Yoast SEO + Social Snap plugin = Suicide

Just sharing this here for anyone using yoast SEO + Social snap plugin

If u install Social snap plugin, it tries to output Social meta tags. While doing this, they knock off Yoast SEO’s meta tags and Yoast schema

For 3 months, my site didnt have schema and unfortunately i was into multiple things and didnt notice this. When i did notice it, i have removed social snap completely.

What this also told me is - I will now never ignore my source code when installing new plugins. Normally i always check my source code and what a plugin changed in the source code.

Thought of informing it here. And i have already written to social snap and they are getting it repaired.
