I was having bazaar issues with not being able to share my joomla articles well on Facebook. It would pull my home page photos and paragraphs instead of the articles. I installed this extension, and it still didn't work, but with support from Perfect Link, they helped me find the problem which was another, conflicting extension. Once I turned the other one off, BAM, it worked! Very easy to use and fantastic support.

Very useful as it gets the og: fields all under one plugin.

Also, the dev is very helpful; I had an issue with getting FB to recognise the og:image size which was caused by an article on my site and not the plugin. The dev went out of his way to help me get to the bottom of it and my share and like buttons are perfectly tamed!

Well worth the low cost.

I've tried a few plugins for adding open graph-tags in joomla, this is the best so far because:

1. It works with php allow_url_fopen = off
2. It can use joomlas "Intro image" or "Full article image" for the OG image tag.

I do not like that the plugin name and branding is added as a comment in the source code for the web site though. For a paid plugin this should be avoided.

Would be nice if it could support twitter card tags as well.
Owner's reply

This comment is only the name of plugin used by our support for checking if open graph tags on customer site are generated by our plugin or some another. Our branding does not have any link-back, is not being indexed by search-bots and does not display to your site visitors. It does not have any influence on your site. But if you do not like to have a comment with plugin name then you can easily remove one line from source code.
We sell subscriptions with access to our software and not a copyrights.

This is my first ever review. I haven't tried the free version but pro version is extremely good and does what it says. The developer is so so supportive that when I wanted something specific he changed it in the extension. Response was almost immediate. I love this extension and will highly recommend this to anyone having problems with facebook thumbnails...

I must admit that the free version was good, but when I saw the possibilities given by this version it became clear to me that posting nearly everything from my site to Facebook will be much easier now. Even I'm not a very experienced Joomla user I had no problem to install this extension and article images from my soccer website on Facebook are much better now.
