    Thanks for the help!

  5. Can we connect this app directly to the wordpress platform?? or is there any other option?

    • Rohit Langde says:

      No, it cannot be connected to WordPress but if your motive is to share your posts from WordPress Blog to WordPress, there are other solutions.
      You can use other WordPress plugin like “Wordbook” or use Facebook app called “NetworkedBlogs”.
