Customise Facebook icon and descriptions

27 September 2012

Share a link on Facebook to a webpage that hasn’t been developed very thoroughly and you will notice that Facebook pulls in an outdated and (often) irrelevant thumbnail, title and blurb. If you add these three tags you can customise what Facebook shows when a link is shared. Just drop it in the of your pages and modify as you would like it to read.

<meta property="og:title" content="title" />
<meta property="og:description" content="description" />
<meta property="og:image" content="thumbnail_image" />
