I have more success in copying the short URL and posting on FB that way. I usually get a variety of photos from which to choose. Good luck!
Post the photo manually or make sure that you have your photo of choice in the featured photo area at the top of your post.
Julie - Now there is something that needs some attention here on Active Rain. It should be easy to share posts in Facebook, yet it seems like there are a lot of issues.
What Susan Emo said...
The others have answered the question.
Good morning Julie. It seems as if Susan has a very good answer. Try that.
Follow the suggestions in the comments here as the FB share button does not work most of time.
when you try to share it where?
The interface between ActiveRain and Facebook is faulty. As others have suggested, use the URL that should give you a selection of images.
Do not use the AR share buttons. Do it the long way & copy the link itself. Then the post pic should come up.
You must be talking about Facebook. Sometimes you can change the photo with the arrow toggle. I choose to copy the url and not use the share button that way I have total contol over the photos I use.
That is strange. I would contact support as that sounds like a technical issue.
You may also want to just try to share it directly on FB (copy the link) and maybe it will come out right. Unfortunately, the plug in they are using here doesn't seem to interact very well w/ FB and there are many issues. Often, for me, it doesn't show any photo.
