NGFB – Social Meta Tags vs Social Buttons

This video explains the difference between social meta tags and social buttons. Generally, social buttons only send the webpage URL to the social website, which then fetches the HTML for that URL in the background, parses the meta tags for the title, description, images, etc., before displaying the information it gathered in a sharing popup.

NGFB is a complete social sharing package for WordPress websites to improve publishing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google Search and many more (see https://wordpress.org/plugins/nextgen-facebook/ for more info).
