Facebook uses OpenGraph metatags that requires to use a namespace on html tag.

In your base template, add the following line in the html tag:

<html {{

You need to generate an app_id. Without this property you will lose admin right on the Open Graph Facebook Page.

Gzip activation

It could be that content sharing on facebook require the Gzip activation. The Facebook debugger will display no data or incomprehensible errors in this case.

To resolve it, set the cache.gzip to true in system.yaml configuration file.
