What the heck is up with Facebook images?

    Facebook is showing this image when I type my URL into a post:

    It's pulling that image from my theme directory (facebook.png) which is a 400x400 size image. However, for some odd reason it's resizing it into a landscape type image therefore cropping off the top and bottom of the image.

    On the other hand, when I type in http://xenforo.com into a Facebook post it looks like this:

    Where in the hell is Facebook getting this idea that my image should be a landscape view? Really confused about this and I can't seem to find an explanation anywhere.

    If you look at facebooks object debugger it shows that you've set it to this image:

    https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/og/object/

    Specifically this tag:

    Code:
    <meta property="og:image" content="http://wranglertjforum.com/styles/simplicity_lightblue/xenforo/facebook2.png" />

    Yes, you caught me in the act of playing with things. It looks like according to Facebooks documentation the Open Graph image should optimally be 1200x630 pixels.

    Let me try an image that size and see if it fixes it. Damn Facebook, stop fiddling with things all the time.
