    One of the tricks to make Facebook recognize the correct data is by using the Facebook Debugger to check the link, before you share it. Sometimes you have to get the test scrape information multiple times before it’s properly recognized.

    This seems to be a ‘bug’ in facebook, instead of our plugin, but using the debugger oftentimes is a good work-around.

    I’ve noticed the same thing with the images.
    Facebook simply ignores the sharing image set via Yoast Seo and puts the featured image instead, the only way to get over it is use facebook debugger, but even then it will not be for long, when it recaches the link – it grabs featuread image again, ignoring the og image.

    Is there a way to fix this somehow?
    thanks.
