Garbage on Facebook when I post a WordPress link

    When I post my WordPress link to Facebook, the entry on Facebook comes up with garbage as follows:

    ---------------------------------

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:ye...

    This also showed up on the WordPress blog, but I cut it and it looked okay. However, it still shows up on Facebook when I post the link. This is happening with both of my blogs.

    I've posted blog links to Facebook successfully in the past. This problem just started a few days ago.

    The blog I need help with is pamelafosterspeakerwriter.wordpress.com.

  2. You copied and pasted from Microsoft WORD into your post and it went out on the feed with the WORD formatting code in it.

    Edit the post to remove that code > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/

    Microsoft Word is a word processing program that’s not compliant with web standards. The result of copy and pasting from Microsoft Word into the Tiny MCE editor in WordPress blogs can be unexpected, unless you know how to use the built-in features in the Visual editor for using Word cleanly. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    Note you need to click the kitchen sink icon #15 at the end of Row 1 to have Row 2 appear. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#row-1

    Go here and enable this > Settings > Writing
    Formatting
    _ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically
    "save changes"

    You may want to try using Windows Live Writer for posting to your blog > http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/windows-live-writer/
