About one week ago, I accidentally deleted my entire main media library via ftp (I was working in one of my subdomains, and thought I was deleting the media from the subdomain).
Fortunately, I had saved the entire library to my desktop in a folder, keeping all the upload years/months in tact, so I quickly uploaded the entire library via ftp.
The great news is that all image files have been restored to their exact location, and none of my posts/products have broken links. They all appear intact in the library, as they were prior to my stupid mistake.
So all is good; however, the bad news is that none of these images are available to pinterest, Google+ or Facebook when I paste a new post's url to post in any of these social medias. Prior to this, I could paste the link of a new post and the featured image would automatically be available too, to go with the post.
Now, when I attempt to pin new post (content), Pinterest gives me "Sorry we could not fetch the image" error. With Facebook and G+, the image just isn't available. This leads me to believe something is missing somewhere!
Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong with the Media library and how I can fix it? Hope it's a simple fix!

Not to promote myself....believe me, at this point, this is the last thing I want or need, but go ahead and grab a post and try pinning it to Pinterest, G+ or even Facebook, and you'll see the image will not appear. You have my permission to delete it once you see what I'm talking about! *grin*
I even completely uninstalled WP Super Cache and reinstalled a fresh copy of WordPress, but problem still exists.
I hope someone can help me get to the bottom of this!
thank you so much!!!
