What people are saying:
I cant even think how many times this plugin saved me the money and time to change the theme because i had problem to enable social media sharing (or just make it work properly). Plus easy to install and it works out of the box but still have a lot of options for anyone who want to fine tune this plugin.
Awesome work! This plug-in has a lot of features needed to properly configure sharing.
Superb! I really enjoy the customization features, which this plugin provides.
best plugin for social sharing and getting all the meta tags, literally I tried 5 other ones today and this is the only one that could do it on twitter and facebook.
Easy as install and wamn, perfect featured images, titles and descriptions for FB. Surprised wordpress still doesn’t have this built in
I’ve tried several plugins for generating the meta tags needed for Facebook to post properly. This one validates when you provide the information it needs in setup. The others I’ve tried didn’t. Enough Said!
It works perfectly for my site. Where some other plugins failed to parse text of my post correctly (they would include theme elements too), this one worked.
Very simple layout. 3rd party integration with SEO plugins e a lot of very useful features. Nice work.
