Thumbnails on facebook not showing (8 posts)

    I am still on WP2.7 and my thumbnails from my blog posts no longer show on Facebook when I share a link to the blog post address. Since my WP blog is used for my business, it is pretty critical that my images are displayed as thumbnails on Facebook.
    This is a fairly new problem... maybe just in the last few weeks.

    Would someone please offer some help for me so that my images again show as Facebook thumbnails like they used to?

    Any help is much appreciated!!

    I am just guessing the problem, if you are hosting the image else where other than your server then it might be having problem with pulling the image for thumbnail from there.

    No, the images are always on my server.
    It used to work, but just stopped a few weeks ago.

    tbookman,

    It is possible that Facebook is the issue here and not your site.

    I have tested that and it includes thumbnail photos from other websites I link to. It doesn't do it from my wordpress blog.

    Any help is definitely appreciated.

    tbookman,

    Can you post a link to your Facebook page so we can look at that as well?

    Actually, the exact same thing is happening to me. I just went live with a new PhotoBlog Template (ProPhoto 3) and when I go to Facebook to link to a new post that contains an image, the thumbnail preview does appear but once I click 'Submit', the thumbnail disappears.

    My Blog URL is http://brianmatiash.com/blog

    You can try posted a link to this URL for a test: http://brianmatiash.com/blog/2010/01/31/1s24h-january-31st-2010/

    The odd thing is that if I link to another PhotoBlog that also uses the ProPhoto template, the thumbnail appears just fine when I submit it.

    I am pretty sure that I have tried everything but any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Brian
