Facebook stopped pulling thumbnail from post

    I am using the theme Under the Influence. Last month things were working fine. Yesterday when I tried to share a blog post on Facebook I noticed that it was not "pulling" in the picture not matter how many times I tried. Ironically the images from older blog posts are still able to be "pulled" into FB.

    Is there any sort of meta data or something that would prevent a thumbnail from being "pulled" into a FB share?

    This is the post that I am not able to share properly on FB.

    The blog I need help with is floweringminds.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi there,
    We can't help you with this issue. Unfortunately, we have no control over the images that Facebook chooses to display or when they choose to flush their image caches. We really only send them the URL of the post, and they hunt through that for the excerpt and images to include.

    Thanks! I used the debug tool and it works now.

  4. That's good news. Best wishes with your blog.
