I went to share an article on Facebook – and it didn't load in an Opengraph Image. I was assuming it would pull in the "Featured Image" ? I tried to find out how to change this but could only find information on adding in a default Opengraph image via the Customize section. This is not good enough – I'd like it to display the Featured Image each time an article is shared on social media.
Hi Matthew,The featured image does have a priority over the default Open Graph image you upload. The image you upload as default OG image via customizer will be pulled only in case a post has no featured image, or if something went wrong with it. In your case, the reason turns out to be the second one.After a few tests we noticed that some of your posts have a featured image that is too small for sharing on social networks such as Facebook. These two, for example:http://funemployed.life/2017/02/23/how-to-get-over-the-anxiety-of-creating-online/http://funemployed.life/2017/02/22/how-to-handle-tax-and-all-the-boring-stuff-when-youre-funemployed/will fail,while these two:http://funemployed.life/2017/02/22/grab-some-inspiration-from-5-of-our-favourite-vloggers/http://funemployed.life/2017/02/22/mastering-your-summer-work-setup/will grab the image properly.Please take a look at this blog post to get a better insight in what are the most optimal image sizes for social media: https://blog.bufferapp.com/ideal-image-sizes-social-media-postsBest,NordWood
