Ron Dobrosielski - It's a good idea to go to Facebook page and post the link directly. Should not show blank page, to best of my knowledge.

And I do believe you get an option to select a picture from your post..

That's the place usually I do not post the links - checking other answers....

You must add a photo manually. Many post manually to Facebook because of this.

The ActiveRain interface with Facebook needs some work. Use your URL to get a selection of images. Images in your signature can also make these posts more difficult.

The plugin they have here ("Add this") doesn't work well w/ FB.  You are better off posting directly on FB.  Usually the pict will then show up (sometimes you need to try a few times) and will do better w/ the algo there.

I do not post directly from a blog, but rather copy/paste a link. Try. Only Pinterest shares work well.

Ron Dobrosielski Several ways:  easiest is to add photo at beginning of your post; second, in settings set up your signature that includes a photo; another way, create Short URL and manually add photo.

Sometimes if you try it few (or several) times, the photo will appear.  It's undoubtedly an annoying glitch.

Since pictures are so important, I will often just upload a photo to go with the post in Facebook itself.  Not sure why this happens.
