How To Add & Update Social Image Previews In WordPress

One question we’re asked a lot is, “How do I change the preview image for my blog post when I’m sharing it on Facebook or Twitter?” In some cases, people changed their mind or want to update the existing image and/or text description. In other cases, it may be that no image shows at all.

When you publish your own content on your website, it’s automatically protected by copyright law.

You may embed content where the creator has allowed it, for example embedding someone else’s YouTube video or Instagram image on your website using the embed code provided by the social network (which includes credit and links).

In this post, we look at some ways you can make it harder for thieves to steal your content, and what you can do about it if it does happen.
