How can I change the thumbnail image?

When I post this link on LinkedIn the thumbnail image on LinkedIn is my thumbnail photo towards the bottom left. I don’t like this and want the thumbnail image to be the top section. How to change this?

Hi @gtrman97

Not sure exactly how LinkedIn handle things, but likely using Open Graph meta tags will possibly fix the issue. Similar thing exists for twitter too

So I will have to change my meta tags in my html project file to change it?


Here’s a post I just found on LinkedIn about this very subject

Ok well I added this line with url in the content property but I still get the same snapshot as before on LinkedIn:

<meta prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns#" property="og:image" content="https://images.pexels.com/photos/401213/pexels-photo-401213.jpeg?auto=compress&cs=tinysrgb&dpr=3&h=750&w=1260" />

I see the correct thing:

If you’re still facing problems, I suppose you should ask LinkedIn for help.
