[W8.1][C#] Share text with url and image to Facebook using Share contract - wrong thumbnail RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using Share contract to share both text and image to Facebook. Text contains url to some other page starting with https. To build data package I'm using SetText for text and SetStorageItems for image, image is added from local storage within DataRequestDeferral block. After choosing Facebook App I see both text and attached file in post form. After Publish post appears on the wall but the preview is different on Home and Profile page. On Home post preview is generated from attached image but on Profile Facebook creates thumbnail from link within text, attached image is ignored.

    Is it possible to force Facebook to always generate post thumbnail from attached image and not from link in text?

    Regards

    Marcin

    Actually, Facebook App as Share Tagert app, it has completed the data retrieving and API calling to share shared data to its website. So If you have some issue on this part, you need to redirect to its official API document and try to get help in there.

    See Sharing content target app sample to understand what an target app should implement: https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Sharing-Content-Target-App-e2689782
