I recently started my first blog and posted my first post and the shared it on Facebook. After posting I changed my mind about the featured photo on the post so I changed it. But now when I share it on Facebook it still shows the same old photo even after deleting the post and sharing it again and deleting the post

I recently started my first blog and posted my first post and the shared it on Facebook. After posting I changed my mind about the featured photo on the post so I changed it. But now when I share it on Facebook it still shows the same old photo even after deleting the post and sharing it again and deleting the post and posting it again. What to do?

Best Answer:

Alpine: Yeah..I've seen this happen before…facebook seems to cache the featured image in WordPress posts sometimes and the only way to get around it is to change the post. Just make sure in wp post editor that the URL (permalink) changes.

Other answer:

Alpine:
You would change the featured photo in your wordpress article.
Windowphobe:
Lose the featured photo. If your link is at all worth reading, whatever photo ends up on Facebook is largely irrelevant and possibly detrimental to your traffic — if they've seen a picture, why do they need to go to your site at all?
Pedestrian:
wtf
