Unusable
By , for WP 4.2.2

I tried several times and different settings. G+, FB and TW messages appear, but a huge picture without text. When I want to give only text I get notifications about the error. Problems.

LinkedIn Does Not Work For Me After Reportedly Being Fixed
By , for WP 4.2.2

Features report that all LinkedIn issues were fixed one week ago (as of this writing). Reinstalled with new version. Old data was still in database, and still would not authorize or connect to LinkedIn.

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.

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.

Very disappointing!
By , for WP 4.1

This is a really great plugin, but Facebook does not work, so is missing the inclusion of the most prominent social channel making it worthless.
Support is very poor, you will receive an email directing you to the knowledge base articles which you will have already analyzed and followed to the 'T' without success. After this you will receive no response from 'support'.
But, my money is already spent so... happy days eh developer!

Doesn't work and can't get support
By , for WP 4.1

Doesn't work and can't get support...

I have MANY emails + screenshots of official support tickets to back up my claims.

If you can't get it to work yourself you will have wasted your money...

Doesn't work.

Doesn't allow me to "add new account" useless.

A Serious Problem
By , for WP 4.0

You can't delete the plugin. Not without going through a lot of hassle removing the folder from the file section of your control panel, then having to create a new plugin folder to move all your remaining plugins into.

If this rating system allowed it I'd give it a -5. Just for the rudeness exhibited when the thing was removed.

Causes memory leaks and server crashes
By , for WP 4.0

It's a great idea to post across all your social networks in one place and the plugin does what it says on the tin, however it does appear to be extremely resource hungry on your server.

After some investigation and testing with my web hosting company it appears that the SNAP plugin has a memory leak and was causing my virtual private server to crash every time a post went out. Counter productive since when the post was distributed to social media people would come to my site to read it and it wouldn't be there.

I'll be going back to posting manually and have since deleted the plugin, no more server crashes thank goodneess.

A good idea badly coded / implemented.
