Since a couple of weeks facebook cannot find new blogpost-url’s anymore, that are being shared my myself or others.
FB-Debugger says: Provided og:image is not big enough. Please use an image that’s at least 200×200 px.
The (featured media) image I added to the slideshow is indeed bigger than required, but the debugger is relating to another image. This one: …/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif
We where discussing another problem with this image in this post earlier last year: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/small-thing-no-index-tag-for-category-pages-wordpress-seo-plugin/
This is interesting: After running the fb-debugger on the post url, fb can grab the correct image again. But this is just a manual workaround. I need a permanent solution, because I am using automated posting techniques like hootsuite…
What’s the use of this tinymce-gif. I am not using a tinymice(!?)-plugin.
Any idea what I could do to solve this? I still get robot.txt-problems in the webmastertools, too. But this is not a real problem, but I thought I mention it.

This sounds like an issue with Facebook/WordPress rather than a theme issue. The facebook debug is actually a very common thing for anyone posting to Facebook because Facebook so often messes up which image to grab or which snippet. Adding your url to the debugger force Facebook to refresh its cached data on your site and it ‘fixes’ things.
The theme itself doesn’t set your open graph data and it is all take care of by third party plugins like WordPress SEO or others.
