The most complete meta tags for the best looking shares on Facebook, G+, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. - no matter how your webpage is shared!
A solid social markup plugin is the foundation of any good social strategy — NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) allows you to manage the information social websites need, improving Google Search ranking, social engagement, and click-through-rates on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and many more — along with offering many of the most popular social sharing buttons!
Complete Facebook / Open Graph, Pinterest Rich Pin, Twitter Card, SEO meta tags and Schema markup — meta tags and Schema markup are read by Google Search and all social websites, to describe and display your content correctly (title, description, hashtags, images, videos, ecommerce product details, author profile / authorship, publisher name, etc.). NGFB uses the existing content of your webpages to generate complete meta tags and Schema markup — there's no need to manually enter / configure any additional values or settings.
Easy and comprehensive social meta tags and Schema markup — NGFB Pro automatically retrieves and uses information from a wide range or sources, including All in One SEO Pack, bbPress, BuddyPress, Co-Authors Plus, Easy Digital Downloads, HeadSpace2 SEO, NextGEN Gallery, MarketPress - WordPress eCommerce, Polylang, rtMedia for WordPress (BuddyPress and bbPress), The Events Calendar, The SEO Framework, WooCommerce, WP e-Commerce, WordPress REST API, Yoast SEO (aka WordPress SEO), Yotpo Social Reviews for WooCommerce, along with service APIs like Bitly, Google URL Shortener, Gravatar, Ow.ly, Slideshare, TinyURL, Vimeo, Wistia, Your Own URL Shortener (YOURLS), and YouTube.
Don't need the included social sharing buttons? The WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) plugin is a fork / child of NGFB — they have the same author, the same solid core features and code-base, but WPSSO is distributed without the sharing buttons and their related features.

NGFB comes with several sharing buttons, that you can optionally include on Post / Page editing pages, above / below your content or excerpt, bbPress single pages, BuddyPress activity entries, as a sidebar, widget, shortcode, or even call a function from your theme template(s). Each of the following sharing buttons can be enabled, configured, and styled individually:
The Facebook, Google+ and Twitter sharing buttons support multiple languages. A default language can be chosen in the NGFB settings, and the Pro version switches the sharing button language with the webpage language / WordPress locale.

NGFB provides author (Person) and publisher (Organization) social profiles, publisher (Organization) logo, and WebSite Site Name in schema.org JSON-LD format for Google Search and their Knowledge Graph. The author (Person) markup includes the author's website URL, their profile social sharing image, and all listed contact URLs from their user profile.

NGFB adds Open Graph (Facebook), Pinterest Rich Pins, Twitter Cards, and Search Engine Optimization meta tags to the head section of webpages. These meta tags are used by Google Search and all social websites to describe and display your content correctly (title, description, hashtags, images, videos, ecommerce product details, author profile / authorship, publisher, etc.). NGFB is a complete social sharing solution that uses the existing content of your webpages to build HTML meta tags — There's no need to manually enter / configure any additional values or settings (although many settings and options are available in the Pro version). See examples from Google Search, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, etc. — along with screenshots of the NGFB settings pages.
NGFB provides the Summary, Summary with Large Image, and Player Twitter Cards — including configurable image sizes for each card type. The Photo, Gallery, and Product Twitter Cards were deprecated by Twitter on July 3rd, 2015.
Images and Videos
NGFB detects and uses all images - associated or included in your content - including the WordPress image gallery and NextGEN Gallery shortcodes. WordPress Media Library images (and NextGEN Gallery in the Pro version) are resized according to their intended consumer (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc). The Pro version detects embedded videos from Slideshare, Vimeo, Wistia, and Youtube (including preview image, video title, and video description). NGFB Pro also includes support for NextGEN Gallery albums, galleries and images (shortcodes, image tags, album / gallery preview images, etc.).
NGFB Pro integrates with All in One SEO Pack, HeadSpace2 SEO, The SEO Framework, and Yoast SEO (aka WordPress SEO) — making sure your custom SEO settings are reflected in the Open Graph, Rich Pin, Schema, and Twitter Card meta tags.
NGFB Pro also supports Easy Digital Downloads, MarketPress - WordPress eCommerce, WooCommerce, and WP e-Commerce product pages, creating appropriate meta tags for [Facebook Products](https://developers.facebook.com/docs/payments/product/, and Pinterest Rich Pins, including variations and additional / custom images.
Forums and Social
NGFB Pro supports bbPress, BuddyPress (see the BuddyPress Integration Notes), and rtMedia for WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress, making sure your meta tags reflect the page content, including appropriate titles, descriptions, images, author information, etc. Social sharing buttons can also be added to bbPress single template pages and BuddyPress activities.
NGFB is fast and coded for performance, making full use of all available caching techniques (persistent / non-persistent object and disk caching). NGFB loads only the library files and object classes it needs, keeping it small, fast, and yet still able to support a wide range of 3rd party integration features.
NGFB support and development is on-going. You can review the FAQ and Notes pages for additional setup information. If you have any suggestions or comments, post them to the WordPress support forum or the Pro version support website.
