    How to Fix?

    When you share data with a social network, the network API reads the information from special tags called “Social Media Optimization Tags”. Those tags no matter generated from Easy Social Share Buttons or other plugin has default values based on the post content (automatically generated).

    When you select a top content location (top of content, post vertical float, float from the content top, follow me bar) the share buttons appear as part of the content. And other plugins that generated automatically social share optimization tags may read the share buttons as part of the content and show the share values in the description. That will not appear when you personalize the values of sharing (because the automatic messages won’t appear).

    The solution of this is to enable and use tags that plugin generates for social media optimization. The tags generated by plugin know when the data is automatically populated and they will never append share values in the information.

And for the problem you look for a solution, this should be that tags generated by Easy Social Share Buttons for WordPress.
