Enable YouTube thumbnails in Facebook
Facebook loves changes and lately we have experienced some issues when we have wanted to embed videos into our own, or our clients’ Facebook pages. We paste the link but it does not convert itself to a link + thumbnail of the video.
We have found a solution. For most of the time, at least. There is still a glitch in the matrix and – on the odd occassion – this won’t work, but hopefully it can help you with your community management efforts.
Take the URL of your YouTube video i.e http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEIxGbDdJCU
Now add ‘&sns=fb’ to the end of the link
So it looks like this – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEIxGbDdJCU&sns=fb
