Facebook won't show images for shared post

    Hi,
    I have read many posts how to fix this and it isn’t working. I have reconnected Facebook but my images with posts have stopped working.
    They first stopped on October 12th, then a post on the 15th showed an image and I thought all was good. But now still no images showing.
    It has always worked, I’m thinking either something changed at Facebook or WordPress to cause this.
    It defeats the purpose of sharing with no image.
    One a side note I never seem to see my blog posts on the fan page appear in my personal feed, they used to do that as well.
    Thanks

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

    See the Staff response here please :

    Unfortunately, we have no control over the images that Facebook chooses. We really only send them the URL of the post, and they hunt through that for the excerpt and images to include. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/avalaible-facebook-thumbnail-issue?replies=3#post-1000734

    I’ve seen that post before about no control over the images. The thing is it was working flawlessly and suddenly stopped. So it has to be something with WordPress.
    One post mentioned about using a debugger at facebook to see what it sees. The debugger sees the images, just Facebook doesn’t post them.
    I suppose I should be asking at facebook as well but they’ll probably just point the blame back at wordpress.

    I located something else for you.

    We’ve also updated our image upload process when you Publicize to Facebook. Your images are now uploaded at a higher quality and are uploaded into an organized album in your Facebook account when you use Publicize. http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/improved-publicize/

    Thanks for the help. Interesting enough the second post I added today had the image in Facebook showing. So apparently it is being finicky, grrrr.

    Of course I wish it could publish to Google+ as well, but that’s ok.
