You do not see the (preview) image when sharing a website in Facebook?

If you share your website link on Facebook, it may happen that no picture appears or an image you do not want appears.

In the following steps, you’ll learn how to change the image for the shared link.

An example of a malfunctioning image problem:

1. Select an image

Select the image you want to see in the shared link. The image size should not exceed 8 MB.
You can get free pictures by using a free photo services such as https://pixabay.com or https://www.pexels.com/

2. Upload image to get URL address

If you already have a picture you want to see when sharing a particular page, you can now upload it to the online store (free of charge) to get a URL. Click here to upload the image: https://imgur.com/upload

Then right-click the image and copy the image URL.

3. Edit HTML code (import of URL address of image)

Insert the URL of your image into the code. Insert the URL of the image instead of “URL-ADDRESS“.

 

4. Enter the code into the HTML header of the page.

In the top bar of the editor, click on “Pages” – “Select the page where you want to change the sharing image” – “SEO page settings” and “HTML header code“. Paste the code and publish the changes.

TIP: If you have Premium Services (Standard or Profi) purchased with Webnode, you can embed HTML code on all pages of the site. This will mean that the same picture is displayed when you share a site (which page does not matter) on your site.
Click “Settings” – “Website Settings” – “HTML Site Header” at the top bar of the editor and paste the code and save it.

5. Continue to Facebook Sharing Debugger

On the Sharing Debugger page, enter the URL of your site and continue with “Debug“. Below is a preview of a shared link on the page. If the image has not been updated, use the “Scrape again” option.

Done: When you now share your website, an image will be OK 🙂

Warning: When you upload an image to a storage, make sure the image has no spaces in the name. Remove the spaces and replace it with a dash.

 

If you upload a picture with a space in the title, for example, under the name “My Logo” Facebook will not take your picture and it will not work.

 

So when you upload a picture, rename it, for example. tomy-logo“.

Do you also need to change the text in the link thumbnail?
