If you want to publish your WordPress blog posts automatically to Facebook page or other social media sites like Twitter, Google+ and others then there are two plugins which I would like to recommend, they are very easy to setup and works smoothly.

1) Jetpack by WordPress.com
Jetpack is a bundle of various useful plugin developed by team of WordPress, it has over 12 million users and it is regularly updated. One of its feature is Publicize which may help you to publish your blog post to Facebook page or your timeline.

Install Jetpack
Goto Plugins>Add new> Search for Jetpack by WordPress.com> Install>Activate Plugin.

Connect to wordpress.com
If you have wordpress.com account then sign or create new account.
Sign in with your wordpress.com account to authorize.

Configure Publicize
Goto Jetpack (On left sidebar)> settings>Scroll down>Click Publicize and click it>click configure.

Connect your Site to your Facebook Page
On the Sharing page, click the Connect button next to the Facebook logo. A message will appear asking you to authorize the connection between your WordPress.com blog and your Facebook account. It’ll ask three times for providing access 1) to public profile and friend list, 2) to post publicly on your behalf and lastly 3) to manage your pages, Click okay every time.
