Description (last modified by DrewAPicture)

I've noticed that when sharing blog posts from wp.org/news/, Facebook finds the blank.jpg image and pairs that with the post, which isn't great. Can we instead link to an image of the WordPress.org logo?

Okay, as per the arguments put forth in #415, I changed the default og:image to a very large logo.

I'm concerned, however, that it looks bloody stupid as a result.

According to Facebook, we need an image that is 1200x630. Anybody feel like making an appropriate one for us?

I like it. We'll go with the third option for now, and leave the other two available for changing it up if desired.
