[Plugin: WordPress Jetpack share] Facebook share not consistent (3 posts)

    This question is referencing Jetpack, but I've tried others too: whatever social plug in I use, I'm having trouble with the Facebook share button.

    Sometimes it shares my post on Facebook as expected. Example: Press Facebook share on this post: http://govinnovator.com/2012/adam-thomas

    For other posts, it shares it without a thumbnail, even though I have a featured image and even an image within the post (with display off so it doesn't show). Example: Press Facebook share on this post: http://govinnovator.com/2012/matt-leighninger

    And for still other posts, it shares my main page but not that specific post. Example: Press Facebook share on this post: http://govinnovator.com/2012/jeff-tryens

    Any advice? When I look at these various posts, I don't see anything different within them that would cause them to act differently so I'm really stumped.

    Hi Andy53711 did you find a solution?

    I'm having the same problem. I get inconsistent facebook share results. http://www.elated.co.za. It pulls in the correct image, title and description on:
    0 of 2 posts
    2 of 10 parent pages (Contact, Resources)
    4 of 5 child pages (Vegan Quotes, Buddhist Vegan Quotes, Vegan Athletes, Press)

    But for all the rest it just adds the name of the site as the description: Enhancing the Lives of Animals Through Ethical Decisions.

    Have deactivated and activated All in one SEO, Jetpack, WP Security, tried other share buttons. The permalinks seem fine. Reinstalled htaccess files.

    Please help!

    If anyone is interested this problem just resolved itself. I had uninstalled a facebook thumbnail plugin 2 days before this post, but that is the only thing that I can think of that caused the problem.
