Customize Shared Social Media Links for Square Online

When someone shares a link to your Square Online site on Facebook or Twitter, the appearance of the link is controlled by a set of meta tags known as Open Graph. You can change the image and text that appear when a page of your site is shared using the social settings in the Square Online site editor.

Note: Changes to social media previews and SEO information can take time to show up in social media and search engine results.

Individual Pages

You'll be able to add a custom image that will be shown when the page is shared on Facebook or Twitter. Choose and upload an image from your device, or simply drag an image file directly into the box to start uploading.

Review the social preview to check it out after adding your image. If you want to remove the image or upload a different one, use the Delete button to remove your image and upload a new one using the same method.
