How Do I Change the Picture That Displays When I Share My Website Link on Wix?

Last updated on January 7, 2023 @ 3:20 am

When you share your site’s link on social media, a preview of your site appears. This is called a social thumbnail.

You can change the social thumbnail image and add a description for each page of your site. To do this, go to Settings in your site’s dashboard, click Site Name and Meta Tags, and scroll down to the Social Thumbnail section.

The social thumbnail image is the image that displays when you share your site’s link on social media. You can add or change this image for each page of your site.

To change the social thumbnail image:
1. Go to Settings in your site’s dashboard. Or the Marketing & SEO menu.

2. Click Site Name and Meta Tags. This is under the SEO tools.

3. Scroll down to the Social Thumbnail section. Then click Edit by Page to customize each page’s social share details.

PRO TIP: If you are using the Wix platform to create a website, be aware that changing the picture that displays when you share your website link may result in broken links. It is best to leave the default image in place unless you are absolutely sure you know what you are doing.

4. Click the image icon next to the page you want to update.

5. Select or upload an image from your computer. The recommended size for social thumbnail images is 1200×627 pixels.
6. Click Save.

To add or edit a description:
1. Scroll down to the Social Thumbnail section.

2. Under “Description,” click the text box and enter a description for the page. Keep it under 300 characters.
