    Hello,

    I been trying to figure out why the FB plugin posts my except twice when my posts get published on FB. I'm looking for some kind of solution or work around. This is totally unacceptable.

    Please see example of double except. http://www.facebook.com/dailyspicy

    Hope I can get this fixed today!!

    At last, someone with exactly the same issue as I am having. I have double checked all setting and cannot see where the issue lies.

    Perhaps a double appeal will help matters.

    Thanks for any support!

    Also the Facebook plugin is making my like button on my site disappear for posts that have been posted to Facebook.

    I am using the Facbook version 1.3 plugin from Github because I heard it fixes the issue. NOT

    For clarity I am using latest WP with Genesis Framwork, Going Green Theme and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook/ version 1.0.2.

    All that apart, the doubling of content is identical.

    Help anyone???

    Thanks!

    I'm also in the same boat.
    You CAN edit your fb-social-publisher.php file to not put in html tags from your content, but it's still Double-Posting the description...

    very annoying!
    i have no idea how to work around it.
    it must be a duplicate-something in how it's fetching and posting the data.

    You are not alone, http://wordpress.org/support/topic/publish-on-facebook-acts-funny-please-help?replies=3

    I'm going to try SFC because this support is really bad.

    @Johnty ... could not agree more ... until FB developers sort this out I have gone back to Facebook Page Publish. I prefer the options and appearance of FB but not the lack of support!!!

    I have noticed that a very long excerpt in the 'facebook status in facebook timeline' sometimes fixes the issue. The meta description and og description are both identical and come from excerpt. But if that is not long enough to fill the entire box, the second line is picked up from content itself.

    I guess that is what the problem is. If i have provided a hand crafted summary, no matter how short, the plugin should not be picking additional info from content itself.

    Facebook version 1.2.3 sorted all issues for me using WP3.5.1. I changed nothing else apart from upgrading to the latest version, no double posts, no spurious html characters any more. Try the obvious and shut down other plugins and see in FB then works.
    Good luck!
