To post other users posts you need administrator rights for the blog.
I posted an update without selecting an image, but in some networks the post still does appear with an image.
If the page the post links to provides respective meta-tags in the page header, some networks read out these tags and scrape the image that is named in the tags. For WordPress this is usually the post image or a default image as fall-back.
I receive the following error message: “An unknown error has occurred! Please ensure that your website address (URL)is reachable”.
The social networks require public links in the posts. If your WordPress or your post is not accessible for public, this error will appear. Please make sure that your post is published for “public”.
