Irene created the topic: Open Graph image on Facebook
I have been using the free version of AutoTweet NG but I encounter some a problem lately and I was wondering if the paid version could help me solving the following issue. The last few days the image displayed in FB posts is the wrong one. I would like to use the intro image but what I get is the first banner image of the site. I checked my page at FB debugger and got the warning "The 'og:description' property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags."
I would really appreciate to know how could I solve the trouble mentioned above.

Hi Irene, Thanks for contacting us!
Yes, you are right.
On July 18th, 2017, Facebook changed how the picture field is loaded. Since this date, when you share a link with Facebook API, the value of picture, name, caption, thumbnail, description is taken from the OpenGraph Tags. This change has already been reported as bug, for more information: On sharing a URL the picture, name, caption, thumbnail and description set manually is ignored
We have updated our FAQs to reflect the change. For more information:
