This app was the easiest to configure--even the more complicated option to brand your own Facebook API was well documented and allows for you to re-brand your service so when the post is made to Facebook, you get the post...via YOUR-APP so this is a great tool for developers that provide this as a service to their clients.
Support: I had a glitch and posted on the forum and received a quick response. A short interaction later on the forums (almost in real-time!) he identified the problem.
For anyone who wants to eliminate the need to re-port or use 3rd party applications like Hootsuite, etc. this component is a must.
There are no modifications to the basic Joomla! article content system, and the plugin can be configured to read tags and direct to specific twitter or facebook channels accordingly. The K2 plugin makes this compatible with one of the best CCK options as well.
First, the results: I use AutoTweet for a very specialized professional network (nonprofit marketing specialists). Within a few months of using AutoTweet, our Twitter feed attracted hundreds more members to the network.
Setup and Operation: The commercial version was fairly easy to set up and configure. I like the way that it reports on the status of each tweet or Facebook post, so I can quickly tell if I am having problems.
Level of support: When I had questions about tweaking the configuration, the support was timely and informative.
Performance: This has been one of the few components that have been "set-it-and-forget-it." The only performance issues I run into come from my own changes to other parts of the site configuration without telling AutoTweet what I have done.
In summary, this is such a great component, I hesitated to write this five star review because I have thought about it as my secret weapon. But in the spirit of the Joomla movement, this component and its developer deserve to be praised loudly and widely for the excellent work.
I first started using this component to prepare a non-profit web site for the 40th anniversary of the Kent State Ohio shootings on May 4 1970. Upon having an issue with the install toward the goal of integrating both Twitter and facebook I emailed the Author Ulli Storck for assistance. Fully expecting him to point me to an FAQ or the documentation I was surprised when he offered to help me verify the configuration! It turned out that Twitter changed their API security which in short order got updated in the software. I haven't had a problem since!
I've been further impressed at the number of updates and additions of various features to the software that makes it a must have for any site that is serious about social network integration of their web site. I highly recommend this software to update your social friends on the updates from your web sites!
Ulli Storck has done a great job of keeping his software up to date! Plug-in are also available for all the popular software I run ie: sobi2, virtuemart, etc...
Simple to install and works very nice. I like manual mode.
Cons: There is some mess with licenses, GPL that is restricted, some parts have copyright ...
Publication always add "Via AutoTweet Connector", and its logo and URL... thats no cool.
Tweets are OK but FB post could be improved adding more text (here is no limited as tweeter) and even an image from the article.
Does the job anyway.
Thank you for the review!

It's the normal GPL, IMO there are no special rules for some parts. Can you send me a PMS on 1st-movers.com and explain what you mean?

Thats normal Facebook behavoir to show the app via the post is posted. Upcomming version 2.0 has a new feature for this and you can use your own app and so your own logo. (beta is allready avalaible in download area on 1st-movers.com)

Version 2.0 uses more text for Facebook.
Thx again for the review,
Our website's community is already abuzz since implementing this extension - we have been able to drive users back to the main site instead of duplicating articles on Twitter and FB.
Great tool - you won't be disappointed....
Have a Facebook Fan Page? Personal Page? what have you - this component outputs the same "tweet" messages that is does to Twitter. Plans are in the roadmap to provide more detailed output to FB in the future, as there are fewer limitations than Twitter - Just an example of what you can expect from future updates from this great component, and great developer.
This component is very easy to install, update, and maintain - One look at the backend and you will realize the time and hard work that was put into it - Information section is VERY smart for keeping you up to date of the latest versions of the various plugins/components available.
I am using SH404, and Autotweet NG PRO has no problem integrating and working with it, at all.
Options allow you to pick manual or automatic tweeting/FB updates - Roadmap is to provide separate capabilities for both TW and FB instead of together every time.
Sometimes its the little things that matter - the work that has gone into the plugins is amazing - the configurability of details is fantastic!
This component is worth the 9.99 being charged for it, even if it only output to Twitter! And we all know that FB output is a must, so.
Do yourself a favor and pick up this great component - it's THE Social component for Joomla.
