[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Google+ wrong Thumbnail and facebook to small image (6 posts)

    When clicking the google+ like button a totally different Thumbnail appear. I have a couple of options to change the Thumbnail but nothing from the actual post.

    Looking at the url with facebook debugging tool it complains that the image is to small. When I like the post the image appears but when I'm sharing no image.
    I have a ton of post with this images size.... :P help

    Small og:image:
    All the images referenced by og:image should be at least 200px in both dimensions. Please check all the images with tag og:image in the given url and ensure that it meets the recommended specification.

    I've had this problem as well. It would be nice if there were settings in the plugin which let you specify which thumbnail size to use for the OpenGraph image.

    For a bit of follow-up, the problem is that WordPress SEO automatically adds an og:image for you, which is great. But in what is probably its most useful case, Facebook, they require an image with a minimum height of 200px. Read here. http://developers.facebook.com/docs/concepts/opengraph/distribution/#image

    A bit of control over what the plugin uses for the og image would be nice. At the moment if you pass Facebook an undersized image with og:image the scraper just gives up and you lose the benefit of the remaining valid og tags.

    If most of my featured images have a max size of 150x150 what would you recommend I do?

    I have a lot. Is it possible to generate a 200x200 version of these easily?

    You might have to write a script that detects the image size, identifies cases that are smaller than 200x200, generate a thumb of that size and feed it in using a filter. That would be a pain.
