    hello there...

    My problem is, when I share the post of my blog on Facebook Share, the title of the post and its thumbnail won't showing up. It just show its URL.

    And when I click "Like" button in that post, facebook will not show the title of the post that I liked instead of its url.

    Before this, I can share the post perfectly on facebook. But after a moment, when I share the same post again, it only shows its URL and no thumbnail.

    Is this WordPress problem or facebook or my hoster problem?

    You can see my website here : http://www.myevotech.com

    Thank you..

    I had seen some one.You may try search 'facebook 'or 'share ' in your site's dashboard→new plugins.
    My computer has no access to Internet these days,only mobile can ,
    It's pity I can't help more.

    I think we're having the same problem, and if so, these responses do not resolve it. On my site, http://www.inthemeantimeband.com, if you share it using the share button OR BY JUST ENTERING THE URL INTO YOUR STATUS OR LINK SHARE ON FACEBOOK ITSELF, the image and content preview do not display. Adding meta tags do not seem to help this. The strange thing about it is that one, and one only, of my single posts works properly when shared on facebook. Facebook takes the title of the post and the beginning of the text as a preview, but the other posts don't work, as well as just the main page of the site. This makes me think maybe it is a facebook issue. Is this what you are talking about? Have you had any luck? Does anybody know anything about this?

    i noticed a few people have commented that theyve had a similar problem...ill answer even though nobody answered for me...forums are not supposed to be self serving so ill do my part. I never did get a complete fix on this...I wanted to make it so facebook would preview the title, a photo from the post, and the first few lines of text from the post. Again, as mentioned before, there was one post that actually was working this way, but the others weren't and i couldnt find any differences in any of the code.

    The best I've been able to do consistently is to get the post title to display, and a picture from the post, but then instead of the first few lines of text, i can only get it to consistently display a general description of my choosing for all posts. I agree this sucks, but I'd rather have facebook display anything rather than "you can use the following html tags and attributes" heres the code in my "header.php" template in case anybody wants to do this the same way.

    <?php
    /**
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Greyzed
     */
    ?>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
    <head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">
    <meta name="description" content="Hey Guys! We can bate in here!"
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />
    <title><?php wp_title(); ?> <?php bloginfo('name'); ?></title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="screen" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />
    <?php if ( is_singular() ) wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' ); ?>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    </head>

    this line here is the one that makes the description appear in facebook share.

    <meta name="description" content="Hey Guys! We can bate in here!"

    my website is http://www.inthemeantimeband.com in case you want to check to see how it appears when you enter it into the link field in facebook...good luck
    if you find anyhting else out about this, please let me know

    I had a similar problem on my ne blog http://www.dudeiamscrewed.com
    After analyzing found the bug. Change your meta description on ur header.php.It Should look like something similar below.

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />
