    I have OG information already generated from SEO plugin by Yoast.
    How can I prevent facebook plugin from doing the same thing?

    Thanks

    I had the same issue, and I had to disable it in the Yoast SEO plugin.

    (unless there's another way I haven't figured out yet).

    FYI, it's also helpful to use the FB debugger tool to check a post's thumbnail.

    Thanks for your answer, Nick.

    How can you generate og:image and og:description information? Mine do not have these two so FB auto select what is available from the site.

    I think FB plugin developer should really keep this OG information configurable from Settings.

    Thanks,
    Hieu

    Yoast WordPress SEO version 1.3.2 detects the Facebook plugin, adding elements to Facebook data instead of outputting duplicate data.
