Setup/Installation: Facebook - Social Networks Auto-PosterHow to setup Facebook in SNAP WordPress plugin and API
SNAP Supports two different APIs for Facebook.
You can chose what API to use. (Please see here why there are two different APIs for Facebook.)
1. Native Facebook API:
Free official built-in API from Facebook. Requires review and approval from Facebook. Can post to Pages and Groups if/once Facebook approves your request.
Advantages: Free. Official.
Disadvantages: Can be used only if Facebook approves your app. (Current review/approval time is 8-10 weeks). Very complicated to setup. Unstable. Your site must use HTTPS.
Premium API with extended functionality. Can post to Profiles, Pages and Groups. Very easy to setup.
Advantages: Can post to Profiles, Pages and Groups. No waiting and no review is required. Very easy to setup.
Disadvantages: Not Free. Unofficial.
