Incorrect or no photo at all in my Facebook posts

Most likely the problem is with original articles from the content feed you are using for posting, precisely with how the website pages of original articles are formatted.


When we make a post to Facebook, we use a link to an original article from your feed and Facebook pulls the data it needs for a post from that link, including title and image. It uses metadata tags of the original pages.

And looks like that articles' pages mentioned in your feed are not well formatted, or formatted the way that Facebook can't fetch the correct data. 

Some time ago we could attach an image to each Facebook post, but since some recent updates Facebook has restricted this option and allows to attach images to posts only if you verify that you own the domain the images are linked to.

If you own the website and have access to its administration, there are two ways on how to improve images posting:

1. You have to make sure your pages are formatted the right way.
Here is the instruction from Facebook on how to set up pages' metadata so it pulls the correct image from your pages:
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/webmasters/getting-started/basic-link/

Facebook suggests to specify image links in metadata tags of your website pages like this:
<meta property="og:image" content="your_image_url">

Also, check the Facebook requirements to post images:
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/webmasters/images


2. Another way is to verify your ownership of the domain name of your feed. Here are the instructions:
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/domain-verification


In this case, we will be able to take images from your feed and attach them to your Facebook posts correctly.

However, you need to make sure that all images are linked to your verified domain. That means that all of your images have to be hosted on this same domain but not on a third-party domain like cloud server or CDN.

Unfortunately, there is not much we can do about image attachments to Facebook posts. Hope Facebook will lift these restrictions sometime soon.
