Facebook Like Button Sharing Wrong Photo

Recommended Posts

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: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug 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! ;)

      The counter next to the icon in the Sharebar extension adds more mess than value for us. 
      Is there an easy way/code to hide the counter? (so that the icons line up closer?)

      Is there an easy CSS fix to change the social media icons in Sharebar so they are colored, not just on hover?

      Regarding the 'global option' mentioned by Simon in this previous post (to turn off the facebook opengraph data if you are using another plugin that provides it) ...where is this option? I don't seem to be able to find it.
      Many thanks in advance.

      I'm sure this is just user fatigue...but where is the setting to delete the Facebook button in the Splash section of Teamwork? You'd think it would be in the Splash area, but it seems
      to be hiding elsewhere!  You can barely see it... I didn't even notice it until I changed the image.
