Hi there!
I've noticed that with WordPress 5.0.3 the featured image is not more detected when I share a post on Facebook.
Everything right with other versions of WordPress.

Hi @LucaCiz,

Thanks for taking the time to open this bug report, and welcome to Trac! My apologies that it took so long to receive a response.

Are you still experiencing this issue?

WordPress Core does not explicitly support featured images showing when sharing content on social media platforms or Open Graph (Facebook's protocol for providing structured data). There are many things that may cause this issue, but they are most likely plugin or theme related. Social platforms are also known to cache the results of scanning a site for an extended period of time. So sharing a post before setting a featured image may cause the content to be cached with no image for a while.

If you are still experiencing the issue, I recommend recommend opening a ticket on the support forums and linking to that topic here so others can follow along with any debugging steps you take there.
