This is a great plugin for linking sites, posting to twitter, but a third party API to connect to other social media sites I'd say be careful.
Many social media sites do not offer a free API to hook into, and there are many out there claiming theirs works and probably does.
However, being a third party, if changes are made to the main site and the third party does not update to comply with changes, your plugin is hosed.
I used this plugin about 2-3 years ago I had nightmares trying to get it working and had no success. This version seems much nicer, but Im only using it to update a 2nd site, post to twitter, linkedin. Before I drop $50, I'll need to chat with someone about this API and how hooked in they are with changes being made to the main media sites.
Until then, giving 3 stars as its solved a some issues with posting to multiple sites.
I really like this plugin very much, and is very handy. I love that it supports almost all the networks i need.
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.
And left behind code after uninstalling
The idea of plugin is perfect. But currently there are some major security issues that should be fixed.
1. Failed to work with HTTPS (at least for VK).
2. Failed to work with 2 step authentication.
In addition the following functionality is greatly appreciate:
1. Visual configuration of posts. For now it’s hard to configure how the non-text post will be visible on account wall. I’ve failed to find out a combination of parameters to post coub .com link the same way as it posts on account sites (coub is embedded and it can be played by a click).
2. It will be a superb function to pull the posts from social accounts to wordpress blog. In other words: it will be good to have full blog-to-blog synchronization.
Ok so it does what it needs to but alot of small websites can't use it, you are pretty much crashing your website by installing this plugin. Before I installed this plugin, I would be using around 100-200mb of ram with 1 user on the website and after I install this plugin I get around 500ram being used with 1 user, so yeah the only thing that really needs to be fixed is the memory usage but I do have to mention the stumbleupon issue. After it reaches the limit on the amounts of links per day. It keeps on trying, I am not sure why but it does and that might be why it's using alot more RAM. So please fix that. Thank you. But great plugin.
Update: Too many bugs. The auto-post feature doesn't work. Even though an editor or admin is logged in with permissions to post, the plugin uses the author of the post to determine permissions. That's like Linux denying root permissions because of the owner of a file. Also getting spammed with "server can't access it's [sic] own images", when curl can access the image from the server when run on the server.
This is very complete and impressive work of code. The documentation is very thorough too, if slightly out of date. Pinterest locked my account and forced me to reset my password, but it works now. I had trouble with multiple Twitter accounts though. I found I could delete the phone number off the Twitter app after I authenticated and re-use it for another account. I'm impressed with the privacy-focused architecture setting up your own apps that you control, instead of using a 3rd party website or app and giving away permissions or passwords.
Who can help me with this error?
Tried everything in the troubleshooting FAQ.

Plugin previously broke posting privileges for contributor level users on my website.
It was addressed, and I still use it today.
I've been using this plugin for about 4 months now with no major issues. However, I just ran the newest plugin update today and experienced a major site slowdown (load time went from about 6 seconds to 26 seconds)! I started disabling plugins until I found that disabling this plugin majorly sped up our site.
Not sure what caused this but if it helps, we're using the Avada WordPress theme and run about 8 other active plugins. I'd like to try this plugin again in the future when there's a fix.
Its is a cool and must to have Plugin But comment importe from facebook seems to have some kind of BUG.
It is importing comments but instead of showing commenters name its showing bloggers name.
Once fixed it worth 5 rating but now it would be 3 from my side.
