Adding a Social Sharing Logo

The Social Sharing Logo displays on social networks (like Facebook) when you post a URL from your site.

While it's optional, adding a Social Sharing Logo ensures that you can always include an image in social posts linking to your content, even if the page you're sharing doesn't include images.

Note: To help social networks like Facebook surface the best image to post, we tag images according to the rules below. However, the social network has final say over what appears in the post, not Squarespace. Facebook and other social networks occasionally pull images from cached (older) versions of your site. For help, visit Troubleshooting Facebook sharing issues.

Add a Social Sharing Logo

In the Home Menu, click Design, and then click Logo & Title.

Scroll down to Social Sharing Logo, then drag your image into the image uploader. You can also click Add a social logo to open a file selection menu, then select a file from your computer.

Note: Images shared on Facebook must be at least 200px × 200px. However, Facebook changes their preferred image sizes frequently. If your image appears cropped, we recommend experimenting with image sizes for current best practices. For more help, visit Facebook's documentation.

Scroll up and click Save.

Which image displays in social posts

When you share content on social networks, Squarespace suggests an image based on the content type (for example, a blog post, your homepage, or a product) and available images. Pages suggest the Social Sharing Logo, while collection items, such as blog posts or products, suggest the item thumbnail image.

If these images are unavailable, Squarespace will suggest additional images based on the content type. If none of these suggested images are available, the social media platform will determine an appropriate image on its own. 

Note: To let the social network select an image when sharing content, leave the Social Sharing Logo blank.
