Hub sharing on Facebook

    When a hub is usually shared on Facebook, the photos in the hub appear as thumbnail, but now, the thumbnail is not working. Why? Without the thumbnail the link is not very attractive.

      Agreed. I just posted my new hub link to Facebook a few minutes ago and I kept re-entering it to see if it wasn't taking the thumbnails for some reason. I tested a status update with another URL and it found a thumbnail though. Sorry, that's not much of an answer, but it is better to know that it's not just one account or something. Hopefully an answer will be posted here, soon.

      When this happens, and I have had it happen at various times, I go to the stats and get the short URL, then pop into Facebook and post that URL into my status, and for some reason, that short URL will pick up the photo and the related meta info (description) of the hub.

      You can find that URL by clicking on your hub, Stats, then Hub Metrics, and you will find the Short URL there at the bottom.

    A few weeks ago the Facebook button disappeared completely from my pages.  I used to use the Share button on my articles then click Twitter and Facebook, and that was it!  Lovely, image and script!  Nowadays I only have the Twitter button which works perfectly, Facebook has left me completely!  How can I get the Share button back, or put my articles on to Facebook as in the past.  Help please?

        Yes, some kind gentleman  told me that a few days ago, and it works!  Thanks so much for help!.   Hub pages Editors do not know there is a problem!

    Sharing option is indeed unavailable. I copy the link from the address bar and post in facebook. Also the icon issue seems to have resurfaced.
