LinkedIn compatibility

I have added the module to a page on my site and attempted sharing via linkedin. The thumbnail I chose does not come up.

Hi. LinkedIn is a problem child when it comes to OGP. I've run into this a lot with OGP tags generated by other programs, too. You can Google the topic, and find a lot of discussions about people having this issue with non-DNN platforms, as well.

I would make sure that image shows up in Facebook. If not, Facebook has a great diagnostic utility to help you troubleshoot it.

If the image shows up in Facebook, but not in LinkedIn, you've probably done your job, but LinkedIn is not honoring the OGP tags.


See Ya!

By the way, the LinkedIn problem is intermittent. You'll typically see the images not showing up for blog posts or news articles that you post. Then suddenly one day, the image for a newly created article appears on LinkedIn! You'll dance a jig thinking that the problem is solved. Then the next day, the image for the next new article doesn't appear.

See Ya!
