Why doesn’t a thumbnail show when I share a Blogger post on Facebook?

Jean Daccache March 13, 2012

After creating a new post on blogger i tried to share the link of that post on my Facebook page but no thumbnail or tile appeared only the link itself which is very annoying. Can anyone help me with this ?

PS: in the previously mentioned post i have a picture saved with it and displayed well on my blog

      In my case I notice that Facebook will only show .jpg photos as thumbnails. If you have .png or .svg or whatever it will not become a thumbnail.

    Hmmm, I am having the same problem and decided to try your 24 hour trick and linked an older blogger page of mine to FB and still no thumbnail ... frustrating!

    Sorry everyone for the late reply, yes i found the answer. I found out that blogger needs 24 hours to store or deleted any picture related to your post, this is why if you publish your post and try after a few minutes to post its link on facebook no thumbnail or title will appear, so what you need to do is save your post as draft and and post it the next day after 24 hours. I tried this method with one of my new posts and it worked and still working for me, hope i helped you all too

    Check my blog and my facebook page to see the results

    I'm not seeing the problem here.  When I looked at the blog and the FB page, the uTorrent logo is there on both.  Did you do something to resolve the issue already or do you still see the same thing on your machine?

    maybe because of some htaccess like tricks! some services change some rules on their service to prevent B/W leeching. sth like it:
    #disable hotlinking of images with forbidden or custom image option

    RewriteEngine on

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www.)?yourdomain.com/.*$ [NC]

    RewriteRule .(gif|jpg|png)$ - [F]

    Hello Jean,
    You have no Images in the new post on blogger therefore when you post your link on Facebook it doesn't find any images and therefore no thumbnail or tile appears.
