According to my tests, %-encoding the URL works.

So if your URL is <http://www.example.com/foo%20bar?foo=0&bar=1#foobar>, you need to use "http://www.example.com/foo%2520bar%3Ffoo%3D0%26bar%3D1%23foobar" as the url or href parameters of the Facebook or Google URLs. Note how the space in the URL gets double-encoded to %2520.

How did you encode your URL when you made your tests?
