So I never really used the social side of the plugin until today really.  I’m still trying to learn the seo settings so I figured it’d just confuse me more.  But since G+’s new update with the big images I thought I’d start trying to use it.  

I setup a featured image different from what can be seen on the post itself, in hopes that aio’s social would propagate that image when the post was shared.  However it doesn’t seem to be doing that.  The featured image did propagate when I shared to pinterest but not on Facebook, or G+.

What could I be doing wrong here?

Hi Chris,

In order for the Featured Image of a post to appear when your post is shared you’ll have to select Featured Image from the Select OG:Image Source dropdown menu in the Social Meta options.

Thanks,

Nina

Thanks Nina, that worked but it didn’t display it in its full size.  Is there way to do that?  ( I did specify the size on the individual post)

Hi Chris,

I’ve just tested your link in Facebook and the image seems to be appearing fine.  Facebook will crop the picture to a square if it’s large enough so that it looks best in the sharing box, that is possibly what’s happening here.  If you think that’s not it, take a screenshot of how the sharing box looks when you share that link to Facebook and we can take a look at it for you.

Thanks,

Nina

Yes, Nina you’re right but I somehow edited out the important part of my last reply.  

I meant to say, ‘It’s not displaying its full size in Google+.’  Is there anyway to fix that?

Thanks for you help btw
