Wix Social Share Image: How to change Facebook sharing image on Wix Websites

As a Wix Designer, many of my clients ask this question after I design their Wix websites: How do I change my Wix Social Share Image? The Social Share image in Wix is the image that Facebook and other social media sites will show when you share a URL to your website. Wix allows you to customize the social share image on each page of your Wix website, as well as your blog posts. Here's how:

Here's a screenshot of where a page's Social Share image can be updated in Wix:

Ideal size for Social Share images:

The Facebook recommended image size for sharing images and sharing links with an image is 1,200 x 630 pixels. Whether you're sharing landscape, portrait, or square images, Facebook will resize it to 500 pixels wide and scale the height accordingly.

Facebook Debugger:

First be sure to Publish your website after making any social share image updates to make sure the new images on your site are live. After you publish your website with the new social share images added, Facebook MAY still show your older social share image when testing out posting a link, this is because Facebook stores/caches these images in it's system. To fix this, use Facebook's debug tool, which allows you to re-Scrape the image until it pulls the newest one. Sometimes this takes a few clicks on the "Scrape Again" button to get the newest image to load, so keep clicking on "Scrape Again" until it shows the new image. Here's the link to the Facebook debugger: developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ Happy Wixing!
