Facebook share only shows URL

  1. I want to share posts from my blog on Facebook. My posts are made on the opening page and the share buttons open up the Facebook share window. The only thing that is shared is what looks like the following

    http://parableofthelost.com/?p=102
    http://parableofthelost.com/?p=102

    I found a post that seemed to be similar to my problem and it was recommended to look at Facebook debugger

    I can go to other pages on my site and the share feature works by showing a small except from the content along with the Icon. How can I get my article posts to do the same thing?

    The blog I need help with is parableofthelost.com.

  2. The blog you specified at parableofthelost.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

  3. Your blog is a "powered by WordPress" or self hosted WordPress.ORG site. We cannot help you here at WordPress.com with that site as it’s not being hosted by WordPress.com and we run on different software. This is the correct forum for your software http://wordpress.ORG/support/ If you have not registered a WordPress.org username account yet you can do so on the top right hand corner of the page I just linked to so you can post to those support forums.
