    Question Adding a facebook link img

    Hey every one I've got a simple on. When you copy and paste a link into face book often times a small image shows up to the left of link with the description.

    So I'm trying to get that to work on a site that I've built. I've read a bit about the open graph meta tags and a few simpler stop gaps but so far no luck.

    Did a bit of reading here but when push came to shove I'm still stuck:

    I'm trying to get the following image to be my FB link Image:
    http://www.eartheasy.johncliffordtay...s/thumb000.png

    So far I have plugged in the flowing HTML code in my <head> area of the with no luck:

    Code:
    <!-- Opengraph protocol. See http://ogp.me/  -->
    <meta property="og:title" content="Earth Easy Pest Control" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="company" />
    <meta property="og:url" content="http://www.eartheasy.johncliffordtaylor.com" />
    <meta property="og:image" content="http://www.eartheasy.johncliffordtaylor.com/images/thumb000.png" />
    Also I've tried the simpler work around mentioned in the above article with no luck:
    Code:
    <link rel="image_src" href="http://www.eartheasy.johncliffordtaylor.com/images/thumb000.png" />
    As always thanks for the help in advance ladies and gents!

    Have a great day!

    .

    At this moment the page can't be loaded...

    Why don't you load from your local storage?

    Exclamation

    The Forum abbreviated the link image URL:
    http://www.eartheasy.johncliffordtay...s/thumb000.png
    In the code the linking is correct.

    I did read the facebook "scrapes" sites every 24 hours looking for images to use at link previews. So hopefully in a few hours the problem will resolve its self.
