    Dear All.

    I have my wordpress site and it always worked fine when sharing on Facebook my posts using the plugin “add to any” until few months ago (title and description were correctly shared on the social network).
    The situation unfortunately changed some months ago, and now when i share my post on facebook, i got this
    – as title, add to any shares the title of my site (and not the post)
    – as description, it shares the tags (and not part of the content, the excerpt).

    I have tried to to debug it with the facebook developer tool.
    https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/
    and actually there are errors like this in “Warnings That Should Be Fixed” section
    Inferred Property
    The ‘og:url’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.
    Inferred Property
    The ‘og:title’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.
    Inferred Property
    The ‘og:description’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.
    Inferred Property
    The ‘og:image’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.
    Share App ID Missing

    The ‘fb:app_id’ property should be explicitly provided, Specify the app ID so that stories shared to Facebook will be properly attributed to the app. Alternatively, app_id can be set in url when open the share dialog.
    Inferred Property
    The ‘og:image’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.

    Is there any user who had the same issue and tried to solve it successfully? So it would be nice to have the workaround. Otherwise, any one that has any suggestion and it will be welcome.
    if you need my blog post i can provide you the URL, and so you can try yourself.

    last but not least, with Twitter i don’t get the same error and i share correctly the post title.

    Thanks in advance,
    Paolo
