HOW TO: Force Facebook to Grab the Best Image from Your Page (WordPress)

Facebook thumbnailWhen you “share” a page on Facebook, you will – in most cases – have the range of various image thumbnails to choose from. More often than not, these thumbnails will be random, to say at least: banners from the sidebar, commenter’s Gravatar photos, etc. Obviously, you can always choose the best image, but will your readers do the same?
What is more, when a reader “likes” your article (which most users are more likely to do as that’s just so much easier), there will be no option to choose the thumbnail and your post will be placed on that user’s Facebook stream with an absolutely random and (in most cases) irrelevant image.
How much more interest could you great article result in if it *always* had a great and relevant thumbnail to go with the update?
Unlike Google Plus (which is much smarter at marking up the page and grabbing the most relevant information from the page), Facebook should be clearly “pointed” to what should make it to the update. Like it or not, it benefits you (in the first place) if you spend an effort to explain your page in a language Facebook understands.
For the lucky WordPress bloggers, there are a few plugins that will help you point Facebook to the best image to go in your Facebook “likers’” updates:

First Things First: Clear Facebook Cache!

If you try experimenting with different images as a thumbnail, you will instantly face a problem: Facebook page caching. Facebook would cache your page as soon as you (or anyone else) like it and will show you the same thumbnail each time (no matter which image you have in the meta tag).
Use this tool that clears Facebook cache of the page and creates a new one.
You can also use that tool to preview how Facebook “sees” your page before you even try to “like” it:
Facebook debag tool

1. Custom Image SRC: the Simplest Option

Custom Image SRC is a handy plugin that lets you specify the image you want to be in the page preview on Facebook when anyone “likes” your post. The plugin works on the “Edit post” level:
Custom Image_Src
Basically, the plugin adds the following code in the individual page section:
With this code in the header, the random preview image is overridden by the image that you specify.
Let’s see if it works!
Here’s what the page we are “liking” on Facebook looks like:
test page
Before activating the plugin:
(Absolutely random image from the sidebar is grabbed as the page thumbnail after someone likes your page)
Thumbnail of the "liked" post
(The image *you* want is grabbed as the page preview):
Facebook page preview with the proper thumbnail

2. Facebook: Open Graph Plugin

There’s another way to control your page Facebook “snippets”: WP Facebook Open Graph protocol which adds Facebook Meta information to your blog pages (the plugin requires your a Facebook User ID or App ID for it to work).
When it comes to generating the image preview, the plugin will:
  • Try to use the page “featured” image;
  • If you don’t have a “featured” image, it will pull the first image in the post/page content;
  • If there are no images in the post, it will default to using the image you put into the plugin settings in the admin panel.
Besides, controlling the post thumbnails on Facebook, the plugin will also handle the proper title / description within the snippet on Facebook user’s wall:
Here’s the info the plugin has added to my post:
Generate Facebook page thumbnail

3. Also:

  • It’s rather a speculation (but one I myself have seen evidence of), but Facebook seems to prefer .JPG images
  • In order for the plugins above to work properly, make sure your image is self-hosted
  • The image must be at least 50px by 50px and have a maximum aspect ratio of 3:1. Facebook will make it square if you don’t.

A.M. Vitals: Coca-Cola Found Fungicide in OJ From Brazil

Orange Juice Worries: Coca-Cola said it found an unapproved fungicide in some of it and its competitors’ orange juice imported from Brazil, though it wouldn’t identify the brands, the WSJ reports. Coke makes Simply Orange and Minute Maid.  The FDA is testing OJ from supermarket shelves for the fungicide, but the EPA said consumption of juice that includes fungicide at the levels that have been reported doesn’t raise health concerns.
Polio Milestone: India has gone a full year without any reported cases of polio, the Associated Press reports. Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria would be the only countries where polio is considered endemic if no cases from the last year in India turn up, the AP says. The country’s health minister says vaccination must continue to keep the virus at bay.
Warning Letter: The FDA warned Johnson & Johnson that the company’s failure to report problems with insulin pumps made by its Animas Corp. unit could mean fines and an injunction, Dow Jones Newswires reports. J&J said it is “dedicated” to resolving the FDA’s concerns; the company says some patients have experienced deterioration of the keypads on the pumps.
Healthier Beneficiaries: Research published in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that Medicare Advantage plans that offer gym memberships tend to attract healthier beneficiaries, Kaiser Health News’ Capsules blog reports. The study can’t tell whether health plans intended that effect or simply wanted to boost market share, Capsules says. The plans aren’t allowed to select seniors based on health status.
