Breaks the site
By , for WP 4.5.3

I needed to remove the plugin to get the site back up and running. Does not work on PHP7 without making direct changes to the plugin. Yuck.

1 star only for lack of an option for 0.

Very exciting! Crashes site and admin panel!
By , for WP 4.5.3

This is a very exciting plugin. It crashed my site AND my admin panel/dashboard. I had to delete the wp-content/plugins/facebook directory to even be able to open wp-admin. Ha ha.

This plugin is dead. Avoid.

Fix for PHP7 when the site is crashed is

Remove break; on line 84 of like-box.php

and then - uninstall this outdated plugin and look for a replacement.

Worst plugin ever.
By , for WP 4.5.1

This plugin made my site crash. When I tried to access it after activation everything just went blank. I can't even go to the admin page.
I didn't read the comments before and figured the official Facebook plugin can't be this bad… it's worse than 1 star.

Made my site crash!!

For whatever reason it made my site crash and I had to remove it through my http://FTP.. Please do not install it.

The instructions and those leaving 5 star reviews made it sound great and easy to install. I spent an hour and couldn't get it to work at all. Ugh!

Great for WordPress/Facebook comments replacement
By , for WP 4.3.1

I'm not sure why this is getting so many poor reviews, but I haven't had any problems with this plugin. It is quick to setup. All you have to do is create a custom application in Facebook for your website, which literally takes perhaps 10 seconds to do, and copy/paste the ID and App Secret to the text fields in the plugin.

This plugin will allow you to replace your custom WordPress comments area with a Facebook Comments Box. Note that there is a separate plugin for this that is simply called "Facebook Comments" - do NOT use that other one because it is a greatly stripped down version of this plugin, and if you use a comments counter in your WordPress theme, it will not recognize comment counts with the other plugin.

This plugin also lets you add Facebook share & follow icons with ample customization options.

The main point of this plugin, in my opinion, is for replacement of the generic Facebook comments area, which is and always was horrible.

What a shame that this piece of crap carries the Facebook logo.
