    You know how it works. You paste the url to a webpage inside the "what's on your mind?" box on Facebook, and the FB engine or whatever will automatically fetch a preview image to go along with your link.

    But sometimes, for whatever reason, Facebook cannot or will not fetch a preview image for you.

    I would like to know if there's anyway to remedy this bug?

    I dont use facebook but can it be because you pasted the link at a later time? Like if you start by pasting a link it will check it from the beginning but if you already wrote some stuff and just paste a link to the existing text you already wrote it might not care about it.

    Check connection speed. Sometimes if it's laggy af. It won't work

    Check URL link. Sometimes without the www it won't work. Cause it dumb .

    I've noticed that FB will get the preview image immediately if I hit [Return] after I paste the link. That is, even if the link is the last thing you add to the text box, you should still hit [Return] for a new line.
