    @thekowalkerjourney. Thanks for this posting. Now, just having a bit of an issue with it and wondering how to fix it.

    Using your suggestions to create a new service, when I click on the new Facebook Share service, a FB popup comes up. However, rather than it coming up with the thumbnail and link. It is instead coming up with a non-descriptive link and without the thumbnail. The links looks like this: http://wp.me/p1jHlp-4X .

    However, I tried the FB Share service on your blog (http://jcrylequotes.com/), and when I go to Share on Facebook, the pop-up appears correctly with the thumbnail and link.

    My question – is there additional steps needed to fix this issue? Looking forward to your response.

    Thanks!

    J.

    oh and what i notice is that most of the posts on the home page will share but for example if i try share a gallery it then gives me that error message mentioned above. So i don’t know… for the share button, should one wait for the share button to “crawl” through the whole blog before it works for every post, page or index. My settings in the share area is set to posts, pages and index.

    Just confusing why it works for some posts or articles and not for others.

    Staff have been looking into this error since last night. Sometimes it resolves, sometimes not.

    This is a great tip – thanks so much.

    One issue for me: the thumbnails generated when hitting the Facebook “share” button are wrong. Oddly, it picks out every image on the page *apart* from the image used in the blog post. (My blog posts always have a “featured image”).

    Anyone have any tips on getting Facebook to pick out the featured image?

    Thanks. If it is that easy, what about del.ici.ous, LinkedIn, and all the others? What is the URL for these services? Does anyone know? This website seems to know, but I am not sure which part the URL is that I have to put in:

    @barrygcooper: There is an ongoing issue about it at the moment…

    @kantoos: Those instructions don’t work on WordPress.COM. However, the following article gives the information needed under Site URL and some images:

    What do you mean by:

    Please provide specific URLs for the posts/pages you are referring to.

    Thank you SO MUCH for the advice!

    I was wondering whether we can also add the *Like* button on the sidebar or header?!
    so instead of people liking the posts, they can also like the blog itself?!

    Your help is much appreciated!
