I started looking for a wordpress plugin that would allow me to publish a post to a Facebook group, also if I wrote a post in that facebook group my wordpress could create a post based on it's details.  I'm fairly certain I did this with Facebook Pages and my User profile at some point.


Looking at the plugins they all mostly seem to be very old / not updated much.  Looking at the Facebook API there were some big changes in October 2016 relating to groups.  It is my understanding that I can't publish via facebook.com/group/{group-id} and I have to use an app? 

The API pages point me to use a different "edge" what is an "edge"?  I understand a bit about SOAP and REST calls, I've sent stuff too and from Twitter but I would not call myself fluent but I could bumble my way to a solution with some broad stroke guidance.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: facebook groups, facebook api, post publishing
