I am trying to promote my hubs by writing a post about them in my blog. The wrong picture comes up when I put the link into a facebook post.
I used facebookdebugger tool after I changed the first image in the text of my blogspot blog. I want the "Debunking Jesus" pic to show. The debugger tool is still showing the wrong image. It says og.not defined. How do I define the og (whatever that is) Here is the link to the blog. http://newsprintpoetry.blogspot.com/201 … jesus.html
I really need to learn how to fix the HTML in blogspot so the first picture above the text will show instead of the pictures from the left side of the page.
Thanks so much for helping out.
Why do you feel that writing about your Hubs on your blog will help with promotion?
If you get a lot of readers on your blog, who will then follow the link, then it is worth doing. If you do not get a lot of readers on your blog, then it will not help very much, if at all - you would do better to look for other places where you can write an article and link to the Hub.
What's the image you're trying to use?
Doms: I'm trying to use the first picture above the text. I'm going to try removing the pictures on the side and see if that helps.
Facebook is letting me choose from between 3 pictures when I post to facebook and one of them is the one I want to use. But if I post the link into comments on facebook, the wrong picture comes up. I use the option given to "remove preview", but then I don't have a picture. A picture would be better.

The problem is not you or Blogspot. FB pulls this and other crap on other websites as well and has been doing so for years, including our hubs on HubPages. Personally, I've given up on FB for more reasons than I can count.
If someone actually comes along and posts a solution to this problem, I'll give them a hug or a handshake depending.
paradigm: The bebugger tool works when I change the first picture on my hub. I did that on some of my hubs trying to make the picture look good both on HP thumbnails and facebook.
My remedy when FB is acting up. I have FB pages for 2 of my sites. I put post on them first, the images always appear correctly, then I share to my timeline.
Catherine: When I post link from an article that is on my sites, on Facebook, in my timeline, the photo does not show up at all or it shows a Square with F for facebook, etc. Now, I post link on my FB page for my website and the image almost always appears correctly or I get an image box with arrow so I can select from others in same article. After I do that I either hit the share button or simply add link to my timeline on FB and it appears correctly.
If you are having a problem posting from HP, do the debugger, copy what you see and send it to email@example.com, because it is usually a coding issue between HP and FB every time.
Posting from blogger, for some reason, has become a PIA when you want your image to show for some reason if you are posting a Blogger post, rather than a page from Blogger. When I post a link to a blog post image is always wrong, and I can never get it right, but if i post link from a page on Blogger, then image shows correctly.
Good news Catherine: I just posted your link on my FB tiimeline. Image was WRONG!!! BUT, look at the image box, when you post it, and there is a small arrow, which I clicked on, got correct image and then hit publish. Now your post is on my FB timeline with the correct image.
Here is link to my facebook : https://XXX.facebook.com/linsm76
replace xxx with www
It won't work correctly on Writers Door though. I have the same problem there as well sometimes.
Just an fyi that the website link on your profile doesn't work.

Hi I spent an hour researching online but no one seems to have the answer. On other sites I've been able to post my articles via URL on my Facebook FAN page with the picture, text popping up, but not HUB articles. No...

Some hubs don't show a thumbnail (my hubs don't) when posting to facebook, but some do.I don't know if Facebook is unable to recognize a photo on certain hub accounts or what, but I thought I'd let you know.

I created a blog earlier this year, but I took it offline about a month or so ago. I had written a tutorial on how to make hair bows (with photos that I took and everything) and I still have it saved as a document on my...
