Complete meta tags for the best looking shares on Facebook, Google, Pinterest, Twitter, etc - no matter how your webpage is shared!
NGFB uses your existing content to generate its meta tags and Schema markup — there's no need to manually enter / configure any additional settings or values, but if you want to, you can customize just about anything and everything. ;-).
NGFB creates complete and accurate social meta tags and Schema markup — including titles, descriptions, hashtags, images, videos, ecommerce product details, author profile / authorship, co-authors, publisher information, ratings, event details, recipe information, and much more — all from your existing content.
NGFB provides all the information social websites and search engines need — improving social engagement, Google Search ranking, and click-through-rates on Facebook, Google Search / Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and many more.
NGFB includes special support and optimization features for Pinterest — providing customized Pinterest image sizes, and avoiding conflicts between incompatible Pinterest and Facebook Open Graph meta tags.
Don't need the included social share buttons?
The WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) plugin is a fork / child of NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) — they have the same author, the same solid core features and code-base, but WPSSO is distributed without the social share buttons and their related features. Additional Free extension plugins are also available for WPSSO, including two different types of sharing button extensions:
NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) Free / Basic Features
NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) Pro / Power-User Features
Purchase the Pro version (includes a No Risk 30 Day Refund Policy).
NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) comes with several social share 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 social share buttons can be enabled, configured, and styled individually:
The Facebook, Google+ and Twitter social share buttons support multiple languages. A default language can be chosen in the NGFB settings, and the Pro version switches the social share button language with the webpage language / WordPress locale. NGFB can also include hashtags from WordPress and NextGEN Gallery tag names in the Open Graph (Facebook) and Pinterest Rich Pin descriptions, Tweet text, and other social captions.
NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) includes support for author (Person) and publisher (Organization) social profiles, publisher (Organization) logo, and WebSite site name in Schema JSON-LD format for Google Search and their Knowledge Graph. The author (Person) markup includes the author's website URL, their social sharing image, and contact URLs. The publisher (Organization) markup includes the website URL, a corporate logo, the website default image, and the publisher Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Twitter business pages.

NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) adds Facebook / Open Graph, Pinterest Rich Pins, Twitter Cards, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) 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 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 example screenshots from Google Search, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, etc..
Images and Videos

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 Facebook, Slideshare, Vimeo, Wistia, and Youtube (including preview image, video title, and video description). NGFB (Pro version) also includes support for NextGEN Gallery albums, galleries and images (shortcodes, image tags, album / gallery preview images, etc.).

NGFB requires PHP v5.2.0 or better, and is fully compatible with PHP v7.
