Not enough help
By , for WP 4.1.1

How to configure facebook APP to post automatically in the facebook page is not explain, it's so complicated.

I think it's more simple to use directly PHP SDK than this plugin.

Can't Authenticate or add FB account to WordPress
By ,

Like the countless other 1 star ratings, I'm unable to to do things.

First, in the "Social Publisher" link, there is an "x" next to step 3, which is titled "Authenticate with Facebook to allow your Facebook application to post to your Timeline or Page on your behalf when a post is published"

Second, I cannot "Add a Facebook account to your WordPress account".

When I attempt the 2nd option, it opens a pop-up window, like it is actually doing something, but then it immediately closes without any helping message at all.

The Facebook App documentation is useless, as is the documentation and support for this plugin. I've wasted a good 3 or 4 hours of my day trying to make this thing work, and I consider myself rather technically inclined. But I really have no interest in digging through the code of the plugin to figure what it's supposed to be doing, and what it is not doing.

The share button only show half the pop up window

This Facebook plugins is great, but the share button only show half the pop up window so is useless. It gives open meta graph errors with Yoast SEO

Total piece of crap
By ,

First Facbook kicked out all other well working plugins by absurd resrictions on the API and then they don't care to produce a well working plugin.

I did expect this to happen but still its annoying.

Abandoned plugin.

Unable to save app id.

Instructions to add add_filter('https_ssl_verify', '__return_false'); were not helpful.

I used to really like this plugin
By , for WP 4.1

I used to really like this plugin because it worked well and better than most other Facebook plugins, plus it was nice having Facebook officially support and release this plugin.

Although it is nice to use an officially supported plugin, Jetpack does a way better job at posting to Facebook pages and such, this plugin is probably more suited for developers now, nothing wrong with that, but i do wish it had 'authenticate' buttons and stuff like most plugins do now days.

Long Overdue for Update and Bug Fixes
By , for WP 4.0.1

As of this review the Facebook plugin has not seen an update in about 9 months which is disgraceful. How many updates has WordPress and other plugins seen in that time? Not to mention this is a complicated plugin that requires creating a Facebook app ID and is buggy. The share button for example only show half the pop up window so is useless. It gives open meta graph errors with Yoast SEO. Come on Facebook and get your act to gather and issue an update or delete this plugin all together and let people that want to support it and update it frequently write one for you.

Facebook obviously has forgotten they even have a WordPress plugin and this is an embarrassment to them. Pathetic
