Note to Facebook devs:

I wish, as a blogger, I had control over your scraper.

I always post links to my new items here on Facebook.

But your scraper sometimes has already read an early version of the piece, and has pulled an excerpt that has since been edited.

I would like to be able to tell you not to do that. Maybe put some metadata into my feed? The message: wait until I post a link before scraping.

I understand that a lot of sites don’t post links themselves. But I’m not one of them. 😉
