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.

There is really little to add to the title of this review other than to congratulate the Developer Mr. Jordy Meow. As mentioned in the title of this review, the Social Engine: Schedule Social Media Posts WordPress plugin is really well designed and coded, it also turns out to be very streamlined, lightweight and packed with lots of features and most importantly it works perfectly (mind you, do not confuse the errors that can be caused by an incompatibility with obsolete versions of PHP, because using the updated versions of PHP and supported by this plugin, although I have been using this plugin for a long time, I have not yet encountered any errors in this plugin). Basically, with Social Engine: Schedule Social Media Posts, this simple but very powerful WordPress plugin, you can automate and schedule on all your favorite social channels and more, the publication of your content, photos and media, with many features all very useful and all to be discovered. Oh I forgot… it is virtually completely free but there is also a paid Professional version available (optionally) that adds, for those who need it, support for: LinkedIn, Pinterest Draft Mode / Review Validation workflow, which is ideal when you need to approve the posts before they are published. Revive Posts Automatically plan all the articles! Ideal to revive your website in a few clicks. To finish I still give my compliments to the Developer Mr. Jordy Meow and I can only recommend you to try it because it is really an Excellent plugin for WordPress and I am very proud to have completely translated it into Italian! Greetings and have a nice day.

We are using social engine plugin since a few weeks on our websites and it is really surprising how much more visits we get and how much more visible we are. Since this is a little agency, we do not have a lot of funds to online communications and marketing. Thank you very much Meow-Team for this plugin and for your great support! Therefore we recommend all plugins of Meow

I’ve been using Social Engine on my website for several weeks and have been very pleased with the results. The plugin is easy to use and configure, and offers all the features I need to make my social networks more active and engaging. One of the features I liked the most about Social Engine is the ability to schedule social media posts. This has saved me time and effort, as I can create my posts in advance and schedule them to be published for a time that best suits me. Social Engine is a must-have plugin for any website that wants to add social media features. It is an easy-to-use tool and offers a wide range of features that can help improve user engagement.

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.
