NextGEN Facebook has been replaced by WPSSO.

The WPSSO Core plugin is a fork / child of NextGEN Facebook — they're both Free and available on WordPress.org, have the same author and developer, the same solid core features and code-base, but WPSSO Core is distributed without the social sharing buttons and their related features.

Social sharing buttons are distributed separately, as optional extensions for WPSSO Core. You can choose not to install any social sharing buttons, use the traditional WPSSO Social Sharing Buttons, the latest WPSSO Ridiculously Responsive Social Sharing Buttons extension, or any other 3rd party social sharing buttons plugin.

WPSSO Core offers several useful and optional extensions:

NextGEN Facebook and WPSSO settings are fully compatible:

After enabling the "Preserve Settings on Uninstall" option on the Essential Settings page, you can deactivate and uninstall the NextGEN Facebook plugin, then install and activate the WPSSO Core plugin.
