    Hello Byyear, welcome to the club ;) , I am also wondering if this could also be a problem on Google’s side as well.

    Either way I am curious, this is an interesting mystery that WordPress is trying to solve, and so we will wait until WordPress and/or Google solves it. ;)

    I completely agree.. we’ll wait and see what they find..

    an fyi for the developers – I logged in this morning to see if i could magically publicize without making any changes and it worked.. so perhaps the issue has something to do with the scheduling – so far I have always tried to publish immediately but maybe the code has a glitch and does a date/time comparison when it should not .. i’ll run some tests tonite if the problem occurs again..

    here are the characteristics of my problem so far:
    1. i could not get publicize ‘immediately’ to work on Wednesday eve no matter what I did
    2. i checked Thurdsay morning and i was magically able to publicize without making any changes to my settings
    3. i could not publicize anything not matter what I did on Thurdsay eve
    4. I again checked on Friday morning and I was able to magically publicize

    *this is starting to appear to be a ‘time of the day issue’ .. i will play with the scheduled date/time next time i see this problem and i will see if that contributes to the publish ‘immediately’ feature

    Not working for me either. I have connected my facebook page, my google+ page, my Linked In and my twitter and have done two posts and nothing yet has been published to any of them.

    We are still digging into this. It looks like we’re hitting limits with Google+ and we’re still trying to sort out where this limit is being triggered and how to prevent it in the future. For right now my best suggestion is to manually post your updates on Google+ and hang in there as we continue to work through this issue.

    Okay, I’m also having this problem but only with Google+. Facebook and LinkedIn appear to be working fine. I posted a question on this topic to the forum and was told to subscribe here. Thank you @jackiedana :) I’ve spent hours on this trying to figure it out on my end.

    Hello, I too am having issues with Google+ Publicize, the featured images are not posting at all, just an empty box which looks bad, and the posts sometimes don’t post at all. The website is http://fggam.org and the google+ page is https://plus.google.com/+FggamOrg/posts

    I’m having the same issue but with Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. I was able to publish immediately before. The most I changed was my theme to one called TwentyFourteen, but I wouldn’t think that would do it.

    I have to go to my blog and share in manually that way. Publicize (via Jetpack) will not immediately publish for me.

    @shazam27, you’re using Jetpack so your issues are a bit different. It looks like Facebook is reporting a 500 error when trying to pull the data from your site. You may wish to check your server logs for the source of the error, or check with your hosting provider. It could also be an issue on Facebook’s end. Due to the nature of this error, it isn’t your Jetpack connection that’s misbehaving, so it’s not something we can resolve for you.

    As general troubleshooting tips, you could try uninstalling and deleting Jetpack, and then reinstall/reconnect it, and make sure you are running the most current versions both for Jetpack and WordPress as well. I don’t think this would be the source of the issue, but it’s easy enough to do that it’s worth a shot. You might also temporarily disable other plugins to see if that resolves things, which would then point to a plugin conflict.

    @jackiedana, thanks for the info. I’m hosting the site myself, and it was responsive and functional at the time. However, it is acting up quite a lot since I patched the openssl vulnerability yesterday. So I have another issue to deal with, which is just adding to this.

    I did notice that one of my posts eventually showed up on Facebook. So maybe it is an issue on my end.

    I’ll try uninstall jetpack and reconnecting and see what that does.

    The issue with Google+ posts should be resolved now for those using Publicize on a WordPress.com blog. You may need to reconnect your blog to Google+ via your sharing setting.

    Please let me know if you now have an active connection to Google+ (it will show up in your post editor just above your publish button if it’s active) and you’re still running into issues with your posts not showing up on Google+.

    My blogs have stopped getting published at all. I use Chrome browser and now I can’t even get into wordpress the browser says I have lost a secure connection and I have not changed that. Any ideas? I have dumped my cookies and browser history. It is frustrating because it worked for the first 12 or 15 posts I did and then whamo. Before I was locked out I could get to the new post from the top of the page on right and then it asked me if it was to be text, video ect. I chose text. When I would type in heading or content in big box the save draft button would automatically come on and I would get the spinning wheel but it would never stop. Then I emptied my cookies and could not get back in. All my other sites work fine but yours.

    @sprtnut77 it sounds like your issue is unrelated to the one being discussed in this thread. Please start a new thread and add the tag ‘modlook’ so we can take a look at it for you.

    Please also include the WordPress.com site you cannot access.

    Hello Jackiedana,

    My post from today properly publicized to Google+, so that is good, but I will try to remember to keep checking it each day after each post for the next few days to make sure that it is still working.

    Thank you for the update,

    @sweeneyb, I don’t see any errors with your Publicize connections. Were you posting from the main WordPress.com page (https://i.cloudup.com/n-oC80LLg1.png ) or from your Dashboard post editor window?

    I can see you disconnected and reconnected a month ago. Have you not been able to successfully publish any posts to your social media since that time?

    If you would let me know the next time you publish a post, and could hold off on manually posting to your other connections to give me time to check them out, that would be very helpful.

    I have Facebook and Twitter connected, as well as Google+, and Publicize is not publishing my post for me. I tried several times but no luck. The post that is not working is

    I was having a similar problem. I wasn’t able to connect to facebook or twitter. I removed jetpack, added it back in, then removed my connection to wordpress.com. I have a self hosted site. Once I remade the connection to worpress.com, everything is working as it should.
