AddThis Sharing and SEO

Hi everyone, first post here.

I’m trying to include AddThis to my site and fix my meta tags for social integration.

Link to my beta site: (hosted on Meteor)

First question: How do I get AddThis to refresh properly? Is anyone using this successfully? I have the AddThis object in my page and I’m trying to call refresh() each time a new post loads but the toolbar isn’t displaying. Any suggestions here would be incredibly helpful.

Second question: My < meta > tags for social sharing and whatnot aren’t rendering into the < head > element. I’ve tried a few different libraries with no consistent success (the inconsistency is extremely frustrating). Here’s a scraped version of what Facebook sees. You can see the tags are showing up in the body of the page, does anyone have any suggestions for good libraries or fixes that might help? I’m currently using Lookback for SEO but I think it might be conflicting with FastRender?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
