Posts Shared on FaceBook: Picture Question
« on: May 08, 2014 @ 08:56 PM »
My question is, when I share a blog post to Facebook, my post pic isn't always shared as well. A lot of times, FB chooses my header to display. What's up with that? If the pic is mine and on my computer, it seems to stick. Otherwise, no. Help, please!

I know this issue. You have to use the Facebook Open Graph META Tags for images and specif the one you need to use
<meta property="og:image" content=""/>

Hope this helps!

Hi Kerry,

I also checked on my Facebook page, but when you post you also have the option to upload an image from your computer. It may be less painful to just either upload the image from your computer, or if you don't have it on your machine for one reason or another, save it from the Web and then upload it for your specific post.

I hope that helps!

I have this problem too. I noticed this last time that they have a small arrow that scrolls through random photos on my site. Sometimes I get lucky and it's the picture I need.
