    hello,
    I have a movie blog. In my articles i always put the movie poster first then screenshots.
    When i copy paste the shortlink on my facebook fan page I used to be able to select the movie poster as a thumbnail.
    Since recently, my images are classified backwards in wordpress (the last added appears first in the colmun and the first appearing in the article is at the bottom of the list). I don't know if it is linked. So basically now i get to only choose in facebook thumbnails my screenshots but not the posters anymore.
    Thanks for you help, here is my blog adress : http://leschroniquesducanapeintergalactique.wordpress.com/

    I have a related issue. When I post to Facebook, my featured image is not available as a thumbnail. Does Facebook only find images that are inserted into the post?

    Thanks,
    M

  3. Unfortunately, we have no control over the images that Facebook chooses. We really only send them the URL of the post, and they hunt through that for the excerpt and images to include.

    I've had the same issue with Reddit for the past couple of months as well. I can't seem to find anything on FB or Reddit that acknowledges or addresses the issue. Hopefully they go back soon!

  5. I've noticed that for the past view posts I have made. I have tried to make the thumbnail I want on facebook the feartured media in my post, I have inserted the pic in the post etc etc. I still only get the option of the wordpress W or my own personal rorschach icon.

    It's frustrating because I have to choose no thumbnail and it loses some pop. I hope it gets remedied quickly whoever is at fault.

  6. Why does the image are presents when I post myself the link on my facebook page and not with your apply ?
    Don't you have any way to report it to facebook ?

  7. If you would like to report your Facebook issue to Facebook Help Center then here's the link http://www.facebook.com/help/

  8. I have tried to delete the picture that pops up with my link but it has not changed. I cant find the picture in my WordPress media library and I deleted it from facebook. Is there another place my media is being stored in WordPress?

  9. You have separate trash folders for posts, pages, comments, and uploads. http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#deleting-permanently
