    Images when links shared on Social Media

    Hi, I've just started managing an Umbraco website and when you share links to individual pages on social media platforms the image on that specific page is not the image that comes across. Every page comes up with the same image which I'm not sure where it sits on our website. How can I make it so the images attached to each page is what is shared on social media? I hope this makes sense! Thanks

    Hi Sarah and welcome to the Umbraco forum :)

    You will probably need to get in touch with the developers of your site and have a chat with them about it since it sounds like the image to be used has been hardcoded in the HTML somewhere and is not something that you can currently control - Unless they have added some settings for dealing with this in something like a "SEO" tab or maybe even in the "Properties" tab (Depending on, which version of Umbraco you're using).

    You will need to ask them how you can handle open graph data, which is the protocol Facebook and others are using - More info about it here http://ogp.me/ and I think that for Twitter it's "cards" that they should use https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/optimize-with-cards/guides/getting-started.html

    I hope this helps a little!

    /Jan
