Social Engine: Schedule Social Media Posts

Description

Take your social media game to the next level with Social Engine – the ultimate scheduling tool for your content and photos! And it’s completely free! Unlike other tools like TweetDeck, Buffer, Falcon, and ContentCal, Social Engine has no limitations on scheduling posts. You have full control of the system once it’s installed on your WordPress, and you can even customize it to your needs with easy-to-use coding.

Currently, it supports:

  • Instagram
  • Facebook
  • X (Twitter)
  • Mastodon
  • LinkedIn (Pro Version)
  • Pinterest (Pro Version)

Current features:

  • Plan your SNS Posts with a pretty UI
  • Create Post with Photos
  • Automatically schedule your WP Posts
  • Select images which has never been published on SNS
  • Revive your old content
  • Draft Support (Pro Version)
  • Statistics, such views and likes (Pro Version)
  • Revive Posts or Pages (Pro Version)

Consider the Pro Version for additional one-to-one support, and to help me developing it. This plugin is, as you can guess, quite a lot of work! Many companies are running expensive platforms for the same services. I think they are way too expensive and not always made, so this is my attempt to make things cheaper and better. I need you!

No third-party service 💕

Say goodbye to third-party services with Social Engine. Enjoy no limitations, no hidden costs (except for the optional Pro version), and the security of keeping your data to yourself. Plus, you can customize and automate everything to fit your specific needs. Note that you’ll need to create your own “Facebook App” (and the same goes for Twitter, Instagram, etc.) It’s easy and straightforward, and if you need any help, just check out my tutorial or ask a friend for assistance! 🤓

Extensibility

We provide actions, filters and an API so that you can extend the plugin the way you like. Please let us know what you would like to do, and we’ll give you everything you need. Please check the section about extensibility in the documentation.

It's already saving me so much money vs. Buffer. And I love the control of having my social posts on WordPress instead of yet another 3rd party service.

I've been using this for a few weeks and its a great plugin. I may upgrade soon to the extras if it carries on being this awsome

Instructions in the dashboard are confusing and don't match Facebook. And Facebook asks too much information which is frankly none of their business Furthermore, this plugin leaves tracks all over facebook and instagram that are almost impossible to find. I haven't been able to connect my facebook and insta accounts in Meta business suite since installing and uninstalling this plugin.

5stars no doubt and it was worth paying the small amount for the pro version to allow multiple sites and get amazing support. The app takes a little care to initially set up due to the intricate rules set up by the various social media engines. But for sure much much easier than creating your own posting tools or paying top dollar for some of the more conventional apps. Brilliant to be able ti do it directly within the website too.

Took some guesswork on the Facebook Explorer permissions needed to get it working, but just added them all, and that solves, can probably find out which by trial and error, but I think Jordy just needed to recheck this and update the documentation. Keep up the great work, the world needs and thanks you!
