    My site is http://hookupyourmusic.com, and when I post that simple link on my Facebook status, it puts the posted link title as the title of a blog post. I need this fixed ASAP. Any ideas how to solve this? Because I can't find any other answers online.

    ok i changed it to this:

    <title><?php bloginfo("name", "display"); ?> <?php if ( is_single() ) { ?> <?php } ?> <?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    is that still correct?

    Just have Facebook Comments for WordPress. I already deactivated all my plugins and it's still showing up on Facebook incorrectly.

    I should mention that on the site, the titles show up correctly in my browser. But when I post the root website link on my status on someone's wall, it pulls a different title than what the site specifies. I just posted it and it links to the homepage, but the Facebook Posted Item link title is the most recent blog post.

    It's very confusing lol.
