Do I suffer from duplicate content?
I have a PR3 blog, most articles of which rank well in Google. I post an article in this blog.
I post the same article in my Facebook note, which has few updates.
I'm not sure whether the article in my blog and the Facebook note will be treated as duplicate content. If search engine finds the two article at the same time, which one will Google index?
Please help me , thanks！

Why not post a link to the blog in FB rather than re-posting the blog?

Tesk-ok, your advice is great.

It is indeed duplicate content.
To be on the safeside, post the FB note after google indexes your blog post.
Or do exactly as Test-Ok says above.
or include a link to the original article in the FB Note.
So Google gives your blog posts higher importance.

Many Web masters Lost their Ranking on Date before 19th Jan While The Panda Refresh is Announced on Date 21st Jan. Do not use same content for various submissions, even article spinner is also not much of use these days...

Duplicate content is duplicate content at the end of the day, and if your posting your content a well know, well crawled and authoritative site like FB, google is likely to see FB as the original source and your site as taking the content from FB, thus in risk of not ranking so well for the content and possibly being punished for duplicate content!
You could do a mix of the above like I do with my blog!
For example, with my blog I publish content on a daily basis which is also sent to the FB page for the blog, but I only send a snippet of each blog post with a link to the full post. Also these updates on the FB page can be sent after the original post on my blog, but I don't tend to do that as I am only ever sending a snippet of each post to FB meaning I don't have to worry about any duplicate content problems.

Good call but I take it even a step further than that; I don't allow my staff to post snippets that are copied from the original post. Instead they are required to write an original snippet describing the post that it links to. Paranoid? Yes

Yes if you have the resources (time and staff) to do that its worth doing, but posting a snippet from your posts will not do any harm, so I don't think you need to write an original snippet each time personally. For example, my blog is a side project I run of my own back which generally gets at least a few posts a day so I have the posting to my social networks automated as I simply wouldn't have the time to do it all by hand during work hours.
