I use Facebook, Digg, Reddit and Redgage to post links to new hubs. I also use Technorati, which is supposed to pick up new hubs automatically.
Thumbnails of photos used to post with the link for Facebook and Redgage. I can't get any thumbnail to post in the links. Also, Technorati automatically posted my new hubs with RSS, but now isn't able to pick them up.
These are both potentially design and/or format changes. Could you please check these?
Thank you for your work!
Sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing.
Are you saying that Facebook posts are not being properly pulled into Technorati? Do you have an example of what is not working?
Perhaps a screenshot?
Here is the sort of thing for which we look when trying to track down a potential bug:
No, I'm not trying to pull FB into Technorati.
When I share to FB from my new hub, the link appears, but without a thumbnail. The same for Redgage.
Technorati seems to have simply lost the ability to get my hubs via RSS.
Sadly, the issue you are describing with Facebook not getting thumbnail images occurs regularly and without explanation from FB, and for links other than HubPages. I have experienced it myself countless times posting my blog and other URLs to FB.
You can get around the issue by posting an image URL followed by the Hub URL. The FB post will then display the image.
You may try clearing your cache, but what usually happens is that whatever problem FB is having will stop, again with no explanation.
As for Technorati parsing your RSS feed, I looked at the source and loaded the feed in Google Reader and see images in both of the feeds.
Some of your Hubs are not displaying thumbnails, but I think we do some logic to determine if the Hub contains good and large enough images from which to create thumbnails.
Is Technorati not displaying any of the images?
Do you happen to have any info related to what Technorati expects in an RSS feed?

When I post a link to one of my Hubs on Facebook, it usually displays a thumbnail picture, the title of the Hub and some of the summary. However, recently when I've posted links on Facebook (in the past week or so), the only thing that shows up is... the link. No picture, no summary, nothin'....

How can I use a thumbnail capsule on my hub?I used a topic template to create a hub and it had a capsule with one large photo and then several thumbnails to chose from. I added my own photos to the capsule but now each is being displayed full size and I can't work out out to get it back to how it...

I spend endless hours maybe two months ago redesigning my first photo so they would look good on the thumbnails on the profile pages and also on facebook. The latest change has made all that work a waste.A few of the thumbnails look better, but most now look off-kilter and have the text cut off. I...

I have seen in most of the hubs about how they are keeping thumbnail images even after a list of photos. for example: if we have 20 pics, how we can keep only 5 or 6 thumbnail images on above the slide show.

Why is it that the photo that is loaded does not show up as the thumbnail next the hub on the topics page or even under my profile page? I'm confused as some of the thumbnails show the image of the hub (ie. peanut butter cookies) but not in others, even though I used it as a template (ie....

I published my first two video hubs last week and am not really satisfied at all with the 4 thumbnail options that have been created for each video during processing.I can see how I can change the first few seconds of my video to possibly get an acceptable thumbnail, but (and I realize this is...
