Not working
By , for WP 3.9.2

The Social Publisher section will not work, because it is impossible to link the WP user to the FB profile.
Lots of people in the same situation.

social publisher not working

3 hours later and still trying to figure it out
By ,

Spent loads of time researching, looking for help on forums and watching videos with no good result. Plug-in deactivated and uninstalled.

Does not work
By , for WP 3.9.1

What an awful plugin! Does not work at all with wordpress 3.9.1 and is extremely complicated to setup, even for an advanced user.

Anyone know a good alternative to publish posts on facebook from wordpress?

Oh my God Facebook could you make it any worse
By , for WP 3.9

I cannot believe the ineffectiveness and complexity of this so-called plugin.
I have been trying to get the thing to work for 40 hrs.
I have reassigned my personal profile three times to my page on facebook and it defineitely is admin on my facebook page, so no problem there.

The buttons work of course no problem.

But then you come to the "Social Publisher" section ....................
Now I must say I have also re-installed the plugin 3 times to make sure it's not bugged in some way.
The links are not working on this page "Associate an Open Graph action-object pair for your application: people can publish an article" is stated to be a broken link in the web browser, and as many other people have stated the "associate wordpress to facebook account" is not working either.
There is no clear step by step explanation of what to do in a logical and CLEAR manner. Facebook are just giving you endless reems of gumpf to read and no guide.
Why are they making this so difficult, and why doesn't it work ? Why are the links to documentation broken - surely that is just basic admin that is not getting done !
Maybe facebook could produce a step by step, clearly written guide or tutorial videos for this instead of such a lacklustre. It is truly disappointing from such a huge company.
Check out Steve Stallones video on youtube, truly hilarious.

sorry to say but useless
By , for WP 3.9.1

I simply can not believe that Facebook came up with such a "plugin". To be honest regarding myself not a novice I couldn't even connect the API properly. Definitely I wouldn't need something called plugin for placings "like buttons", but for things like auto publishing. But as I said earlier API configuration is way too complex even for advanced user. Just waste of time

Hard to configure

If you are used to 2minutes click-install-configure plugins, this is not the one for you!

Doesn't work! Social Publisher is Broken
By , for WP 3.9.1

As other reviewers have noted, you cannot link your WP Account/Profile with Facebook, which is required for the Social Plugin to work. This would be so nice to have working. Facebook: When will you pay attention to this?

Unable to Associate User with Facebook
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have been unable to finish installation/setup. Specifically, I am unable to associate my wordpress user with my Facebook account as described here. Also, the installation and configuration documentation is sorely lacking. I'm sorry for the negative review, but I've spent hours and hours (days) trying to get this to work to no avail.
