In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to install both Joomla plugin and EasySocial application. I will also show a basic configuration that can help you display ads on your community stream and social profile.

This plugin comes free with the subscription of the extension.
You'll find it installed (you may need to enable it manually) after extension's installation, alternatively, it's available in the downloads section (available for active subscribers).
