Public post appearing "Private" when shared

  1. Hello,

    When I attempt to share one of my posts (only one of them, the others work fine) onto Facebook (via copy/paste and the share button), it appears as though it is marked "private" despite having changed the privacy of my blog to "public" a few days ago.

    This has also occurred for friends that have tried to share the same post, using different browsers and different computers.

    This is the URL address of the post in question: http://gabrielmcortez.wordpress.com/2012/12/26/2-freewrite-books-a-million/

    The exact words of the error message are: "Protected blog > Login" atop "http://gabrielmcortez.wordpress.com is marked private by its owner. If you were invited to view this site, please log in below. Read more about privacy settings."

    Thank you!

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

  2. This is very common. Facebook still sees your blog as private, so you will have to disconnect Publicize, flush your Facebook cache, and re-connect publicize.

  3. Thank you, raincoaster. I will try that now and report back with results!

  4. Thank you! This worked perfectly.

  5. You're welcome, glad to hear it.
