Hiding an image for use on Facebook postings

This is simply done by embedding a 1 pixel by 1 pixel image into your post. This will not be visible to your blog readers (except the visually anal ones) but it will show up as a thumbnail option when posting to Facebook. Look at the post on Blinded by Bias and try sharing it to Facebook. You should see the thumbnail of your portrait as an option to use for the FB post.

To do this you must add the following code to the end of each post.  You add this in “HTML” view; not in “VIsual” view.

<img src=”” alt=” ” width=”1″ height=”1″ />

If you look closely at the end of your post text you’ll see a little dot in the middle of the line after the last period. That’s the image rendered 1×1. pixels.
