Is Facebook displaying the wrong preview image when sharing a press release or article?
Facebook not displaying the correct image is a familiar issue users experience from time to time on their WordPress Labour websites. Often Facebook might pull an old image or no image at all. Thankfully, you can easily troubleshoot and fix these issues using the Facebook Debugger tool.
This step-by-step guide will show you how to fix a preview image when sharing a post on Facebook.
When sharing a new or old post on your website, Facebook may either show an old image or no image for the link thumbnail. The Facebook Debugger tool helps to solve these common issues.
In the video below, we use an example article on our website to show you how to fix thumbnail issues using the Facebook Debugger tool and the Yoast SEO Plugin (installed as default on our Labour websites). We use the ‘Debug’ button in the video to correct the thumbnail issue. Achieve the same result by clicking ‘Scrape Again’ either once or twice.
