Social ignores excerpt? (10 posts)

    The settings for Social don't allow you to choose the excerpt as something to post to FB:

    How you would like posts to be formatted when broadcasting to Twitter or Facebook?
    Tokens:

    {url} - Example: http://wp.me/p1D6F4-1PY
    {title}
    {content}
    {date} - Example: 2012-10-26 23:40:57
    {author}

    but the preview page shows the excerpt when there is one to show. That's nice, except on publishing, it just publishes a glob of content to FB anyway.

    Is there a way to fix this? This would be my number one feature request although getting rid of the publishing interstitial page would be high up there too.

    We too are interested in a reply here please.

    We would like to broadcast the excerpts only - not the content...

    Thank you!

    My bad. I was able to quite easily remove the token for content. Additionally, Social published one of my Post's excerpt correctly.

    @ mtibesar, how were you able to get Social to pull the excerpt?

    I am not sure but, it does publish my excerpts correctly on fb.

    In my settings I have:

    Settings -- Social -- Post broadcast format {title}:{url}

    By the way, as a matter of habit, I always complete my Excerpt fields when writing posts.
