    Hi, I noticed today after using the plugin on LinkedIn that it pushes the the title as the URL, and not the title. So, when it posts on LI there is no title. I can use addthis button at top of page and that one works, but not your plugin. Looking at the URL created, it looks like this:
    http://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&url=http%3A%2F%2Fsend2pressnewswire.com%2F2011%2F09%2F12%2Fs2p5230_152245.php&title=http%3A%2F%2Fsend2pressnewswire.com%2F2011%2F09%2F12%2Fs2p5230_152245.php&ro=false&summary=&source=

    contrast that with
    http://twitter.com/share?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsend2pressnewswire.com%2F2011%2F09%2F12%2Fs2p5230_152245.php&text=Professional+Community+Management+of+California%2C+Inc.+Signs+Park+Paseo

    where the story title is in the URL.

    You would think Linkedin might ping the page to get title, but it doesn't look to be doing that ...
