Quick and Easy
By , for WP 4.0

Quick and easy setup ... worth the 15 of setup time.

Spams Likes for the Plugin and not your Content
By , for WP 3.9.2

I uninstalled this plugin and yet it continues to spam the Plugin Facebook page all over my site! This even on new and existing posts. This is very unethical and I do not recommend this plugin to anyone.

Out of date

Step by step instruction does not work. Could not make the publish functionality work. Other things still working like bottoms for liking or sharing. But there are better pluggins for such things.

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.9.2

Used with a past version, it was a pain but worked.

Now it doesn't work at all, no way to add Facebook to user.

Like box doesn't work
By ,

If I add the URL the plugin hangs during saving. Useless.

It works terribly
By , for WP 3.9.2

You can adjust the width of the plug-in pixels, but you can not set it in %. If your site fits the screen size, this plug will break it. You set everything under the screen of a laptop, and on mobile phone will be bad.

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.

API changes too much, slows down website, and latest change makes you go get

code for like and comment boxes. So why bother with the app?

Extremely poorly documented and difficult to configure
By , for WP 3.9.2

FB's "documentation" describes things the plugin (apparently) can do, with no explanation of how to actually set those things up. Plus they change their UI and APIs so often any information you find on the Internet that's more than a few months old is out of date. Extremely frustrating experience, never was able to get social publisher to work

Like Box widget can't be made responsive
By , for WP 3.9.2

There is no way to set a fluid percentage-based width on the Facebook Like Box widget. You must set a fixed width in pixels, and the minimum width allowed is 292. If your sidebar gets smaller than that (like on an iPad or other tablet) the widget will break your layout. And if your sidebar expands (like on a smartphone in single-column layout) the widget will not fill the space.
