Facebook Share App ID

  • I was trying to find out why the 'og: description' tag is not read by facebook when sharing an article from the cms, it seems the app_id metatag is missing:

    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.

    I think this is the problem why its not reading the og:description tag...

  • demon326 The fb:app_id property has nothing to do with the description, but it allows to gather more metrics for the site owner. As such I have moved this thread into the suggestions forum instead.
