Facebook Share not Showing Title and Image in Preview: Quick Fix

Social sharing is a vital part of online community building as it builds your traffic for a website and further marketing performance goals. Moreover, it establishes your brand by providing valuable resources, news, and ideas.

For sharing, you usually tend to include sharing buttons on your blog or website. Most of the site owners or bloggers believe that if you make all of your site’s or blog contents easily shareable, it will maximize views and traffic to your site.

Adding sharing buttons to the site or blog also represents your presence within the social media platforms. Though, it is not a bad idea to represent your social pages.

Maintaining your social pages, you need to go about exercising good social etiquette. For example, You need to share the contents regularly and as much as possible. And here, the website’s or blog’s sharing buttons do more for you.

While sharing through the buttons, you sometimes experience one issue: no preview is displayed, it just gives the URL of the website with no image or caption. In such instance, most of you surf for the answer for why does the preview not display it before it’s run through the debugger or is there any way to get it working?

To handle this issue, each network provides a metasystem. In this guide, I will tell you about Facebook.

You have the Open Graph API particularly for Facebook, through which the procedure cannot be repeated on each share. To avoid this, Facebook keeps the share data in a cache and periodically updates it.

Moreover, the themes we are using, don’t come with any OG data. We chose not to include them on the grounds that most SEO modules accompany such a component. For best outcomes, I prescribe utilizing the Social SEO by Yoast SEO module, the Facebook metadata can be empowered from SEO  >> Social >> Facebook.

Doing this will enable OG metadata for each post you share. You can even change from the post edit section.

If you seeing that Facebook share doesn’t display the post image.

Check the size of the featured image as the Facebook require feature image of size more than 200*200 pixels.

Use a Facebook debugger to pre-fetch metadata for the page. It will show you the information when your website content is shared on Facebook, Messenger and other places. In addition, it allows you to refresh this information for multiple URLs at the same time by pressing the “Fetch new scrape information” button.

And hence, you now do not need to do anything more now. I’m sure, this solution will resolve your issue.
