Facebook sharing thumbnail

    I find that when I post to facebook using publicize there is no thumbnail in my post and when i post using the sharing feature the wordpress logo is shown big and bold in the post.

    I would like to know if one or both can be changed so that my fb post has graphics that reflect my blog post. I would especially like to know how to change the fb sharing thumbnail.

    Thank you

    The blog I need help with is gospelchunes.com.



    We have no control over which images Facebook chooses to display and we have no control over how long it takes for the image caches at Facebook to be flushed. They make changes frequently and what follows may ot may not be where they are at today:
    Only the first five images uploaded to a post (direct inclusion/gallery/slideshow) will be sent to Facebook. The images size has to be at least 200 x 200 pixels.
    To select which image will be used for things like Facebook Publicize, you can use a theme that supports featured images. If a featured image isn’t set or your theme doesn’t use featured images, then the code tries to pick the first image in the post or page. If no image is found, then the blavatar is used.


    thumbnails not working for me either…before facebook would catch several inages from my post and allowed me to choose one of my liking

    since a couple of weeks now only catches the header image wich in my case is always the same in every blog entry…not a happy camper..
