Since the beginning of the year I noticed that Facebook share on scheduled posts that were now published, were coming as 404s in the facebook pop up.
It worked fine a while before that, so i guess Facebook’s crawler now pre-fetches any page with the share/like buttons, whereas previously it would only crawl on the first share/like.
This is only a problem if you use scheduled posts extensively and you preview your posts on your pages before they go live.
So to fix:
Wrap your facebook code like so:
<?php $p_status = get_post_status( $post ); if ($p_status == 'publish') : ?> <fb:share-button href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" type="button_count"></fb:share-button> <?php else: echo ''; endif; ?>
