[resolved] Thumbnails for Facebook (Featured Images) (5 posts)

    Hello, I believe this plugin has been interfering with the ability to share my featured image for my posts. I have set a featured image for my posts but when I share to Facebook, the featured image doesn’t appear, only my logo. It’s working for google plus but not yet on Facebook.

    I want to give you a heads up to look into this issue and hopefully help me and others out!

    Thanks so much!

    Hi there,

    In order to select which image to use when your users share to Facebook, you should set up your open graph meta tags, which tells Facebook and other social networks which image, title, description, etc... to show in their link previews.

    Take a look at this guide for reference:

    Also, there are a bunch of WordPress plugins that will add this in automatically for you:

    And a handy debugging tool from Facebook so you can see what they see when they visit your website:
