    Hello. I am liking this plugin very much, and I have tried MANY social media plugins.

    I have one question - I changed one of the photos on my front page, but the photo is still showing up in the 3 choice photo selection when I click to share on Facebook. I wanted to know if I am able to remove the old photo from the plugin and replace it with the new photo I have now posted on the front page. The old photo seems to still be stuck in the plugin.

    Unfortunately facebook uses its own logic to pick images. The only way to control it is to use their special APIs, see here:

    My Facebook shares show a weird random image from the webpage (cut-off and distorted too) that makes the sharing feature unacceptable. I highly recommend incorporating a way to choose the image for the Facebook share (Google+ picks the featured image). Otherwise, it looks like I will have to find another solution, which is a shame since otherwise I love the plug-in.

    Facebook selects the image by parsing your page and searching for its special tags. All you need to do is install an extra plugin that sets these tags based on featured images. For instance like this one (I haven't tried it myself):
