Why doesn’t my new Favicon appear on my WordPress site?

Last week I created a website on WordPress.com and used my Gravatar Profile Pic as the blog image/icon.

But today when i changed it to a different image (both my Gravatar Image and Blog image in General Settings), the favicon does not change.

The Situation is:
1. New Image coming on the right side of the dashboard but not on left.
2. New Image is shown in the Blog Image but not as favicon.

Moreover if a simply copy paste the url in Facebook, the old image comes up as the thumbnail.

What’s the fix?

    I am adding the images of the topbar of my dashboard.

    First is the right hand side of the bar showing my profile, Notice that the Blavatar in the first pic is the 'white' one.
    Second is the left hand side of the bar showing the current favicon/Blavatar which is being displayed.

    I have tried cleaning cache and everything, tried different browsers, even tried different computers, but no result.
