4.2 out of 5 stars
Save your money.
By , for WP 3.7.1

Edit: I've since had a change of heart and am changing my review. My original review is at the bottom.

----- UPDATED REVIEW -----
Circumstances had required me to reinstall WP & plugins. Went to reinstall 3.2.1 on WP 3.8.1 and had the same problems with AJAX "-1" errors on the settings page.

While I think the support could have gone better, ultimately the developer was able to find the problem and release ver. 3.2.2. This introduced a new problem however.

After giving the developer login credentials to the site, he was able to see first-hand the problem, provided a workaround, and indicated the problem will be fixed in the next version.

Perhaps I was a little too harsh in my original review. After all, most WP developers are usually one or two guys whose passion is WP and extending WP. Not making any excuses, but in my defense I wouldn't have been so upset originally if I hadn't just laid out $150 for the plugin. For $150 you expect something that "works". (Dear mods - yes I know this is the support forum for the non-commercial version of the plugin, but the same problems that have plagued the pro version also plague the free version.)

So I'm revising my review. I won't give this plugin 5 stars, because while it may be a tremendous time-saver, it's just too flaky, and the development lifecycle is too… unpredictable.

Personally I think this should be split out to make the codebase easier for the developer to work with. Have a main plugin and separate plugins for each social network that way when an API changes in twitter you only have to update one small plugin and not the behemoth.

Anyway, these are my words, and I stand behind them.

----- ORIGINAL REVIEW -----
I gotta say I'm incredibly disappointed and frustrated with this plugin.

I've been fighting with this plugin now for over a week, have had to open about a half-dozen tickets with the plugins' author, and have even had to resort to posting here since he took down the forums on his website. I can honestly say that I'm ashamed to admit I forked over the $150 for the WPMU version.

My heartfelt honest advice?

Save your money.

Consider using IFTTT instead. It allows you to automatically setup recipes and connections to the same social networks and can automatically post from all of your blogs (WPMU or not) based on when you publish a new post.

Honest to God I wish I could get a refund.

This is a great concept, but poorly executed in my opinion.

Works perfect, time saver
By , for WP 3.7.1

Thank you for this plugin. Worth every penny.
I like it because:
1. No limits to number of social accounts
2. Runs on my server, not on some service that might be up or down, and I don´t have to share my usernames and passwords
3. I pay once to get it, but no monthly fees like other plugins/services that do this.
4. The setup takes a little time but is easy thanks to the meticulous instructions
5. It works perfect.
6. Saves so much time not having to post stuff myself.

Great

El mejor plugin social poster que conozco

Excelente plugin para crear backlinks sociales, existe una copia tal ves sea ilegal que se vende en 47 USD pero definitivamente no hay como SNAP

Great timesaver - well worth the investment for Pro
By , for WP 3.6.1

This plugin was easy to setup and now saves me several steps in promoting my work. Love the fact that you can test it with the free version to make sure it works with your host before investing in the Pro version.

Excellent plugin, but I have a question/error RE: Facebook Page Insights!
By , for WP 3.6.1

As said this plugin is truly magnificent.
I love how it does just what I want it to do and I must say, it is very very easy to set up.

I bought the pro version and have not looked back..brilliant - thank you!

However, I have a question for all you Facebook page managers;
When I create pages/posts on my site and then publish it, the info is sent to all my social networking sites including Facebook.

However, unlike posts in Facebook I don't get to see the post 'insights' which only available to page admin
s.
Now, I CAN see the posts using a different account - that's not the issue..
I just cannot see the post insights that we get from Facebook to help us track who sees things etc..
Anyone else have this issue and/or know of a fix?

I've spoken to the dev but I think he thinks I meant posts not showing on Facebook which is NOT the case.

Anyway, a superb plugin and I HIGHLY recommend it.

The most useful plugin I have installed
