Don't need the sharing buttons? Have a look at the WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) plugin — a fork (aka child) of NextGEN Facebook (NGFB). They have the same author, many of the same excellent features, are both extremely fast and reliable, but WPSSO is packaged without the sharing buttons and their related features (shortcodes, widgets, stylesheets, javascript caching, and url shortening). WPSSO uses 25% less code and is often preferred for websites that already have (or don't need) a set of sharing buttons.

Complete Meta Tags

NGFB adds Open Graph (Facebook), Pinterest Rich Pins, Twitter Cards, and Search Engine Optimization meta tags to the head section of webpages.

NGFB is a complete social sharing solution that uses the existing content of your webpages to build HTML meta tags — There's no need to manually enter / configure any additional values or settings (although many settings and options are available).

NGFB (Pro version) provides the Summary, Large Image Summary, Photo, Gallery, Player and Product Twitter Cards — including configurable image sizes for each card type.

3rd Party Integration

Aside from the additional support for Twitter Cards, the main difference between the Free and Pro versions is the integration of 3rd party plugins and services.

Images and Videos

NGFB detects and uses all images - associated or included in your Post or Page content - including WordPress Media Library image galleries and embedded videos from Slideshare, Vimeo, Wistia, and Youtube (including their preview images). WordPress Media Library images (and NextGEN Gallery in the Pro version) are resized according to their intended audience (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc).

NGFB (Pro version) also includes support for JetPack Photon and NextGEN Gallery v1 and v2 albums, galleries and images (shortcodes, image tags, album / gallery preview images, etc.).

Enhanced SEO

NGFB (Pro version) integrates with WordPress SEO by Yoast and All in One SEO Pack, making sure your custom SEO settings are reflected in the Open Graph, Rich Pin, and Twitter Card meta tags.

eCommerce Products

NGFB (Pro version) also supports WooCommerce v1 and v2, MarketPress - WordPress eCommerce and WP e-Commerce product pages, creating appropriate meta tags for Facebook Products, Twitter Product Cards and Pinterest Rich Pins, including poduct variations (size, color, etc.) and additional / custom images.

Forums and Social

NGFB (Pro version) supports bbPress and BuddyPress (see the BuddyPress Integration Notes), making sure your meta tags reflect the page content, including appropriate titles, descriptions, images, etc. Social sharing buttons can also be added to bbPress single template pages and BuddyPress activities.

Social Sharing Buttons

NGFB comes with several sharing buttons, that you can optionally include on Post / Page editing pages, above / below your content or excerpt, bbPress single pages, BuddyPress activity entries, as a sidebar, widget, shortcode, or even a function call from your theme template(s). Each of the following sharing buttons can be enabled, configured, and styled individually:

  • Facebook Like, Send, Share
  • Google+
  • LinkedIn
  • Pinterest
  • StumbleUpon
  • Tumblr (Links, Quotes, Images, Videos)
  • Twitter (Summary, Large Image Summary, Photo, Gallery, Player and Product Cards)

The Facebook, Google+ and Twitter sharing buttons support multiple languages. A default language can be chosen in the NGFB settings, and the Pro version switches the sharing button language with the webpage language (WordPress locale). NGFB can also include hashtags, from WordPress and NextGEN Gallery tag names, in the Open Graph (Facebook) and Pinterest Rich Pin descriptions, Tweet text, and other social captions.

Custom Contacts

NGFB (Pro version) allows you to customize the field names, label, and show / remove the following Contact Methods from the user profile page:

  • AIM
  • Facebook
  • Google+
  • Jabber / Google Talk
  • LinkedIn
  • Pinterest
  • Skype
  • Tumblr
  • Twitter
  • Yahoo IM
  • YouTube

Proven Performance

NGFB is fast and coded for performance, making full use of all available caching techniques (persistent / non-persistent object and disk caching). NGFB loads only the library files and object classes it needs, keeping it small, fast, and yet still able to support a wide range of 3rd party integration features.
