[resolved] og:image picks up the smallest thumbnail of the Featured Image (7 posts)

    Just noticed that no matter what size I select from the Media popup, the meta og:image info will always select the 150x150 thumbnail, and set the URL and image sizes accordingly.

    This may be a WordPress limitation, in which case my other request about custom og: fields has another use case.

    If I recall correctly this is was intentional, since og:image was supposed to contain a link to a thumbnail image.

    Nevertheless, I added your request to the bug tracker for further investigation. Thanks.

    I mark this issue as invalid, since this is by design. After doing some research I've come to the conclusion that 'og:image' should be used for thumbnails.

    If you have any better suggestion, please feel free to provide your feedback.

    I'm marking this thread as 'resolved'. Thanks for reporting.

    I believe selecting the 150x150 thumbnail is a problem, because Facebook complains with the following message:

    All the images referenced by og:image should be at least 200px in both dimensions, with 1500x1500 preferred. (Maximum image size is 5MB.) Please check all the images with tag og:image in the given url and ensure that it meets the recommended specification.

    The default sizes are thumbnail, medium, large, full. Which one do you think would be the most suitable? I was thinking of 'medium' or 'large'. Your feedback is welcome.
