Support » Plugin: Open Graph Protocol Framework » Different descriptions for different Facebook like/share buttons

    Let me tell you at the beginning, that I think I do not need the Open Graph Protocol Framework or similar plugin.
    I am having All-in-One SEO pack, free version where I can directly set up the details for how the shared post will look on Facebook. However, it does not seem to do the job. Regardless of my settings, like having unticked the Autogenerate Descriptions, and typed specific sentence which I want to be shown in the Facebook post, it still displays the beginning of the text of the blog, hence it autogenerates the description.

    Since the purchased theme I have only supports the LIKE button, not the SHARE button for Facebook, I have enabled also the sharing button via Sharing, under the Settings of WordPress. What is interesting, these two Facebook features behave differently. While the Theme inbuilt Like button displays the snippet as I have set it up, the WordPress Setting-Sharing button for Facebook keeps showing the autogenerated content under the title and next to the featured image.

    Can you explain and help how to fix it? I want to share my blog post on my Facebook wall, but I cannot do it because the autogenerated content appears there despite I have disabled this option and typed a specific content, which only shows when I like my post. This is such a mystery to me and it seems to be a persistent problem.

    Here are the screen shots of:

    PS: I have posted it here as I thought it was relevant, because this plugin and the All-in-One SEO are using basically the same function.
