Error broadcasting a page to Facebook (5 posts)

    This is the first time in a long while that I've tried to broadcast a page.

    About a year ago, I posted a hack that let Social broadcast pages as well as posts. Now I see that there's a nifty checkbox that lets users opt in and out of broadcasting either posts or pages. Glad to see that.

    However, when I tried to broadcast a page for the first time, I got this:

    Social failed to broadcast the blog post "Web Writing Checklist for Newbies: 10 Tips Before You Publish Your Web Project" to one or more of your Social accounts.

    Facebook: Dennis G. Jerz ((#100) description parameter cannot be longer than 10000 characters.)
    Possible fixes:
    Social was not successful in broadcasting this post (perhaps the service is down?), please try broadcasting again. If you receive this message repeatedly, you can try the support forums.

    I certainly didn't type more than 10000 characters in the description box -- right now it reads "Minor updates to a still-relevant page I wrote in 2002."

    Of course I'll try again later, but in the meanwhile I'd welcome thoughts.

    About a year ago, I posted a hack that let Social broadcast pages as well as posts.

    Are you sure you've removed the hack?

    I've tested successfully posting a page to both facebook and twitter.

    Are you hooking into any of socials actions/filters?

    I just had the same issue.

    It would help us diagnose this issue if you would turn on debug mode (in the Plugin Settings) and show us your debug_log.txt while reproducing this (omitting any sensitive data of course).

    Thank you very much for your willingness to help.

    Here is an excerpt from the debug log.
