    No matter what I do, I can’t get the featured picture or a title of the post to show up when I share on facebook or google plus. I have the social media buttons and connected my social media.

    This was never an issue with my former blog, but suddenly I can’t seem to make it work on my new blog.

    Please help and thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is www.bookwormkitchen.com.

    Hi @mrskcanino,

    It looks like the site you linked with your comment (www.bookwormkitchen.com) is not hosted with WordPress.com.

    Registrar: FastDomain Inc.
    Name Server: NS1.HOSTMONSTER.COM
    Name Server: NS2.HOSTMONSTER.COM

    Is that the site you are working on? I also seen under your member profile you have: https://dinoheromommy.wordpress.com/. Is that the one you having trouble with sharing?

    To know the difference between .com and .org you might review this support doc: https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    You can ask questions to the .org support forums here: https://wordpress.org/support/

    Could you post here a link you are trying to share? I know some users were having thumbnail images with Facebook as seen in this thread (beware, its a long one!). Which is coming from an error or issue on Facebook’s end.

    Please reply with more information if you can and we’ll try to get your sorted.

    Thanks!

    thanks for the info!!!! Looking at the thread now. my current site is bookwormkitchen.com my old site is dinoheromommy.com

    I am trying to share http://www.bookwormkitchen.com/2017/07/05/typical-morning/ on facebook and it’s just not working.

    I am in the process of transferring everything over and the facebook and google+ seems to be the only issue.

    Hi mrskcanino,

    bookwormkitchen.com appears to be a self-hosted WordPress.org website, which is different from a WordPress.com site.

    You can learn more about WordPress.com vs WordPress.org here: https://wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    These forums are for WordPress.com sites only. You can find WordPress.org support documentation and forums here: https://wordpress.org/support/

    You’re welcome!

    I also just went to Facebook’s debugger: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ and dropped in the http://www.bookwormkitchen.com/2017/07/05/typical-morning/ URL you gave me and I get two errors.

    One about image size – it say’s your image is too large (should be 8Mb or less), and the other error (upon further Googling, seems to only limit your access to insights on the post. So maybe try reducing your image size and sharing again?

    Hope that helps!
