Facebook share - Showing Image and Header only?

Facebook share - Showing Image and Header only?

Hi
After upgrading JFBC to the latest release I noticed that when a share something on FB it only shares the image and the headline but nit the text in the original blog pots.
Look at the Range Rover post here:
https://www.facebook.com/driver2driver?ref=hl

No text from the original blog post but you will see that older posts have text.
This only started occurring after the latest upgrade to JFBC.

But
1- Social Debug shows the posts correctly with the text
and
2- It seems to be happening with new posts only, old posts work fine

Re: Facebook share - Showing Image and Header only?

JFBConnect is using the default meta description tag and using that as the og:description tag for the page. The meta description tag has a funny character at the beginning though:

Code:

<meta name="description" content="� Want to see a sporty Range Rover drift and jump? Thought so.This is the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover SVR." />

That funny character looks to be preventing Facebook from scanning/seeing the og:description tag. I'd investigate where that character is being set in the meta description and fix it. When that's done, run your page through the Open Graph Debug tool again and hopefully things should be fixed up:

I hope that helps,
Alex
