No image displayed on Facebook when I view Facebook like

I have added some social media share buttons on this page:
http://www.linosolutions.com/nyheter_detaljer.php?Id=3

When check the functionality on a face book page I notice that the image is missing (see attached image)

I have added a link rel="image_src" tag in the head of my page to tell facebook what image to associate to the page:
<link rel="image_src" href="http://www.linosolutions.com/bilder/<?php echo $row_rsNyheter['Hovedbilde']; ?>" />

Can you see what's wrong?

I'm also attaching my page.

If you need to troubleshoot directly, see private message.

Thanks in advice.

Regards
Rune

the image used by facebook is taken from the open graph image tag on your page

instead of using a link with rel=img_src, use a og:image meta tag:

<meta property="og:image" content="http://www.linosolutions.com/bilder/<?php echo $row_rsNyheter['Hovedbilde']; ?>"/>

I have updated my page and replaced
<link rel="image_src" href="http://www.linosolutions.com/bilder/<?php echo $row_rsNyheter['Hovedbilde']; ?>" />
with
<meta property="og:image" content="http://www.linosolutions.com/bilder/<?php echo $row_rsNyheter['Hovedbilde']; ?>"/>

I'm afraid there is no difference. Unfortunately the image still not appears. I have tested with another Facebook account this time.

I'm attaching a new version of my page.

Rune

Yes, today it works for me too. But it did not yesterday. Strange since I cleared the browser cache between each attempt. I also tested in different browsers on different facebook accounts.

Thanks again for looking into this.

Rune
