Hi there, I'm having a small issue with sharing my posts to facebook.

- My website has a header image, and for each post I set a featured image.

-I am using songwriter theme.

- Every time I share a post from my website to facebook (using the social share buttons), facebook displays my website header image every single time, not the image associated with the post.

Does anyone know how to change this?

Thanks for your help :)

With a post. When you post to your social media sites it will always feature the last image you put on that page when you are in Edit Mode..
I haven't come across any way to change this yet but I will keep looking.

It shows my logo, not the featured image. Last thing I added was the featured image.

The featured image is just that - a feature of your page set by WP for pages and not an add-on such as an image or pic such as you would put in a post.
That last pic will be the one shown on social media unless you do it manually on the SM site itself.
You do get a choice of 3 with Google and LinkedIn though.

I don't mean to bring up an ended discussion, but has anyone found a fix for this? I am having this issue also.

How would I be able to change it? I looked under SEO settings in the post and there is not an option like that.

For me happened kind of the same. When I try to share one page it is taking an image I don't know from where, because it is totally different from the ones I have in the site, but when I publish (I published just for me to see how it was going to appear) it shows no image. Which is not that bad....
Then I changed an image in a post, and when I tried to share on Facebook, again it is just publishing the original image.
It doesn't happen when sharing on Google+......
