Questions about sharing via Facebook

  1. Hi, I have two questions about sharing my posts via Facebook.

    First, when I share a post, none of the content/text/description from the post shows up. Only the title and an image. ??? I don't know why. I have several other WordPress blogs, and I don't have this issue with any of the others. Here's a sample post so you can see what I mean:

    http://travelforfreebook.wordpress.com/2011/02/18/seattle-on-a-shoestring-free-hotel-stay/

    Second, do I have to choose between a Facebook share and like button? I'd really love to have both of them in my social media sharing options - is this possible?

    Thanks!
    Shelley

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

  2. Hi there,
    I cannot answer your first question. The answer to your second question is found here and it's good news. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/its-possible-facebook-share-and-like-buttonsat-the-same-time?replies=61

    I tried sharing the URL that starts with wp.me and I indeed get no description by default. However when I try manually sharing the full URL, I get the description as usual. I read somewhere that Facebook caches site titles, descriptions and thumbnails for about 24 hours. So try again in 24 hours with the short URL...
