I like to post links of our blog entries on facebook. When i copy and past the link it shows the pictures from two post prior and the text from one prior blog entry. If I use this link http://www.buckhillfarm.net/blog/busy-winter , it displays the correct picture but the text is incorrect. Any ideas? Thank you

    Hi Andrew:

    Part of the problem revolves around how Facebook grabs the content from your site in the first place. Then once you've posted something once, Facebook will cache the photo content so new posts will show up with old photos. It can be difficult to control.

    I did a little searching around and did find this note talking about ways to control the image and text that show up. I haven't had a chance to test any of this out, but depending on how comfortable you feel trying any of this out, but it might be worth looking over:

    Probably the easiest solution is just when you are posting a new blog post would be to type a quick recap in the status update field, so something like "We just posted a new blog update about some of the things happening on the farm. We're really excited about X, Y and Z. Read more below. [LINK]"
