WPBook
WordPress post title as the Facebook Page status (4 posts)

    When posting a link to Facebook, there's the option to add a status comment along with the link, which through allot of testing has been proven to be more effective than just posting a link.

    Is there a way to have WPbook add the post title of the post to the status when publishing a post to Facebook the same way the RSS Graffiti Facebook app does? (Screenshot Below)

    If you provide an excerpt using the "Post Excerpt" field provided by WordPress, that should be used as your "status" message in FB.

    I've had on the roadmap for a while a specific meta box (like the yes/no for publish to fb) which would let you set a message - you could put the title in there.

    The excerpt function would be fine except that wouldn't work in my theme since excerpts are used in many different places in most themes of today and Google would also count that a duplicate content since the title and the excerpt would be the same thing and the excerpt is read by Google as the description.

    I just wanted a way to pass the post title as the status on Facebook.

    In the next significant release I will add the ability to set the "message" directly, separate from Excerpt. I may (time allowing) also add the option to default that message to post title.
