I'm trying to share posts from my WordPress blog on Facebook. I want them to show in the new format with large thumbnails.
Here's is what I'm using:
<meta property='og:site_name' content='<?php wp_title(''); ?>'/> <meta property='og:type' content='turmtheater:vorstellung' /> <meta property='og:title' content='mytitle' /> <meta property='og:url' content='<?php the_permalink(); ?>' /> <meta property='og:image' content='<?php echo get_img_url(); ?>' />
The image-URL is definitely correct and points to a large image (1400 * 650 or something like that). But Facebook still re-sizes the image to the old 116*116 format.
Shouldn't it work if
og:image is given, or is there anything else needed?
Edit: If I repost the link from my facebook wall, the repostet link shows the large image. So Facebook definitely uses the right one. It just displays as a small post.
