In this article, we’ll detail why Facebook might not display the correct thumbnails correctly, and how to fix this common WordPress issue.

How to fix Facebook sharing WordPress website article thumbnails are not correct?

Reasons Facebook is not getting thumbnails:

Facebook introduced the Open Graph tag in 2010 to facilitate integration between Facebook and other websites by allowing articles to be rich objects with the same functionality as other Facebook objects.

It helps Facebook optimize articles by allowing more control over how information is transferred from third-party sites to Facebook when a page is shared. The Open Graph tag is used to share this information.

So if you’re having trouble with your thumbnails in Facebook, it’s probably from the Snaps tab you’ve opened. For example, you might have multiple images set in the og:image tag, and your feature image is smaller than the others.

Or you might not have any og:images and Facebook might not be able to retrieve your thumbnails.

Once we know why facebook is not grabbing thumbnails, let’s see how to fix it!
