When we try to share our email newsletter with LinkedIn, the logo appear really large and blurry -- goes off the page. What am I doing wrong? None of the other social channels do this.
Thank you for reaching out to the Community! Try using a photo that's uploaded into the library at exactly 475x247 and it should post correctly. Thanks!
I think the problem is that the share post is pulling the long, LinkedIn cover image rather than the smaller profile company logo image (300x300) to the left -which it should be pulling from. Can I designate the right LinkedIn image for the social share?
Can you send us a screenshot of this image so we can see it? You will only be able to choose which image from your library can be used for these posts.
Thanks for sticking in there with me. To be clear, I am not choosing any images. This is what happens when, as if one of my contacts, I click a social share button in my email newsletter. With the exception of my newsletter masthead and the logo in the footer, there are no images in the newsletter. I'm attaching 3 screenshots showing what I get when I click the social share buttons -- one for each channel including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
In your case, I'd advise reaching out to LinkIn's support to see if they can offer any insight on why their program is trying to grab that logo when you share your link.
I didn't need the image, is there any way I can turn if off -- keep Constant Contact from automatically loading it when sharing link?
So LinkedIn by default will try to generate a banner, similar to how Facebook and other social platforms will when a link is included in a post that's otherwise just text. To mitigate this, either add an image to be uploaded alongside the text, or simply click Remove URL Preview under the text block.
If you want the preview visible on other pages, and just want to turn it off for a specific one, you can create variations of a post and remove the preview on each page individually.
Sorry, I wasn't finished writing when I sent that last reply. Here's what I meant to ask: I don't need an image at all. Is there to turn it off -- to keep Constant Contact from automatically loading it in the post when someone tries to share a link?
