Or maybe you changed that image after publishing and you cannot get new shares on Facebook to reflect that change.

Here’s my tip. In the case of it pulling in the old one, make sure you have deleted it from your media gallery.

If not, scrape it again by pushing the button. Chances are good, this will solve your problem.
