I have the same problem. The Simple Facebook share plug in worked well when I only had a few posts. As I have added more galleries, and posts, when I go to share the latest post using the Facebook Share button – it consistently presents 4 thumbnails from completely different and earlier galleries that I posted weeks ago (2 images from 2 earlier galleries.
I added the plug in “add image_src Meta tag” as well as ‘Facebook and Digg Thumbnail generator’ and there has been no change it still does the same thing. HELP PLEASE
Your assistance would be most appreciated.
I have created a plugin to use the first image of the post as the thumbnail. Here it is – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook-like-thumbnail/
I just did a svn check-in so it might take a moment to be available. You can access it on my blog till then – http://blog.ashfame.com/?p=888
I hope you can help me. I installed your plugin, made the change to the $default img, and waited 24 hours. Facebook is still showing the wrong image.
Your help is appreciated,
Check your page with the lint tool – https://developers.facebook.com/tools/lint/
The tool will refresh the Facebook cache of that page’s image. So you can get to know if its working or not.
Thanks so much for your quick reply. I forgot to mention that I did use the lint tool and it is showing up with the thumbnail specified as the Featured Image.
Here’s the lint results:
The plugin will pick the first image of the post to show up as the one as a thumbnail on FB, so if you can see the image, what’s the problem?
ok can you add me (if your wall is private) and then give me a direct link of one of those likes – https://facebook.com/ashfame
ok this has been resolved, it was some delay in the thumbnails being refreshed even after using lint tool
You are amazing. I will look forward to using more of your plugins.
I cannot seem to get your plug in to work for me. Can I ask you please for your help in diagnosing why. When I like or post to Facebook – there are NO pictures that thumbnail for me to include. It was working several weeks ago but stopped.

your assistance would be much appreciated.
Facebook will take 24 hours to scrap your pages again and will fix it on all the pages. So, if you need to check whether its working or not, use the lint tool – https://developers.facebook.com/tools/lint/
The plugin will pick the first image of the post to show up as the thumbnail. If the post doesn’t have an image in it, it will fallback to a default image which you can edit in the plugin file and put in the path for your URL there. Details for editing are here – http://blog.ashfame.com/?p=888
