[resolved] Cannot get thumbnails when I share pages on Facebook (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I have finished designing my website, but I have a problem. Whenever I share the page or any article on the website on facebook, I do not get the thumbnails or the title of the article on the share screen. I did code the meta tag and link rel tag. Tried hard coding the values to image on my gallery, but nothing works. Appreciate any help here!

    Here is the link to the article I want to share: http://picsbynik.byethost9.com/2012/05/22/photography-basics-for-absolute-beginners/
    and here is a part of the HTML output of the website:

    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 3.3.2" />
    <link rel='shortlink' href='http://picsbynik.byethost9.com/?p=56' />
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="Nikhil Unnikrishnan Photography" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="website" />
    <link rel="image_src" href="http://picsbynik.byethost9.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Blog_article_thumbnail.png" />
    <meta property="og:image" content="http://picsbynik.byethost9.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Blog_article_thumbnail.png" />
    <meta property="og:title" content="Photography Basics for Absolute Beginners" />
    <meta property="og:url" content="http://picsbynik.byethost9.com/2012/05/22/photography-basics-for-absolute-beginners/" />

    The share button does work on the page, but even that does not display an image thumbnail or article title. I tried googling, but nothing worked for me. Please help me out here if you have any ideas.

    Regards,
    Nik

    If anyone happens to stumble on this one. I found the root cause of the issue. The hosting server byethost9.com is considered spammy by facebook and therefore does not allow any content with byethost9.com in the url to be shared on it!
