    The snippet of the story is not shared when trying to share my post on facebook and I noticed that the same happens when a search of the domain is made in google. Can any one help me to fix this? I will be most grateful. thank you

    Kachib,

    Chances are that Google cannot read the content of your site. Do you have any text content on the page? Is it hidden from users or from search engines? Also, Google won’t show content that doesn’t meet its usage guidelines.

    You could try searching here for an answer. My guess would be its something else besides those things if Facebook isn’t picking it up either.

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    Very interesting. That doesn't explain why snippets are not appearing in SERP's though.

    Try to put the same content on a blogger or tumblr and then share the post from there.

    It will let you know if there is a problem with the snippet on your website or just facebook is not able to grab the content.
