2585776 - Problems with Preview Link on Social Network such as LinkedIn/Facebook/Google Plus


Recruiters usually post jobs on Social Network such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Google Plus and etc. The normal procedure is use a bitly link (short URL) that is resolved to the page where jobs from a specific location are offered. In this process, the recruiter normally paste the link on the publication and a preview link or preview content is presented as shown in the below figure. For LinkedIn, in some cases, the location is shown in the preview link. In other hand the Facebook and Google Plus don't show the location.


The link resolution is perfomed by the social network used to post the jobs. In this example, LinkedIn is responsable to analyze the link and create the preview. In case of any specific element of preview (e.g. location) isn't shown correctly, the social network should be contacted.
