I am very happy to announce today that Smash Balloon is part of Awesome Motive and is now part of the WPBeginner product family.
Smash Balloon offers the most popular social feed plugins for WordPress. Over 1,300,000 people use Smash Balloon plugins to easily display their social media content in WordPress.
Smash Balloon is a combination of four plugins that make it easy to create and view custom Facebook feeds, custom Instagram feeds, custom Twitter feeds, and custom YouTube feeds on your WordPress site.
Over the years, Smash Balloon has stood out for being easy to set up and always reliable.
Free versions are available for all four plugins, providing all the important functions you need to create a custom social media feed.
However, if you need further customization options, e.g. Such as displaying multiple Facebook feeds, Facebook calendar events, Facebook group timelines, custom buyable Instagram feeds, Instagram story feeds, Instagram hashtag feeds, or just a custom grid of YouTube videos and Twitter feeds, then the Smash Balloon Pro plugins are the perfect option.
The best thing about Smash Balloon is that unlike other social feed plugins, it does NOT slow down your website.
The plugin has a feed caching system with which your social posts can always be loaded super-fast even when the platform API is down.
I'm very excited to be working with John Brackett (founder of Smash Balloon) and the entire team to add more powerful social media features that small businesses can use social evidence to drive engagement, revenue, and conversions.
Since Smash Balloon is an established product and has been around since 2013, we do not offer a lifelong offer. Instead, we offer a special 60% discount on all plans, including the all-access bundle, which allows you to access all Smash Balloon plugins, including future ones.

Background Story – Why Balloon Smash?
If you've read WPBeginner for a while, you know that we have been recommending Smash Balloon as a plugin for WordPress social media feeds since 2016.
This is because it is easy to set up and, above all, is ALWAYS reliable.
When small business owners start a blog or create a website, they often want to display social media feeds on their WordPress site.
This way, omni-channel marketing can help you gain more social media followers and increase sales conversions by using social proof.
As you know, our goal at Awesome Motive is to help small businesses grow and compete with the big ones.
When the opportunity came to work with John Brackett and develop the next generation of social media plugins for WordPress, I said yes.
I'm very excited about this acquisition and look forward to sharing our product development and business growth playbooks with the Smash Balloon team to create other amazing features you asked for.
We have already started working on our plans for the next big feature of Smash Balloon that I know everyone will love. I am particularly happy because I can use it for the next WPBeginner redesign
You can also expect Smash Balloon to be more deeply integrated with our existing plugins, including but not limited to MonsterInsights (Analytics), RafflePress (Contests & Giveaways), SeedProd (Landing Pages) and more.
Last but not least, we will further simplify the process of creating custom social media feeds through detailed tutorials, product training and more.
If you have any suggestions about features you would like to see in the Smash Balloon plugins, please let us know by sending us a message using the WPBeginner contact form.
As always, I would like to thank you for continuing to support WPBeginner. We look forward to offering you other amazing solutions to help you grow your business.
