#1019 closed defect (fixed)

Jetpack Sharing module passes random image to Facebook

Reported by: pixolin Owned by: iandunn
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords: has-patch


We set our website for WordCamp Cologne https://cologne.wordcamp.org/2015/ to automatically share posts on Facebook via Jetpack's Sharing module.

If we don't provide a featured image, a random image is passed instead. In our case a sponsor logo was picked randomly which gives extra promotion to that particular sponsor and therefor is an unwanted side effect.

Per Slack discussion, the current logo is too small.

meta-1019.patch changes it to wordpress-bg-medblue.png, which is 1200x630 and is also used when sharing blog posts from wordpress.org/news/.

Jetpack Publicize Tweaks: Switch to a larger default image.

The previous image's dimensions were too small, and Facebook was ignoring it.
