  • Summary changed from Content in g post is not proper. to Sharing ad count on Google+ does not contain any mentions of ads or Adblock Plus

This is not something we can fix, unfortunately. Google+ simply doesn't allow us to define a text for the share dialog. It only allows us to specify a URL.

However, since the issue is described as "Ads and adblockplus is not mentioned." we could change the URL so that instead of specifying the Maxthon homepage we could either use the Adblock Plus homepage or a new Maxthon landing page which prominently mentions "Adblock Plus".
