Why can't I get a thumbnail with my blog when I share it on FB?

  1. I have the theme Sunspot and it says that it supports a featured image, which should show up when I post the blog onto FB. But I cannot get that to happen. Can anyone help me? Or recommend another theme?

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

  2. You are not alone. I'm sorry but we cannot help with this. 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.
