Does not work with FaceBook!
By , for WP 4.2.2

Used to work fine but now does not. Per the plugin site instructions, I update WP, updated the plugin to the latest versions and re-authorized my FB page. I still get the error:

Array
(
[Warning] =>
[Error] => (#283) Requires extended permission: manage_pages
)
Array ( [Warning] => [Error] => (#283) Requires extended permission: manage_pages )

Very little support on this topic other than "it's facebooks fault" or update the plugn.

Veeeeeeery cool plugin.

Brought Down the Dashboard
By , for WP 4.2.2

Beware - I am using the Divi theme and as soon as I activated this plugin the Dashboard went blank and I lost all connection to it. The website was still functioning, though.
I finally got control back by removing the execute permissions on the "wordpress/wp-contente/plugins/social-networks-auto-poster-facebook-twitter-g" directory. I was then able to delete the plugin and all functionality came back. (Note, just deactivating it didn't work - it locked up the dashboard again.) Might be a good plugin in a different environment.

Great Plug-in That Actually Works!
By , for WP 4.2.1

Had it up and running within about 2 minutes - don't you love it when things just work as you hope!

Works !

Good explanation and works, couldn't ask for more ?

Painful but Robust
By ,

The installation and configuration is painful. But the good part is that with this you can never get banned as you are working and autoposting off your own API keys that you have generated for your account. Once over the initial configuration pain, the plugin works like a charm.

Superior to Jetpack's "Publicize"
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin is better than WordPress's/Jetpack's own solution, because it allows you to define categories and/or post types that you do not want to share on social networks. That way it lets you decide to only auto-share really important news, instead of spamming out everything.

Also, I love how this plugin is independent of any third-party social network services. The slightly higher effort required to set it all up is well worth it!

Almost excellent plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

I really like this plugin very much, and is very handy. I love that it supports almost all the networks i need.
BUT
I have a small issue in my case which causes me lots of problems.
In my blog i publish more than 1000 new posts every day, and although i do want to autoshare them in the social networks, i dont want to auto share all the posts. Because its spammy.
SNAP has a nice feature to limit the posts by setting delay between each post update, BUT it doenst work.
I've tried all settings and did many checks, but it doesnt work. It keep up posting all the posts and not only that, for each autopost it does, it creates a new PHP thread in the server and in my case it ends up killing my server by overwhelming PHP Threads.
So i please ask you to consider making it more light or less resources hungry and fix that autoposting limits.
thank you

Great if it worked I'm sure

This plugin appears to do exactly what I want, but the setup is a nightmare to say the least.

Creating Twitter and Facebook Apps is painful enough, but it means white label branding so... ok.

But the App refuses to recognize the Facebook connection and Twitters new developer rules require connecting to to a phone number. I'm just not sure it's a viable system anymore. I'll go with another App and deal with a little "posted by" on Facebook. This is just too much hassle.
