    Hello

    I am sure this issue has been discussed, but I have a new slant and some questions.

    I make many posts to multiple facebook and twitter accounts including links. Twitter is great.

    With facebook, when you click a link it invariably goes to a page that says "Sorry, there was a problem with this link...Remember, only follow links from sources you trust." and gives you the opportunity to click again to follow the link.

    This happens with firefox and IE, but NOT WITH CHROME. Chrome works great.

    Is it possible that chrome is checking with a google malware database and granting "link health" permission? Or is there possibly another way to get my sites' links authenticated/validated/approved by a third party that facebook would accept? Is there some og: meta tag that might work? Is there another link shortener besides bit.ly that facebook "likes" better?

    Cheers
    Mike

    Thanks I am looking into it, checking out the api. I actually make thousands of automated postings to hundreds of pages so making sure the api works every time and I am not exceeding limits would be the key question.
