Overview

When your ambassadors share their referral link to social media sites via the portal share module or Refer-a-Friend module, an image will be pulled into the post automatically. If you want to set or change the image that is shared, you’ll need to utilize open graph meta tags on your site. 

 

How do I set the image that is shared?

Using meta tags, you can tag the image you want pulled into various social sites. An example of how you can tag your image is included below, you will need to replace “https://pathtoyourimage.jpg” with a link to your desired image.

Facebook

<!-- 1200x1200 Image for Facebook -->
<meta property="og:image" content="https://pathtoyourimage.jpg" />
<meta property="og:image:width" content="1200" />
<meta property="og:image:height" content="1200" />

LinkedIn

<!-- 400x400 Image for Linkedin -->
<meta property="og:image" content="https://pathtoyourimage.jpg" />
<meta property="og:image:width" content="400" />
<meta property="og:image:height" content="400" />

Twitter

<meta name="twitter:image" content="https://pathtoyourimage.jpg" />
