    I am sure its wired. I have 2 websites, one of which I integrated FB about a week ago. Now I came to my other website and having a wired issue.

    First I had Yoast which had OpenGraph meta data posting to it. Then when I posted it game some multiple url error. Once I uncheked OpenGraph, every thing is ok. It says it posted to timeline. When I click the link that comes, I see the post. Fine!

    But when I go to my TimeLine I don't have it. Rather in the recent activity it shows up.

    Normally when a page is liked, it is posted to the users timeline. But yet again it only shows in the recent activity.

    The funny thing is, I my other website did have the similar issue, but I don't remember how it got fixed. At the moment the configuration is very much similar.

    Here is a link to my page: A Sample Page

    I am badly freaked and am exhausted looking for a solution.

    Situation was as followed:

    1. Default Post Type - No issues - Lands on Fan Page and Publishers Wall
    2. Custom Post Type - On Post - Shows on Users 'Recent Activity' but not on time line as ordinary post type
    3. Ordinary Post - When liked shows on user Timeline with title and description
    4. Custom Post type doesn't show in time line, but is visible in 'Recent Activity'

    Reason: Facebook plugin doesn't post the 'Description' meta value for all post types.

    When analysing the source code for Facebook plugin, I notice it looked for 'exceprt' to put a meta value for 'description'. Since my custom post type doesn't need an excerpt it was not given as a capability.

    First check your theme to see if the custom post type (arguments given to register_post_type( $post_type, $args ) function property)

    What you are looking for is at 'supports' which needs to get 'excerpt' value.
