Description for Facebook


Description For Facebook is a plugin which helps you getting more engagement for you site through organic shares and likes.
It simply add few lines of code which add a new meta-description in the page only if the code recognize that the viewer is the fb’s crawler/spider.
With a meta description optimized for facebook,you can use all of those words that you normally don’t (eg: like, share, comment, tag) because they are not good for google, which improve the engagement of your fan (study of BuddyMedia).

The plugin is complitely free and credits-free. As a donation, you can write about it and link to my italian blog.

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress (no options are required)
  3. Simply Begin to edit old post or write some new ones using the fb optimized description.

Please, pay attention. Facebook crawler use cache to remember the title, the description and the thumb of the url that have been shared/liked. In order to refresh your meta-content after optimizing it, visit the Facebook Url Linter and use it properly 😉
