Facebook Debugger: Extracting correct thumbnail options on WordPress-to-FB-Sharing

When I tried to share my blog post on my Facebook Timeline, the FB end kept failing to extracting the correct thumbnails options from the post’s content.

Consulted Dr. Google, and found the facebook debugger.

Super user-friendly:

1. Paste the WP post’s URL into the text box within the debugger page.

2. Return to blog post and click the FB share icon again. This time it should show the correct thumbnail options.


This is quite strange, as I am not quite sure why this works — thoughI am contend to share the solution in the spirit of prescribing phenytoin for epilepsy!

This debugger is suppose to show you how a page appears to FB Scraper. However, in my case, it seems to have taught the scraper instead… Well well.

Now let’s hope the success doesn’t revert in a bit! However, even if it were to be a mere temporary relief, it seems worth it since most FB posts grows less-hot rather quickly any ways.
