So I'm working on this website for a client that is primarily based around photos, it's a gallery of a couple hundred photos arranged in tiles.

Each tile is a location in the world. When you click on a tile, it opens up a gallery and shows more photos from that location.

You can then share this to facebook and consequently on the returning link, pull up this particular place from the URL's parameters.

I found a way to build unique facebook shareable "pages" although they still use the same parent page, just that the template is rendered with different meta tags/opengraph tags.

So for example the url structure is something like:

http://somewebsite.com/places/?place=place-1

similarly another site would have a "unique page" like this:

http://somewebsite.com/places/?place=place-2

Both places are served under the same index file under the places directory but they're built differently with PHP and the information passed as parameters.

It takes a few seconds for facebook to create the shareable post with the URL but it works.

I just think this is not good for SEO because the same page has different meta tag/open graph tags, unless this is common practice.

I just figured you needed unique pages for every facebook share button to do it "correctly". While my method works, I don't think it is correct.

I'd appreciate any information.
