Sharing to Facebook

Changes made to OpenScholar's meta tags, specifically the height and width meta tags for images, will now allow link previews to appear in place of a URL when posting on Facebook.

This change only applies to images appearing in people profiles, publications, and news items.

As a result, when sharing one of these content types containing an image, the link preview option will appear on Facebook.

Anytime you post a profile, news item, or publication link to Facebook the link preview will appear as:

news link

Link previews are eye-catching and a great way to engage your social media audience with your OpenScholar website.
