How to post a link with a picture to Facebook using the Graph API?

I have tried two different methods.

The first is to specify the link in the /PROFILE_ID/feed link argument (as described under "publishing" here). The problem is that if I specify anything other than my application URL i get an error saying the URL is invalid.

The second is to use the /PROFILE_ID/links method and specifying a picture URL. The problem is that when it posts it only shows the message and the URL. I've specified values for picture, name and message but none of them show.

How can I Post a link, with a name, message and picture?

Your first approach is the correct one. Is your url starting with http://? What SDK are you using?

As described on this page, the example suggest it should work. http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/api/post

curl -F 'access_token=...' \
 -F 'message=Check out this funny article' \
 -F 'link=http://www.example.com/article.html' \
 -F 'picture=http://www.example.com/article-thumbnail.jpg' \
 -F 'name=Article Title' \
 -F 'caption=Caption for the link' \
 -F 'description=Longer description of the link' \
 -F 'actions={"name": "View on Zombo", "link": "http://www.zombo.com"}' \
 -F 'privacy={"value": "ALL_FRIENDS"}' \
 -F 'targeting= {"countries":"US","regions":"6,53","locales":"6"}' \

DotNet.Highcharts and proper JSON

I have an inconsistent issue with the JSON sent to highcharts. Highcharts does not always reject the JSON, but when it does, updating the JSON by hand to a proper format consistently fixes it:
