Please Help With a Permalink Problem in Wordpress

I have been searching the web and this site for 2 days trying to find the answer to this question. I think I have a permalinks problem but am not sure.

When someone "likes" one of my blog posts, this is what it looks like:
Joan Smith Why You Should Get a CatJoanSmith

my name, space, article title, space then my name again with no space.

(that was an example above (not using my real name and not a real post)

I can't figure out how to fix this.

I am set to the default permalink setting. No matter what I do it does not seem to change.

Do anyone know what may be wrong? I'd be so grateful.

    I have a video that covers permalinks. Not sure if this will help you or not here is the link. Once on the page just scroll down a bit and you'll see the video controller.

    Hi Little Grey,

    This does not sound like a permalink issue. Do you have a SEO plugin installed?

    If you have many plugins installed it can sometimes cause compatibility issues.

    Try disabling your plugins and re-enabling them until the problem appears.

    You should be able to isolate the problem like that.

    Right on, I don't think that is a permalink issue. What is the page title? That sounds like what is happening, is that extra info is in your page title.

    I deactivated every plugin and then reactivated them, and it did the trick. Thank you, for all those who replied.
