How do I change the permalink of a scheduled post so that it can be linked to?

When you create a post of any type (either post or page or custom taxonomy) it gets a permalink that visitors can click on and visit.

However, if you Publish the post, BUT make the publish date in the future, the post is shown as ‘Scheduled’ in the Admin and the permalink shows like so:

And then also, when I try to share the post on Facebook, it does not share properly (ie. the preview text and image do not appear).

I include the FB include code just for completeness. But what I really want to know is–how do I get a ‘scheduled’ post behave like a ‘published’ post when it comes to the purposes of the permalink.

function add_opengraph_doctype( $output ) {
return $output . ‘ xmlns:og=”” xmlns:fb=””‘;
add_filter(‘language_attributes’, ‘add_opengraph_doctype’);

function insert_fb_in_head() {

$og_title = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), ‘_yoast_wpseo_title’, true);

$og_description = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), ‘_yoast_wpseo_metadesc’, true);

if( ! $og_title)
$og_title = get_the_title();

if( ! $og_description){
$og_description = get_the_excerpt();
if ( strlen($og_description) > 156)
$og_description = substr( get_the_excerpt(), 0, 153) . ‘…’;

echo (‘<meta property=”og:title” content=”‘ . $og_title . ‘”/>’ . PHP_EOL);
echo (‘<meta property=”og:type” content=”article”/>’ . PHP_EOL);
echo (‘<meta property=”og:url” content=”‘ . get_permalink() . ‘”/>’ . PHP_EOL);
echo (‘<meta property=”og:site_name” content=”Sea-Tac Noise Information”/>’ . PHP_EOL);
echo (‘<meta property=”og:description” content=”‘ . strip_tags( $og_description) . ‘”/>’ . PHP_EOL);

//dpm( has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID ));
//$thumbnail_src = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), ‘full’ );

if( has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID )) { //the post has a featured image, use a default image
$thumbnail_src = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), ‘full’ );
echo (‘<meta property=”og:image” content=”‘ . esc_attr( $thumbnail_src[0] ) . ‘”/>’ . PHP_EOL);
echo (‘<meta property=”og:image:width” content=”‘ . esc_attr( $thumbnail_src[1] ) . ‘”/>’ . PHP_EOL);
echo (‘<meta property=”og:image:height” content=”‘ . esc_attr( $thumbnail_src[2] ) . ‘”/>’ . PHP_EOL);

$default_image=””; echo (‘<meta property=”og:image” content=”‘ . $default_image . ‘”/>’ . PHP_EOL);
echo (‘<meta property=”og:image:width” content=”250″/>’ . PHP_EOL);
echo (‘<meta property=”og:image:height” content=”250″/>’ . PHP_EOL);
add_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘insert_fb_in_head’, 5 );
