    Facebook Share Link Question
    I am working on allowing users to click a link on my site that would add an entry to their "My Links" page on Facebook.

    I am using this url to accomplish that...
    Code:
    http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=<url to share>&t=<title of content>
    But when the entry shows up on Facebook, the t or title is not included. The entry on the page ends up just as the shared url.

    I have url encoded both the url and the title like this...
    Code:
    $url = "http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=" . urlencode($mypage) . "&t=" . urlencode($mytitle);
    Anyone else using the sharer.php link?

    I just look at what ShareThis.com uses, and they just use http://www.facebook.com/share.php?u=$myurl.

    I really want to include the t or title parm but it appears to be picky.

    Maybe use addthis. http://www.addthis.com/bookmark.php?pub=stuff

    You are supposed to be able to have a title as well as a description.

    I found a solution. I created a dynamic page that creates a custom title and description meta tag as well as an image_src page. If you feed the sharer.php that page, it will use those variables on the "My Links" page. Good stuff.
