How did someone else picture showed up on my hub?

    I just  shared my latest recipe hub on 'my space' and the thumbnail that showed up beside my recipe hub title was from another person's hub. I was so shocked that I took it down right away. How do you figure that happened?

      Try using a larger image. If your image is 'too small' in terms of pixels and dimensions then many sites seem to skip that image and go to the next image they find that is large enough. I am betting that if you upload a picture with much larger dimensions you will find the correct image appears next to your article if you post it again. I see this happen so often, and it has happened to me before on various sites.

        mistyhorizon2003, the first photo for my last hub is the first capsule in that hub, then comes a text and a photo capsule side by side. thank you for your answer mistyhorizon2003.

          That is just the size of the image in terms of how you see it on the page. I mean the size it is in terms of pixels. I don't know what size it was when you uploaded it, but I have seen images with fairly low kb sizes not appear in favour of images that are later in an article, thread etc that have greater amounts of pixels and are larger in terms of kb size (not amount of space they take up on the page which is a different thing altogether).

            I see, I think I understand what you mean. I didn't pay attention to that. All the vegetables was on my table, and I just point and shoot, then uploaded it.
            Hmm! thanks again mistyhorizon2003, one more thing I just learned.

      Google has a tool that will show you how the snippet info is setup for a particular URL. 
      Try entering your Hub URL here.
      http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets
      It will confirm that the info is structured properly.  If it is not, please let us know.  Sadly I think this may be an issue on Google's end as we have seen this occur before on Facebook, but in that case it was not related to how the data in the URL is shared with other sites.

    I had this happen on my profile picture about a week or so ago. It righted itself after about 24 hours... There's a bug somewhere in the system!

      Oh I hope it rights itself. Thank you for your answer TedWritesStuff.

    That's odd! I'm moving this discussion to the "Report a technical problem" Forum and notifying Matt, our bug-hunting pro, to see if he might have any insights on the issue.

      Okay Simone, Matt can use my latest hub to hunt. I won't be sharing it any time soon. Thank you Simone, and happy hunting to Matt!

    Sometimes when you post a link on Facebook you have the option to select which thumbnail you want to use. You have to click on the right arrow under the thumbnail image until you see your thumbnail. It should be there.
