Social media preview image doesn't work. don't know why facebook scraper sees my image url "wrong"

first of all thank you very much for the netlify service! That’s great :slight_smile:

I was creating my website, deploying it on github & hosting it here on netlify. So far so good.

I tried to change the previewpicture for socialmedia, like facebook, instagram etc. and added these metatags:

I was checking on facebook debugger

but i only get this feedback:

Warnings That Should Be Fixed

  • Invalid URL

Provided og:image URL, /> <meta property= was not a valid URL.

  • Missing Properties

The following required properties are missing: og:url, og:type, fb:app_id

Do you have any idea how i could solve that?

Thank you very much in advance,

Sure, check out this article for all the details on debugging and affecting sharing services:

The most relevant piece of information in there is the caching details - changes you make will be cached by our service by up to 48 hours, so you should test on a different URL every time you make changes, lest you see the “old” information even though your new HTML is fixed.

cool great thank you!

Will give it a shot! :slight_smile:

Best of Luck,
