Open Graph image on Facebook

1 year 2 months ago #10463 by Irene
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.
Thank you

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 developers.facebook.com/bugs/165375244006359/

We have updated our FAQs to reflect the change. For more information:

To sum up: In the past, Open Graph tags was a good practice to guide how pages were shared from your site. Now, it's necessary to implement Open Graph tags when Facebook does not load the right image.

We are monitoring if Facebook "fixes" this definition since several developers (11) are reporting this change as a bug. At this point, Facebook has closed all bugs, and the new definition is final.

From our side, we are also looking into the possibility of submitting the image with a different method and/or improving how the Open Graph tag plugin works.

Please let us know if you have any other question and we will be happy to help out.

Best Regards,
