Free vs Premium NetworksWhat networks in SNAP auto-poster plugin are free and what are not?
Why some networks are not free?
Short answer: If network has a free built-in API, SNAP supports it for free.
Plugin makes posts to every social network by calling its Application programming interface (API).
Most networks like Facebook (Facebook API), Twitter (TwitterAPI), Tumblr (Tumblr API), LinkedIn (LinkedIn API) and many others provide a very good and powerful free API that could be used for publishing posts. SNAP support for those networks is free for you.
Some networks like Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, Flipboard, XING, Reddit don’t have public API or have a read-only API that doesn’t allow to make posts. As a result it’s not possible to post there naturally.
Some networks like Facebook, LinkedIn and Blogger have native APIs that provide only partial functionality. For example, both Facebook and LinkedIn native APIs do not support posting to groups.
We have created and now we are constantly maintaining our own Premium API libraries for networks without native API and extended functionality for networks with limited APIs. Those Premium API libraries are available for some fee.
