Though this shows yet more advantages for getting someone to putting some decent text in your meta tags.
It seems strange that in this day and age you still see large companies creating decent websites but allowing Google and other people to believe their page holds literally nothing.

Check this out: http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=monkey+magazine&btnG=Search&meta=

The second listing in the results is actually the Monkey magazine page. However they've entered no data whatsoever into their meta tags so Google believes the page just tells people they don't have flash.

Not healthy and very surprising for such an innovative magazine.



Thanks for the clarification/education.

I'm learning.

Mike - Facebook is just pulling out the contents of the META description tag on the page you linked to. Flickr haven't paid them to do this....
