Hello I'm having problems with sharing my news page on facebook.  I'm using asp.net and master pages.  When the user wants to share some news on facebook,  the metatag of the master page appears on facebook instead of the news itself.  I'm not sure how to display the content of news instead of the metatag.

the news are kept in an access-database.

What I've done is to define the metatag in the page_load of the newspage like this:


                HtmlMeta tag2 = new HtmlMeta();
                tag2.Name = "description";
                tag2.Content = "Description of page";
                 Page.Header.Controls.Add(tag2);


So now I can change the description of the page,  but I really want is to get the content of the news to my facebook like the news that I took from BBC and you can see in the  picture.

When I try to share my website I only get the list of the metatag keyword.


hope someone can help me
