Ok, I see everyone's work on Facebook, including a preview.

 

How do I share a skin to Facebook like that?

This what you mean, Jim?

If you click on the "f" should open your fb sign in.

The other way would be to copy the url and and add it to a reply/post.

If you take a screen shot or copy the preview pic, then you just upload as a "picture or video".

Hope this helps.

OK, it must work best sharing someone else's work?

 

I hit that button, it makes a link and a description. No way that I see to add a pic.

Crap! Facebook strikes again!

Can't get a preview except by saving the preview, and uploading that pic along with a link to the skin.

Good catch.

 

You should be able to see my post of Ventura now on fb using the above method.

Facebook will only display a small thumbnail when you share a link.  As said, you have to upload the preview image and just include a link for the best looking result.

Spencer, when I click the FB button, it shares text. No thumbnail.

I should have said usually.  Facebook does not do a good job at pulling content from links, that's why I typically upload the photos as mentioned above.
