When I post a link to my post on G+ it only uses a small imagine, yet when I post other people’s blog posts it shows a full sized picture. I have thus ruled out the issue as a G+ setting. What determines which photo is used when I share my post? I need it to be a large image.
Thanks in advance.July 22, 2014 at 11:39 pm #41275
@ToddWilliam: Can you check in the size of your featured image. Can you post in your site URL so that I can check in.July 23, 2014 at 7:12 am #41300July 23, 2014 at 7:14 am #41301
One other thing. I also use this image on my slider (the pic with the bike) and it uses a big version. For whatever reason the link is associated with a tiny version of this image.

@ToddWilliam: Have you install any plugin for Facebook like. As when I check in your site source. I found the following code.
<!-- Facebook Like Thumbnail --> <link rel="image_src" href="http://www.todd-william.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Ambition.jpg" /> <!-- End Facebook Like Thumbnail -->
This is the code that is calling for small image. For Social Image, you can text with this URL https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/
So, You need to disable that plugin which is calling that code and you can activate any other social plugin like Jetpack or WordPress SEO by Yoast, which will help you to setup open graph images.July 24, 2014 at 12:54 pm #41369
I disabled the only relevant plugin I could find and now when I share the post it actually selects the second image in the post instead of my featured image.I can’t figure out why it would now possibly choose the second image.
I’m still referring to this post: http://www.todd-william.com/ten-reasons-why/July 25, 2014 at 12:41 am #41392
@ToddWilliam: I already told you that there is plugin which is calling that image. Ok I found it’s the plugin “Add Twitter, Facebook Like, Google plus one Social share”.July 25, 2014 at 8:42 pm #41447
OK I got it figured out. Thanks so much for the help.
