Update Blog2Social to version 5.9 to change the image of your link posts for LinkedIn, XING, Twitter, and Facebook, and pre-format your posts with post templates.
Change the Image for Link Posts on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and XING (Premium Pro)
Select individual images for your link posts on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or XING with Blog2Social. To change the image for link posts, Blog2Social will automatically set the image you choose as the new Open Graph image tag (og:image) in your blog post meta data.
>>What are open graph tags and what do I use them for?
Open Graph (og) tags are written into the source code of your website. All networks that support the link post format (except Twitter, as it will preferably use Twitter Card tags) will read the same Open Graph tags to display the link preview. If you make any changes to the og tags, these changes will be altered in your source code, which means the changes apply to every network that displays link previews based on og tags.
New Format Options for Post Templates & Post Templates for XING (Pages & Groups) (Premium Pro)
Just like punctuation, formatting often seems unnecessary in times of text messages and chats. If you try to read a bigger paragraph, however, missing punctuation or formatting, resulting in a so-called wall of text, can make this task unnecessarily difficult.
One of the main reasons we use social media is to spread a message and reach as many people as possible, which is why we should make sure our message is easily digestible. A few line breaks can make a huge difference!
Use post templates to pre-format your social media posts for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and XING and save valuable time while scheduling. With Blog2Social 5.9, you can now add line breaks directly to your post templates to further customize the formatting style of your message.
You want to start with your hashtags, then a line break and then your post content? Sure! You want more space between your title and content and even more line breaks before your hashtags at the end? You can absolutely do this. Pre format your social media posts with post templates however you like.
Furthermore, version 5.9 also adds post templates for XING pages and groups!
