  5. I try to share music and videos from youtube occasionally onto my FB page. They're usually older songs and videos from the 60's and just random selections that I come across and want to share. Yesterday I tried to share several and I could only get 3 to post to my profile page using google url shortener, so I thought I might be doing something wrong. Which link are you referring to?

  7. OMG I think this actually fixed my problem Been searching for a solution and this one is so easy. I think my problem started when I switched to the new Blogger interface. I've been messing around with templates and switching back and forth between the new and old interface. Thank you thank you!

  10. @RobinDesHautbois After checking your link I found that you placed a video at starting.. Because of that video you are getting black square because video generally donot generate thumbnail...
    Please use a Image at starting of Post so that that image act as thumbnail.. for your post.

  16. @thesz Hey i checked your link and your video is private... i cant c your video.. so thr is problem in video not link.. first make this video public than try to share...

  17. Stasha - I've found that when I share links to specific blog posts - as in, http://lacquerman.blogspot.com/2012/05/my-first-lippmanns-dancing-in-sheets.html - on Facebook, I'll get a thumbnail from the post itself. But if I only share the link to the blog, as http://lacquerman.blogspot.com, then Facebook only finds one image from a sidebar widget, which is never the image I want for my thumbnail. I haven't tried using a link shortener, but it should work the same way.

  18. Thank you for the solution. It worked like a charm. But I have one more question. This 'not posting thumbnail' problem does not happen with all of my posts. I published a post yesterday and it worked fine. Today it did not. The thumbnail is problem is solved by your tips but I have Facebook like button added in my blog posts. The main problem is that even people like the post, the like count does not increase leaving a negative impact on my post.
    Do you have a solution for that?
    Regards

    1. Hey thanks for visiting my blog.This method is only support those links which are not banned or spammed by facebook or Google. If your link is banned by facebook than there is no way to trick facebook using above method. There may be some other methods like link redirection (which is also monitored by facebook and your redirecting link can be banned again).
      Thank You and please subscribe to blog feeds
