biohazardEverybody uses at least one or more enterprise file sharing and sync (EFSS) consumer app, at least now and then. These include Dropbox, Angry Birds, Facebook, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Box, WhatsApp, Twitter, Skype or SugarSync. In fact, a lot of people use most of them for a combination of personal and business purposes.

WordPress “All in One SEO” Facebook problem

Apparently due to recent changes, WordPress blogs with All in One SEO will not automatically post to FaceBook. After some web searching and multiple test messages, the root cause seems to be the All in One SEO plugin not writing “og” tags right for FaceBook, so FaceBook refuses to post. Posting to FaceBook by clicking the Share button under the post works normally.

I am not sure how to fix this in All in One SEO, although my understanding is that this is a configuration error on my part.

Here is a taste of Fred’s patter:

“Social media may have started out as a fun way to connect with friends, but it has evolved to become a powerful tool for education and business. Sites such as Facebook and Twitter and tools such as Skype are connecting students to learning opportunities in new and exciting ways.”

One interesting aspect of this web site is that it is designed to be accessible to the visually impaired.
