Other extremely helpful links

The Facebook Debugger is great for when you try to post a link to Facebook and the image is not pulling in correctly or the meta data is wrong or blank. Just add the link and run it through the debugger and then go back and try posting it again on Facebook. It usually works! https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

The Facebook Ads Text Overlay tool helps you determine how Facebook calculates the 20% text rule for advertising: https://www.facebook.com/ads/tools/text_overlay

    Holy Moly Andrea! That’s quite a reference list – of lists! Bookmarked and Shared.

  • http://www.bayareacircuits.com Peter Brissette

    Andrea, I use the facebook debugger a lot to make sure the OG data is showing up correctly. Here is the link. https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

    Also facebooks image sizes.

    Andrea – you rock the world. This is an amazing compilation of sources. Thank you so much.

  • http://www.AndreaVahl.com/ Andrea Vahl

    Great links – I meant to add those in and forgot!! Thanks Peter!

  • Alan Martin

    Great list Andrea, it would also be good to have a link to where page owners can claim old Facebook pages, if there is such a thing! I quite often speak to business owners who have legacy pages floating about that they are trying to get ownership of in order to shut them down.

    You used to be able to claim a page by clicking the cog button underneath the Cover Image on the page that you were trying to claim, but that has gone now and as far as I can see the only solution is to “Report the Page” as a “Duplicate”:-(

  • Andrew Colwell

    Great list Andrea. Thank you so much :)

  • http://monelico.com/ Monica Ramos

    Great list, Andrea! As I was scrolling I was thinking the debugger should definitely be on here and then I saw it as I got to the end. Thanks for putting this together!

  • http://www.AndreaVahl.com/ Andrea Vahl

    Thanks Phyllis!!

  • http://www.AndreaVahl.com/ Andrea Vahl

    You are welcome :)

  • http://www.AndreaVahl.com/ Andrea Vahl

    Yes, that is a very frustrating thing Alan! The best you can do is use the help forms and the Report the Page. You could also possibly try trademark infringement but those Pages are sometimes started by people who used to work at the company but then abandoned and no one knows who started them!

  • http://www.AndreaVahl.com/ Andrea Vahl

    You are welcome!

  • http://www.AndreaVahl.com/ Andrea Vahl

    Definitely one I use on a weekly basis but it didn’t fit into any of the categories above :) Thanks Monica!

  • http://thinkupnewmedia.com/about Mike Macey | ThinkUp New Media

    WOW! What a list. Thanks Andrea!

  • Alan Martin

    Exactly! As you say Andrea, these pages are often started by someone who worked for the company at some point, then left taking with them all access to the page. I don’t know why FB have removed the Claim Page option, so I think the Report Page is probably the best option. Thanks for the personal reply, much appreciated!

  • Selena Thurbon

    Awesome information!! Thanks Andrea!!

  • TheBacaJourney

    Wow. You are amazing. I have just sent it on to others and am bookmarking for a deeper read. Thank you!!

    Thank you Andrea! Super resource and all in one place.

    Facebook Debugger tool is new to me. I just tried it out but don’t understand how to actually change what appears. Where can I find out how to do that?

  • http://www.AndreaVahl.com/ Andrea Vahl

    So you run it through the debugger and then just try posting the link again onto Facebook and usually it corrects to the type of post you want to see. If it isn’t showing the correct information then you may have to work on changing your site and specify some of the opengraph tags you want to have it pull in. It gets pretty technical quick if your link isn’t working properly.

  • Mary M Hart

    Andrea, thank you Sooooooo much for sharing all of this with so many of us. I appreciate the work and time it took to research these, and look into each one.
    I’ve been researching online within a specific genre of Conscious Development for 14 years now, and know how much work it takes to get the important and relevant things out of the mass of information out there.

    Thanks and best to all your endeavors Andrea!
