I have seen quite a few Facebook posts lately where people have posted links that have no images and just website name. 

You can change this, and it’s easy! 

Here a step by step for the main platforms WordPress, Wix, Squarespace and Weebly. 

For all of them you can set a site wide image and an individual page image too. I recommend setting a site wide image first, then you always have an image displayed incase you forget to set it for new pages. 

WordPress

Add social share image per page
>Home Menu
>Pages
>Edit page
>Set featured image bottom left sidebar
>Save

Using SEO plugins – All in One SEO and Yoast

>Add social meta
>All pages
>Edit Page
>Scroll to SEO Area
>Social Settings Tab
>Upload image
>Edit Text to display

Add social share image for your whole site:

>SEO plugin
>Social meta
>Upload default image

SquareSpace


Add social share image for your whole site:

>Home Menu
>Design
>Logo & Title
>Scroll down to Social Sharing Logo
>Upload Image
>Save

Add social share image per page
>Home Menu
>Pages
>Page settings
>Social Tab
>Upload Image
>Save

Wix


Add social share image per page
>Menus & Pages
>The relevant page
>Show More icon
>Social Share
>Upload Image
>Select an image
>Add to Page

Add social share image for your whole site:
>Settings
>Social on the left
>Upload Image
>Apply
>Publish

Weebly

Weebly simply grabs the first image displayed on the page. This does not count background images. This is not currently editable.

Test it!

To check everything is set up right and FB is receiving updated info go here to debug the page to see  what will come up on your Facebook post. 

You can apply this to blog posts as well as pages.

AND remember – optimse any uploaded images!
