    Why, when I share a post on facebook, sometimes it loads the image of post (correct) and sometimes an image that has nothing to do with the post? How can I fix this bug? Thank you, Annalisa

    @andrianiannalisa Facebook works in a different way than other AddThis buttons. The content displayed (Text, title and image) are fetched by Facebook from the url we provide. In your case, Facebook is properly parsing data for some pages and fails in some other.
    To control how your page is shared on Facebook you should use OpenGraph tags which are described in Facebook's documentation here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/
