Not sure if Facebook has changed how we add hyperlinks but the code:
<a>"http://www.site.com">keyword</a> does not work. Any ideas how to set hyperlinks? Thanks

    you got the code wrong.

    It's: <a href="insertsitehere">keyword</a>

      Actually this is the code I AM using

      <a href="http://www.site.com">keywords</a>

      However, I copied the first post from Facebook and they apparently strip the href out of the hyperlink.

    <a href="site.com">keywords</a>- it is working for me, but if you want to add simple post on your wall you have to use the Attach Link feature

      I think you are confusing anchor link text in info profile with SEND attachments. Attach Link feature is for sending attachments emails/messages, from what I just read in Facebook help.

    lol, what a great replies you got there guys!

    are you really testing the code before you reply to OP's issue?
    "<a href="FULL SITE URL">KEYWORD</a> IS ISN'T WORKING!

    @OP
    You can try just www.site.com as posted above maybe the best reply out of your thread. but putting anchor text I think its not possible.

      See, now maybe you will be less inclined to think of me as some mean
      person...

      If you want to post a good link in FB, have a small picture on the page that
      FB can choose as the icon, and, make your title and description fit.

      In other words, it's not a bad idea to create an alternative page for FB to
      post a link to. Call it a FB friendly page.

      Once you post a link, FB will cache it. Next time, even if you change the
      page title, etc., the link may have the old info. Somewhere you can
      force a refresh, but I'm too lazy to find it.
