[resolved] Facebook Update and blog title are duplicate (4 posts)

    Why is the Facebook Update and the Blog Post title the same? (see pink arrows) Can that be stopped or can I modify something to stop that?

    Will SFC allow me to move the green portion of my post to the indicated position?


    NOTE, I am using Gravity Forms to merge my Post Excerpt and Post Body fields into the final Post Body which is saved as a post.


    Any and all guidance is appreciated.

    That's intentional. In my testing, it seems to slightly affect the scoring FB uses to determine relevance for the news feed.

    In other words, FB posts with more than just links tend to rank a bit higher and get more views.

    Thank you for your response. So, can I assume that it is not an easy modification to change it so that the Excerpt is the Facebook update and the blog post title and first portion of the post content appear below?

    I just re-read your response and agree with you about encouraging views. I think we are still mis-understanding each other.

    This is my goal, which I think will produce some decent click throughs and contain all the possible keywords.


    So is this possible with SFC?
