Problem with WordPress permalinks & Facebook share (1 post)

    Recently, my site has been experiencing weird inconsistencies when sharing to Facebook.

    The site is: http://owlandbear.com

    Sometimes (not all the time), Facebook only picks up the URL, not the description or the title, leading to FB posts that look like this:

    https://www.facebook.com/owlandbear/posts/233023273477370

    Other times, it appears to work fine right off the bat:

    https://www.facebook.com/owlandbear/posts/428129927210844

    The only way to fix this the problem seems to be to change the WordPress permalink AFTER the post has been published. Using a custom permalink before a post is published does not yield consistent results, but if I change the permalink after a post is published, it always fixes the problem.

    Any thoughts on why this might be occurring?

    I have tried disabling all plugins, and even using different themes (like 2011), and it continues to do it. It also does it regardless of whether I use default permalinks or the date & name permalinks.
