NextGEN Facebook - Complete Meta Tags for FB, Google, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn & More

Display your content in the best possible way on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. - no matter how your webpage is shared!

New versions of the plugin are released approximately every week (more or less). New features are added, tested, and released incrementally, instead of grouping them together in a major version release. When minor bugs fixes and/or code improvements are applied, new versions are also released. This release schedule keeps the code stable and reliable, at the cost of more frequent updates.
