[Resolved] [Plugin: Social] Strange image with post

    Social sends a your “featured image” to Facebook. If you haven’t set one, Facebook takes a guess by looking at the page.

    Alex, is there any way that we can select which featured picture to use from the Broadcast window?

    I’m using Yoast WordPress SEO 1.2.2, which adds Facebook OG Meta Tags to articles and automatically tags images in the article body as “og:image”. It seems a bit odd that even when we have multiple featured images, we can’t choose between them.

    WordPress only supports one featured image per post:

    I’m aware of that, but it doesn’t answer my question.

    When using a plugin like Yoast’s WordPress SEO, all article images get an og:image meta tag, which means they can be used as the thumbnail when sharing on Facebook. Is there any reason Social doesn’t have that functionality? Seems like something pretty simple to add to the Broadcast window.
