When I type in my web address on my Facebook page to share the entire blog, no image shows up. There is a spot for it, but mine is blank (I do have a cover photo selected) … beautythroughmylens.com … how do I set this for when I share my entire blog and not just one post? Thanks!!

Hi,
Try your site in this facebook debugger tool.
http://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug
It will tell you what is missing. Eg. below in page head (header.php file)

<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
<meta property="og:title" content="Beauty Through My Lens" />
<meta property="og:image" content="https://s0.wp.com/i/blank.jpg" />
<meta property="og:site_name" content="Beauty Through My Lens" />
<meta property="og:url" content="http://www.beautythroughmylens.com/" />
<meta property="og:description" content="finding beauty in the everyday ordinary" />

There are different ways depending on how your site is built. Eg. This WordPress plugin.
Hope this helps !

Thank you for the reply…I ran this through, and I am unsure what steps I need to take to ensure proper sharing capabilities on social media? Is there a plug in I need to install to fix the issue? Or is this just something from my connection to social media sites? When I run the debug tool, it states this…
Warnings That Should Be Fixed
og:image could not be downloaded or is too small og:image was not defined, could not be downloaded or was not big enough. Please define a chosen image using the og:image metatag, and use an image that’s at least 200x200px and is accessible from Facebook. Image ‘http://i0.wp.com/www.beautythroughmylens.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IMG_5513.jpg?resize=750%2C500‘ will be used instead.

I’m not quite sure what I need to do to fix this…the image is larger than 200X200.

Any help provided would be greatly appreciated as I am not reaching the audience I’d like due to public sharing being down…

@jessica: i think in : <meta property="og:image" content="< your image link >" /> You need the real size origin image Url, not the image with ?resize=....
