then I would recommend using a link shortener like bitly.com. If the link length doesn't fit within the allotted space it won't fully display.

thanks searchdemand, using a url short also the same problem, why a url looked so complete on facebook, not appearing title page on facebook?
How to solve the problem? thanks :)

Try adding a title to that page/post in the meta title tag. If there is no title the link will show a snippet from the post/page which will get also cut off

Try adding a Heading to that page/post in the meta title tag or Tittle bar.(Ex) If I write here " that was a dark night in that highway and blah blah " you will get confused what am saying if I give you a TITLE like MY STORY ON DARK HIGHWAY now you can assume my story. Facebook user can easily understand your thoughts.
