    Just wondering if any one here has experienced this FB Bug.

    When I try to share a link from my website which is in French, it does not fetches the Thumbnails or Title tags. The link is displayed on my Fanpage like a plain URL.

    Any ideas how this can be fixed?

    Just in case it isn't clear, I want the Thumbnails and Title tags to show alongside the URL when it is shared on Facebook.

    Try and lint your page, to see what error FB gives?

    I did tried the Debugger tool, and got the error description as Open Graph codes missing (Title, Image & Type etc.). I then added those tags to my page but still got the same errors on checking with debugger tool.

    Surprisingly, another inner page URL from the same website with no Open graph codes is being displayed properly on facebook, with Thumbnail & French Title tags being fetched properly.

    Hello,

    add these meta codes to your website.

    Code:
    <meta property="og:image" content=""/>
    <meta property="og:description" content="" />
    <meta property="og:title" content="" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="article"/>
    
    this should help you, mate. :)

    Good luck,

    Dhoviuz.
