Posting a link on fb will display flare text (4 posts)

    Whenever I share a link of my website on facebook, the flare plugin produces some text that is displayed below the title and website.

    It lists all the counts and social buttons on top of the Meta Descriptions:

    Hi BeaFuhrmann,
    This sounds like Facebook is pulling the content from the page instead of the content specified in the OpenGraph tags. Something like this should do it for you automatically: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook-revised-open-graph-meta-tag/

    For more info on the Open Graph Tags, see this: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraphprotocol/

    I am already using a tool like that, but even specifying meta's for facebook won't change the behaviour. Also installed the suggested plugin and there was no difference.

    Using firebug I can see the flare bar in HTML, but although it's hidden via CSS (I am not displaying a flare bar at the top of a post) the text is pulled in. I guess it could be fixed by removing the HTML for invisible Flare bars, but there mus be another way?

    My fb page displays several of the described cases when I post a link to a specific blog post such as this one: http://www.beatrixfuhrmannphotography.co.uk/2013/03/07/london-engagement-photos-at-the-southbank-ben-chris/

    Thanks for your help.
