and had an issue with PayPal payment, I got an immediate response.

DO NOT USE this software at all.

Works, but you'll give yourself a headache
By , for WP 4.2.2

Let's get this straight: there's no support at all for this plugin.

The plugin works, IF you know how to set up Cronjobs. If you can't, you won't be able to get this set up. Period. If you can, it's a bit of a headache, but you can get it working.

The free version only has three networks - Twitter, and I think Flickr and maybe Youtube? Notably, NOT Facebook. If you want anything else, you need to buy the premium for 50EUR, which supposedly includes a cron thingy (which doesn't work) and support (which doesn't happen).

So if you're happy with just the free bits and can set up a cron yourself, have at 'er. Otherwise, save yourself the trouble and find another plugin.

It's not working with Firmtheme
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have tried the free version, and it is not working well with the Firmtheme.

Any version works..

I feel very disappointing because of this plugin. It seems to be great, and it is all I need. But I tried to download different version and it doesn't compatible with Buddypress (the admin panel disappears.. :/)

Extremely useful
By , for WP 3.9

This plugin gives your buddypress/social networking site some very cool features. I run a charity website that has a small online community, they all love this cause it makes it so easy to share their youtube videos.

It works really well too, i love how easy it is to setup.

Greatly improved

Great plugin.

I can't say how much better this runs, in comparison to the disastrously bad shape it was in a year ago.

Excellent, almost too good
By , for WP 3.8.1

Works like a dream, although you could say it works too good as I'd prefer it not to take historical posts and add them to my feed (instagram) but it is still a great plugin and very beneficial to the members of my site.

Love it

Great idea behind this plugin. It is just what I am looking for.

Twitter is working
By , for WP 3.8.1

Hi,

I am using this plugin (free version) over a year and it's working for me.

Lack of options, support and development makes it 4 stars.

Great plugin with no compromise
By , for WP 3.8.1

Just updated to a newer version. Loved it from the start... try it yourself and then judge it. Please go through the instructions, so you can use it to make a best social network :)

I am running Buddystream from last 1.5 years. Just missing the facebook from free edition... but still loved it.

5 Star for Author and a great support they offer.
5 Star for the easy to use.
6 Star for the Plugin <3
