Facebook share for draft not working?

    I have this problem: when publicizing a draft post it does not appear on my Facebook time line. Is this a known bug? Is there another reason why this happens?
    Creating a post and publicizing it immediately works fine. Yesterday I had a fit of creativity and wrote a few entries for my blog and saved those as a draft, to publicize them on a later time. I can work around by copying the draft, delete it and then create it anew, but that takes extra work.

    Drafts aren’t published posts. Only published posts are publicized. Only published posts can be “shared”. http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/



    I guess I did not make myself clear.
    I had a post created yesterday and saved it as draft. Today I opened this draft with EDIT and clicked PUBLICIZE. So now it is a published post, it shows in my blog, but no link is shared with my facebook account.



    Thanks for the clarity.

    1. Try flushing your FB cache but disconnect from FB first http://umairj.com/146/how-to-clear-facebook-shares-cache/
    2. Try the full reconnect procedure again detailed at http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook including step 3 (removing the FB app), which is probably the most important step.
    3. See also publicize troubleshooting http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#troubleshooting

    Note: RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti can be used for posting to Facebook walls if you prefer. RSS Graffiti periodically checks the RSS/Atom feeds that you specify and posts any new entries it finds to the Facebook Walls that you specify. You can get any feed written on any wall (Facebook Profiles, Fan Pages, Groups, Events and Application Profile Pages). In fact, multiple feeds to multiple walls. You choose the combination.
