How to AutoPost from WordPress to Facebook

Earlier this year Facebook introduced some changes to their API which broke autopost features in many plugins include Jetpack. Many users were up in arms against these changes as they could no longer post to their personal Facebook profiles or Facebook groups. However, there is still a solution that works perfectly fine.

However, there is still a solution that works perfectly fine.

Download the SNAP Social Networks Auto Poster plugin and subscribe to the premium API, which you will then use to post to Facebook instead of FB’s own API.

I use it on all my sites on a daily basis so I can vouch for it working perfectly well as of September 2018, and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon.

You’re welcome.

  1. Yes, SNAP is an awesome product alright; I used to have it on all my clients’ website. Then, Facebook changed its privacy/postonprofiles rules, and suddenly SNAP was left behind. They tried to add a workaround but never worked very well for me!

    So, my solution now is Zapier! I already had Zapier in place for other automation, but now it manages all my clients’ reposts to FB and other SNs. It is also an external service so fewer plugins installed!

    Hope this helps

    1. Leonardo, what I meant by this post is that you can still post to Facebook using the SNAP API. I use it on my sites and it works perfectly well even after the Facebook changes you mention. I also tried Zapier but it doesn’t allow you to post to personal profiles or groups.
