When I change the first photo of my hub, and then post the hub to facebook, the original photo shows in the facebook post, even tho I have deleted that original photo. Is there a way to get the new photo to show?
If I paste the new picture into facebook, the picture no longer serves as a link. A reader has to click the link that I insert into the post to get to the hub.
CatherineGiordano, when you post to FB and don't get the photo you want, simply delete the post and re-post, only this time put in the photo you want from your saved ones on your computer. Use the camera icon in the right hand corner to do that. The photo will come up a bit larger than a normal post, but it's still better than having the wrong photo with the article.
Yes, I do that sometimes and that works fine except clicking the photo doesn't get you to the hub.
Facebook often cuts off part of the picture. This is mostly a problem when it cuts text.
I don't understand why facebook continues to show a picture that has been deleted. If I understood maybe I could figure out a work-around.
HP wants square photos, fb wants rectangular photos. I'm trying to design photos that work for both.
I usually have text on my first photo in a hub. To make sure it shows on the square thumbnails photos HP uses in the profile, I keep the text in the center. I can redo the picture until I get it right. I try to position the text in the first place for facebook, but there is no way to test it. Even if I replace the picture, facebook uses the original deleted photo. Facebbok likes pictures rectangular so I'm trying to use that shape with the text centered. It is hard to serve two masters. Google+ doesn't give me any problems.
It takes forever to get it right. I keep reposting or waiting a little while and then reposting. It is a pain.
I know Facebook is fussy like that. You could try the Facebook debug tool to post, maybe that will help. I haven't tried it in this instance, so do not know if it will work or not. --- https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/
It's fairly common to run into caching issues with posting Hubs to Facebook. Many other Hubbers have been able to correct the issue using colorfulone's suggestion. Best of luck!
It worked. I put the url for the hub into the form and the new picture showed in facebook. Thanks colorfulone and Christy Kirwan. Now I can fix the pictures that are not showing up well in facebook and promote the hubs on facebook much easier.

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 problem posting to my FB profile. But with my fan page it comes up with just...

A discussion started about this on the end of another thread, but it's got buried. I was checking an early Hub today and it reminded me, because I'd used a photo from another website. At that time, I didn't understand that most photos on most websites are copyright, unless they...

Why do some hubbers not have their real picture on their profile?I've seen at least a couple of hubbers who have photos of actors or actresses as their profile image. Whom are they trying to fool and why?

I post my hubs on facebook, my own timeline and on relevant group paages. All my hubs are working normally except the newest. When I use the f button on the hub, it posts to my timeline, but without the blurb. When I use the url to post on a facebook group page, the picture won't show up. All that...
