[resolved] Provided og:image is not big enough (Facebook) (4 posts)

    Hi, I am having problems with displaying the correct images in facebook when someone shares my post at http://techdwarf.com

    I have added the image url to the social tab of WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin.

    The Open Graph Warnings in facebook states Provided og:image is not big enough. Please use an image that's at least 200x200 px.

    My images were initially 150x150 px. Because of the Open Graph Warnings, I have resized them to 200x200 px but somehow facebook doesn't sense it. I have used facebook object debugger

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    No idea why. I just kept refreshing facebook debugger and managed to change some images to what I wanted. If this helps, I also changed the images from png to jpg and refreshed the facebook debugger again.

    I think with time and constant refreshing of facebook debugger, I will get facebook to refresh the correct image for all my pages.

    facebook debugger:

    Running my pages trough debugger did sort my issue out.
    On 1st load reported that images ware not big enough, but after refresh all went fine and share button now picks them up.
    Many thanks for pointing in the right direction

    I have same problem, WP SEO will just use the image in the post, which may not have enough size of facebook.

    Is there any method to force WP SEO use orginal image instead of the resized one as og:image?
