Sharing a URL

Required: URL 

Optional: Description

Note: Facebook automatically generates the title, description, and image URL for your link posts based off of meta properties embedded within your website's code. In order to manually specify which of these attributes Facebook will use for a link to your site, you must insert custom meta tags in the HTML code of your site. If these attributes are not set, Facebook will guess which image, title, etc. to use, which may lead to undesirable results.

Example:

<meta property="og:url"                content="http://www.yourlink.com/example" />
<meta property="og:type"               content="article" />
<meta property="og:title"              content="Title Here" />
<meta property="og:description"        content="Description Here" />
<meta property="og:image"              content="http://preview.image.com/images/example.jpg" />
