Never gets past Authenticate and no way to add Facebook Account to Profile
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have screenshots for anyone interested. I installed this plugin with intention of using the Social Publisher so I could automatically post new blog posts to the Facebook Page.

First problem I ran into was Step 3. Authenticate with Facebook to allow your Facebook application to post to your Timeline or Page on your behalf when a post is published. Followed by a red x.

No instructions on how to do this. Nothing to click on to authenticate etc.etc. Went through all the settings again on the Facebook app and made sure all areas were filled in correctly as far as namespace, url, and mobile url.

App ID and App secret were filled out on the WP plugin side.

Second problem I ran into (most likely related to the first) was when clicking on the link Add a Facebook account to your WordPress account after Publish to a Page it redirected me to the profile page. At the bottom of the profile page there was a section for Facebook Account. Under that it said Get started. But there was nothing else to click on or fill in, and Get started didn't link anywhere. Just two text words - Get started... Ummmmm okay... would love to! So.....?!?!!? What now?!

Below that the button to Update Profile.

Very unpolished plugin. I expected a lot more from a huge company like Facebook who no doubt has teams of developers. Highly disappointing plugin. Don't recommend.

like most other people here, I've found this plugin does not work at all. I'm an experienced web site developer. I tried Facebook All and that plugin worked.

Useless

There is nowhere I can log in to facebook. It directs me to my profile but there is only a heading saying facebook. No place to add my details. I have activated it ans registered the app with facebook. WHat a waste of my precious time!

Broken for version 3.7.1
By , for WP 3.7.1

I'm afraid this doesn't work for the newest version of WordPress, when I upgraded, the plug-in broke, so I deactivated it, uninstalled it, and re-installed it, and still no luck.

I would love to change my rating, if you are willing to put out an update! Thanks
