Social sharing images may display on social networks (like Facebook) when you share a URL from your site. While it's optional, adding social sharing images is a good way to influence how social posts linking to your content look, even if the page you're sharing doesn't include images.
There are two types of social sharing images:
- Social Sharing Logo - Represents your whole site.
- Alternate Social Sharing Image - Represents individual pages. Not currently available for collection items (such as blog posts or individual product items).
To learn how we help social networks surface the right image to display depending on the link you're sharing, visit Which images display in social posts.
Before you begin
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.
