Is there a way I can make one of the images on a website more likely to be posted with a Facebook like or recommend?

From the like button documentation:

<meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/path/to/image.png" />

See that page for several other tags you can also set.

OK thanks, but I understand that in order for this to work I have to use all six required meta tags, is this correct? Thank you for your help. – Jane Oct 10 '11 at 14:58
Update 2015. To what I understand, Facebook has changed the link to the document. Now you can find the tags on Facebook Debug – Ooker May 3 '15 at 5:56
