When I try to share my self-hosted website (www.veffa.org/vnbookdrive) on Facebook, the logo isn't shown as I expect:

When search for the solution, I come up with this tutorial in YouTube. So I go to the Facebook Object Debugger and enter my site. It turns out that it does get an image, the only thing is that image is white, and I don't know where it is on my site:

So do you have any idea where is this image? And how should I fix it?

  • I have same problem. It worked a week ago. OG image is correct, image url is correct, if i inspect element on facebook on my post on image, the url of image is correct. and it still show white image. if i go to Open Graph Object Debugger i get "Error parsing input URL, no data was cached, or no data was scraped." on any url of the website.... anyone any ideas? – Erik Kubica Jul 6 '16 at 13:10
  • @ErikKubica that sounds like a separate issue since you have an error message. You could ask a question about that error message. – Stephen Ostermiller Jul 6 '16 at 13:16

This is happening because you are using Jetpack Open Graph Tags which is inserting the following code: <meta property="og:image" content="https://s0.wp.com/i/blank.jpg" />. It may be using a blank.jpg file because it can't find any images on the page. The only images you are using are contained within a JavaScript Super Sized...

Summary... either embed a image to the page not using JavaScript or manually add a og:image with a image that isn't blank.

  • My image I want to use is the logo, which doesn't seem to be contained in any JS – Ooker May 3 '15 at 12:09
  • Right... Facebook uses og:image if you don't that in the <head> then its not going to display. I see that you have <img src="/vnbookdrive/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/3.44.png> on the page and you need to add <meta property="og:image" content="http://www.veffa.org/vnbookdrive/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/3.44.png" /> to your website. Either do this manually, fix Jetpack Open Graph or use another plugin... I have told you the problem, how you proceed to fix the problem is up to you. – Simon Hayter May 3 '15 at 13:09
