OG Image reads the thumbnail

Featured Lock Resolved Bug
When inserting an Open Graph image through page options Facebook detects the thumbnail not the actual image itself.

Hi,
I checked SPPB 3, and OG image is set as it should be :

<meta content="http://domain.com/images/chosen.jpg" property="og:image" />


Sorry, but we cannot change behavior of Facebook bot is it's too stupid to recognize image set according to Facebook manual.

I am having a similar issue. I have told PageBuilder the correct graphic I want to use but it keeps putting in the thumbnail instead. I want Facebook to pick up the larger image to make a wide image post. PageBuilder, as you can see, tells it to pick the thumbnail.


<meta content="http://www.inventright.com/images/2017/12/08/_spmedia_thumbs/osi-fb-graphic3.jpg" property="og:image" />


Any idea how to tell PageBuilder to list the full size graphic as the og:image?
Thanks!

But you choose OG image manually here (screenshot) for each Page separately.
So select bigger image.

Yes, I selected the image there but it puts in the Thumbnail (see the code I posted above). I found a way around it with another extension that puts in the tags for me. I would however like to just do it in PageBuilder.

We may consider changes, but not in December.

Oh I see it defaults to the thumbnail. Great. Ok. Yes please put that as a future change. That would be helpful. Once I was able to put the right graphic in with the other extension It worked fine. See attachment.

It's not really a change, but a bug fix. Paul you provided an example of what it should do, but it doesn't. Facebook is only detecting what the template is outputting.
I added the image as you described, but for some reason the output keeps reverting to the thumbnail directory.

I've had to resort to using a 3rd party plugin to resolve the issue for now..

I can confirm, it's issue.
I will ask for update/fix
