Website redirecting to Google Maps when opening in Facebook App's Mobile browser
We are having a problem in the Facebook iPhone app with embedded google maps on our blog. The url is: http://www.thisworldrocks.com/
You will need the Facebook app in order to duplicate the issue, but here is what is happening:
If someone goes to our site FROM the Facebook app mobile browser, and they land on a page that includes an embedded google map, they are automatically redirected to that google map page in the Safari browser.
For example, a user starts to load this page: http://www.thisworldrocks.com/destinations/visiting-gettysburg/ on an iphone facebook app mobile browser, they will get redirected to: https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=204396818963486622460.0004d2b641b944f35355f&hl=en&ie=UTF8&t=m&ll=39.818821,-77.226677&spn=0.032962,0.21595&z=12&output=embed
Our homepage has a google map embed in the side rail, and many of our blog posts have a map embedded in the main body, so this issue is hurting our referral traffic from our facebook page.
Does anyone know a way to fix this issue?
