You are correct. Facebook worked properly with the .8 release and the .9 release and the .10 release does not work for AddToAny. The big issue is that they released .9, I believe yesterday… which I updated to all my numerous blogs… and then released .10 today… which I though would fix the Facebook problem. As an entrepreneur (retired now), who has developed many years of innovative software, this type of update release is unacceptable for such a dominant company that many websites depend on. Simple code from Facebook does not depend on AddToAny integration and I don’t believe that other than Twitter, the percentage of exposure with the many other options available from AddToAny makes that much of difference today.
If AddToAny providers are slow or down, your website will not perform correctly and it probably will turn people away. I am considering just using the code directly from Facebook and Twitter and not have to deal with that possibility.
This is actually a Facebook bug that affects mostly new posts & pages – basically any page that Facebook hasn’t crawled and cached yet. We announced the issue with Facebook’s bug on Twitter here. I’ll report back when we hear more from Facebook.
Hi there, I noticed something lately also within the topic of the thumbnails, when users click the Like FB button, the thumbnail pulled is not even the one attached to the post.
I’m using a theme with Custom posts, the thumbnail that was attached in the post was uploaded by the end user, meanwhile, when hitting the FB like button, the thumbnail is randomly pulled from the gallery of another active plugin (DataFeeder random Ads V3), is there a know conflict with this plugin or is this behavior related to the above discussion?
For the record, this issue does not occur if we opt to Publish the post on FB, its just the Like button that is acting that way, had to disable it in the meantime.
Facebook Like doesn’t accept values from AddToAny. Instead, Facebook scrapes your page for these details.
You’ll need to adjust your theme for thumbnail & description issues. Troubleshooting with Facebook’s tool will give you a lot of insight into how Facebook is reading your pages: http://developers.facebook.com/tools/lint/
