Facebook/Google Plus Descriptions cut off (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I recently moved from All in One SEO to WordPress SEO. I enabled the "Add OpenGraph meta data" box and put %%excerpt%% as the description in front page settings.

    I expected my site to appear the same as it was before when linked to Facebook and Google Plus (by using the buttons on my site or copy and pasting a url).

    However, now the descriptions cut off mid sentence, whereas before it would display the full content of posts (my posts are short but sometimes a bit longer than 156). Is there a way to return it to posting the full content without manually changing the meta description on each post? Or even making it so that when a post gets cut off there is an ellipsis and it doesn't look so abrupt.

    My site is http://www.profootballhotreads.com and here would be a sample post getting cut off by the said social media:

    Note: I also experienced a double title issue but it was resolved when I deactivated an opengraph plug in.

    In edit post section, under the post do you have anything in the "excerpt" field or is it empty?

    Actually, there isn't an excerpt section in my edit post section.

    The %%excerpt%% in the description doesn't appear to be the issue as I did try it with that box blank.

    Interestingly, if I use a link to a url from my site's in site search results, it does use an allipsis in Social Media.
