The images that FaceBook is pulling through from our Wordpress site are the wrong ones - when we share a link from our blog - how do we tell Facebook which image we want it to use when it displays on FB?

Hello Jilian Hansen,

Unfortunately you cant tell to Facebook to select desired display images, FB automatically fetches according to program coded

With Google Plus whereas you can select clicking on arrow buttons Left < and right >

Thanks Alicia - will take a look.

I am interested in the underling Raw mechanism for doing this but can examine how Yoast does it if no other information is forthcoming.

Be sure using any plugin,
it should not fetch your personal credentials or any secured information,

These third party free plugins fetches information and sell to other third party hackers

You must know What is Antivirus - Antivirus companies are hackers actually and they have direct contact with hackers and malware, adware developers or simply you can say they create Virus and they provide Antivirus - They create Problem and They Provide Solution

If you going to use any third party plugin then dont use any secured information on same browser on which plugins installed
