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.

Total piece of crap

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.

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

the Facebook WordPress plugin will make your site slow
By , for WP 4.0

Disable this plugin if you note slowness in your blog/site.

the Facebook word press plugin will make your site slow even with high performance server hosting.

Total crap waist of time
By , for WP 4.0

its totally stupid that we have to create a facebook app in the first place.
As a facebook shareholder I say they need to tell one of their thousands of high paid employees to spend the few hours that it would take them to sort this plugin out and fix it properly so that it does not require a facebook app, just build everything that it requires into the plugin itself..

facebook apps should be for ummm let me think oh yes thats it, FACEBOOK APS!!
