I have a multi-site install and a theme that includes a modal pop-up, with options to share the Post to Social Media.
Unfortunately when a visitor clicks on the Facebook Share link it includes unwanted information in the excerpt. For example:
'Share this postPermalinkShare this posttumblrgooglelinkedintechnoratitwitterfacebook...0The Post TitleadminApril 25, 2014 [then the posts excerpt]'
Any help gratefully accepted.
You got this <strong>"Open Graph Warnings That Should Be Fixed":</strong>
Inferred Property The 'og:description' property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.
In your case, you got two instances of:
<!-- <meta name="description" content="..."/>-->
i.e. both are commented out, and that's the reason why Facebook is <strong>guessing</strong> what the og:description' property should be.
Fix this and wait for about 24 hours for the Facebook cache to clear. You can also clear the cache for each page [[LINK href="https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/"]]here[[/LINK]].
Many Thanks DBranes,
On your advice I installed the 'Facebook Open-graph-protocol' plugin which has added the necessary meta tags for Facebook and fixed the problem.
