Wrong descriptions in facebook share (6 posts)

    Hi Im hoping someone out there can help me Ive been trying numerous social share plugins such as add to any and share and follow but no matter which plugin I use the facebook share description is always wrong in that the text is nothing to do with the page or post but rather a list of the social media descriptions! Really struggling with this now. Have also used facebook fix plugin and SEO to try and update meta descriptions but nothing has worked.. Hope someone can help...
    My site is at http://www.pigstockthemovie.co.uk/
    Many thanks, John

    AddToAny works without interfering with your meta tags. You just need to get the tags right for Facebook.

    Try running Facebook's debugger each time you make a change so that FB refreshes the cache of your shared page:

    Thanks for the info micropat Have half solved the problem in that I recreated and trashed the old posts and now shares on posts and pages seem to work fine Its just when I manually share the homepage that the same problem occurs.. Guess I can live with that for now but would like to sort it Have installed platinum seo and filled in homepage description and keywords etc but doesn`t seem to have worked....

    Glad you got it resolved. Now just reenable AddToAny and your site will be optimized for sharing, universally. :)
