    When an individual hits the like button on my blog page a photo shows on there timeline, HOWEVER this photo is NOT linking back to my blog.

    ....all that happens is a new page is opened and it times out!

    this is very alarming as my content will not get distributed, can anyone lend some advice.

    I will try and expand a little...

    when a friend sees that I have liked a blog post in his timeline and clicks on that link on his time line a new window opens however the new window just times out?

    I ran the url through the debugger and the it looks to me like it should work but it still will not link?

    The strange thing is when I click on the timeline link it DOES work for me?

    HELP? anyone?

    That is the redirect through you Facebook Application because your application is NOT ON FACEBOOK, but your website itself.

    The same links appear to my friends when they like my content.

    I clicked on the link I liked from your website on my profile, the page redirects well to your website. One link is the page that I liked and the other is the home webpage that you set in developer app.

    Check out my website and test some links with your like to see it's the same. http://www.fotoshooting.ro or Photography e-books

    Hi Costi,

    Thanks for all your time helping test.

    What I found was slightly different from what i think you understand.
    I will try and describe it better.

    If you open my site and into a post and like the post that will
    1. leave a notification on your page saying you liked the page
    2. It will also place a story in the news feed, so others ie friends of friends can see the content.

    What i found was the 2nd did not link for example when a friend of yours sees the news-feed he will be able to see that you liked my blog post, however when he clicks on the story it did not divert back to the blog, it just opens a black page.

    That is the redirect through you Facebook Application because your application is NOT ON FACEBOOK, but your website itself.

    what does this mean? Im note sure i understand? I set up the facebook application in order to have the fanpage?

    The application that you have on Facebook is redirecting to your website because you don't have a standalone app. stored on Facebook itself.

    "App on Facebook Use my app inside Facebook.com." I'm pretty sure that you don't have an inside Facebook app. of your website.

    Maybe there are some plugins that interfere with Facebook..try deactivating all plugins and then activate one by one to see if Facebook recommendations appear without problems.

    Please post the link/links that are opening that blank page. (before clicking them and after that).
