I used to post links to my listings on FaceBook to promote them. However, I just tried that today and no matter what listing I try to post, only the Airbnb homepage shows up on the FB post. It's as if FaceBook ignores everything after the ".com" Anyone know if FaceBook has changed something and is blocking the ability to post your listings?
Are you using he correct links ?
What happens if you click on them ?
Maybe Airbnb server does not support "deeplinks" anymore from facebook.
You can also use other personalized links, which can be found in the listings.
Thank you for asking. I've tried both the custom link you can create in your listings and the one Airbnb generates that simply ends in .com followed by my listing number. Both can be pasted into a browser and they go to my listing. Yet if I post it on my FB page it only goes to the Airbnb homepage. It's frustrating at the moment because it didn't used to do that and I could promote my listings on my person FB page.
i just tested it on my facebook: posting URL's to my rooms (or homepage) at Airbnb.com works well and when i click on them they show the right information at Airbnb website.
Be sure to prefix URL's with "https://" (not "http://")
That was a good thought, but I am using the correct prefix. I spoke to someone at Airbnb and they claim that it should work and they haven't made any changes. I've also tried the custom links you can create in Listings. I remain baffled since this used to work perfectly. Screenshot attached in case you see anything?
This is the facebook preview picture you show here, i get that one also !
It can be removed with "x". But if you click on it, you will see your listing.
Try your homepage: https://www.airbnb.com/users/5436991/listings
Upload a coverphoto to your homepage, it will appear in facebook preview.
That seems like a reasonable work around, although before it would just show the pictures from the listing when I pasted the link. I'll give that a try. Thank you.
OK, succes !
It is not an Airbnb issue, it is the way Facebook tries to generate a preview of a URL.
Something obviously changed, not to our advantage....
