    I have my blog posts set up to post on Facebook automatically. But the pictures that are posting on FB within the post are not the same picture that is in my blog post. For example, my most recent post on Facial Toner showed up on Facebook with the picture I used for my Essential Oils 101 class. any ideas?

    Looking at your site and at your Facebook page, it looks like the Essential Oils 101 class was linked to the actual class, that was not a blog post. So long as you have the featured image set, Facebook should pull that image into its post.

    When you are on the ‘create a post page', you can go to the bottom and uncheck the Image(s) to use: box and then select the image you want to send to Facebook.

    So this is the link to your blog post: http://fieldsofdandelions.com/facial-toner/

    When we put this into Facebook, it pulls the right image for us. Try putting the link into Facebook and see what image FB pulls for you, maybe there is a cache issue with either your PC or facebook holding onto an old image.

    It is likely a Facebook issue where if you push the post without an image, then delete the post, add an image and repost, Facebook is caching the original image and not pulling in the correct image. We are not sure how long FB caches images and there is not anything you can do other than wait a couple of hours and retry.

    I have this same problem. I post a link to one of the blog posts (not one I've created) and the photo that shows on FB isn't even in the article. The featured image on my website blog post is fine, but it won't show when I post on FB. Here's my example:http://laurisackett.com/8-ways-to-celebrate-dad-this-fathers-day/. It gave me 4 photo choices, but none related to the article. I've found that this is hit or miss depending on the link I'm trying to post.
