Facebook Share Multiple Images (og:image tags)

Add Multiple Images to Facebook Share Link

You might be wondering how Facebook choses which thumbnail images to show when someone shares a link on Facebook. It might seem random, but there is a way for you to control which images Facebook uses.

Facebook’s Open Graph allows you to add <meta> tags to the <head> section of your site. One of these <meta> tags is the og:image tag. It will look something like this:

<meta property='og:image' content='http://www.domain.com/path/to/image.jpg' />

It is possible to add multiple og:image tags to a page. For each og:image tag you add, Facebook will add that image to the list of available thumbnails to use each time the page is shared.
