Broadcast posts to Twitter and/or Facebook, pull in reactions from each (replies, retweets, comments, "likes") as comments, and allow commen
So this seemed like the prefect way to broadcast new posts, but also bring twitter and fb comments on the story back to the site.
As far as I can tell it completely fails at all of that. It doesn't automatically broadcast, you have to manually do that after the post is published. It will see Facebook comments but won't import them to WordPress and as far as I can tell, it just hates twitter.
This plugin desperately needs updates, a more streamlined user experience and you know... to work.
When I use this plug-in, my readers' comments are not visible
I authenticated with Twitter twice, both in the Settings tab and in the Users tab, and refreshed the page, but it still would not display any accounts!
I loved this plugin, but it has not worked on the last two sites I have put it on. It will not let me login to my facebook.
Come on Mailchimp, you are so good with this stuff
Update - get this and it works wp-social-feature-wp4-updates
don't bother. (at least with WP 3.9.1)
i'm the type that assumes i'll have to play around with a plugin to get it to work 100% correctly...i spent 2 hours playing with this and there are just too many errors...
oh yeah, AND i'm working off a fresh WP install with only 2 plugins (Google Publisher & SEO by Yoast) active, so it's not conflicts with other plugins...that's a baaaaaaaaaaadddd sign
too bad, because it sounded awesome and appears to have potential
don't waste your time

I have read support posts related to social comments pulling. And You simply flagged the case as resolved while the users are still having a problem. You only excuse is that it works on your side. What is that?!!!
Do you think you are providing support this way? Don't you care about your reputation?
I encourage all users to uninstall this plugin because it simply doesn't work and the support is totally careless!
weak UX/UI and problems with pulling comments
This plug-in overwrote all font and color settings on my client's site. Every time I had issues with the CSS the code started with "#social-" which was almost impossible to find. I installed this because my client wanted cross posting between her business FB page and her new website.
Reading all of the support posts here, it sure sounds like a plug-in to stay away from. I tried and tried to get any support from MailChimp but they finally said they don't support the plug-in and referred me to WordPress. org. Some help. If they're going to launch this on unsuspecting people, at least support it and fix all the bugs.
Worst plug-in ever!
Works when it feels like it.
Tends to post at random times when it does work
Have disabled, reinstalled, you name it.
Don't count on it working.
If this is any indication of "MailChimp" quality, it is amazing that they are still in business
I agree with jmlapam. It's a fantastic idea!
...If only it did everything it said it does. I used to be able to pull in some Tweets, but recently, I've been unable to pull in both, Tweets and Facebook comments. Well, the couple of Facebook comments it's pulled in were *my own* and it's been spamming me with myself, over and over.
Tried the support forum, and the broadcasting feature is broken too (glad I don't use it for that)l. And no word of support for most forum problems or my own. Basically, this plugin feels broken & I'll be deActivating it.
Had such high hopes for this plugin. Such a shame
