    Im sharing a post on facebook from wordpress but it isn’t pulling images from THAT post, instead it is only giving the options of images I have on my widget sidebar.

    How do I select the current image to show up on my facebook profile along with the link?
    This is happening to both of my blogs
    Please help. Thanks!

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

    I searched for you and found many threads. http://tinyurl.com/5vcz6sw

    Manually posting to FB via your Sharing buttons works and allows you to choose the image. If you have FB sharing enabled, just click the FB button on your post and you get a pop-up page of FB where you can select the thumbnail. There’s a toggle you can use to go forwards or back to choose the image.

    It is entirely possible Facebook changed something again (they’re always doing that) and I know for a fact that WP.com has changed in the past week as staff tinker.

    thanks timethief, but again the only option i have for images are the ones on my sidebar, not the ones from the post, or any other post for that matter.
    and this is something new, everything was working fine 2 days

    As raincoaster has said Facebook is always changing things. :(

    I’m happy to hear you have found that solution. It’s the one raincoaster recommends. Best wishes. :)
