When posting link to my wordpress geekgirlscarrots.pl on Facebook, thumbnail images don't display at all.

I've put at header the following code:

<meta name="title" content="Geek Girls Carrots" />
<meta name="description" content="Visit our site! Come to our meetings!" />
<link rel="image_src" type="image/jpeg" href="http://geekgirlscarrots.pl/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/1GGC_for_web_logo.jpg"/>

but it doesn't work. If anyone could help me?

I think you're looking for Facebook Open Graph Meta Tags specifically this one

<meta property="og:image" content="http://geekgirlscarrots.pl/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/1GGC_for_web_logo.jpg"/>

The linked image image needs to be 50 x 50 px.

It should be accompanied with these other og: tags

<meta property="og:title" content="Facebook Open Graph META Tags"/>
<meta property="og:url" content="http://my.url.html"/>
<meta property="og:site_name" content="Webmaster Blog"/>
<meta property="og:type" content="blog"/>

Make sure you set type correctly there is a useful summary on effective use here.

These shouldn't replace your normal meta tags, but exist in addition to them.
