    Wondering if anyone one else has this problem. When someone tries to share my site on facebook (just the domain, not the url of an individual post), it defaults to the most recent post. I can see the problem is here:

    Response Code: 200
    Fetched URL: http://www.jasongood.net/
    Canonical URL: http://jasongood.net/365/2013/03/nap-guilt/

    But I don't know how to change it. Suggestions?

    Hi Jason,
    I am not 100% sure, but at a guess it could be meta property="og:url" content="http://jasongood.net/365/2013/03/nap-guilt/"
    i think that og:url basically tells FB scraper "ignore anything on this page, and scrape this url instead"
    I dont know how you set up you like button I have simply used an iframe and a text widget, it is really easy to do so worth a try, instructions here Good Luck.
