In our blog posts when people click the facebook like button it shares the wrong photo. I use the featured image feature so I'm not sure what's wrong.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks!

I'm afraid this sounds like a problem you need to ask Facebook.

This can happen just from having one image there and then changing it after facebook has cached it, or not having open graph data turned on.

Make sure you have "Display facebook Opengraph data in page header" enabled under Site Options. If you have another plugin that is adding open graph data there may be a conflict of sorts.

From there, you will need to clear the wrong image from facebook's cache. To do this, enter the offending page's url into the Facebook debugger here:

Please Login or Register to see this Hidden Content

and click Debug. This will force facebook to reparse the page which will also grab the right image, if it is defined properly in the opengraph meta.

That should clear things up for you! ;)
