    Like the title says. Whenever I (or anyone else) share a post from my blog to FaceBook, the character "Â" is added anywhere I have link in the original blog post. I can edit the  out of the FaceBook share window, but only when I share the post, not if someone else shares it. The extra characters don't appear if the plugin is deactivated.

    I believe you may be having the same issue we have had on our sites. The issue is that the entity transformation for the og:description tag does not respect the blog's charset.

    To change this, edit the fun.inc.php file in the plugin, line 65. Change @htmlentities to esc_attr and the problem should be resolved.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I've since deleted the plugin and found another one that functions normally.
