    How can I change the preview image on Facebook for a Jotform Link - the current image isn't suitable and I can't locate where to change it from?

    Hi! I believe that you're referring to this form:

    There is no option to select a post image when you're sharing a URL via Facebook messages. There are specific tags that FB asks Developers to use to tell their crawler which image to use for the post. If these tags aren't implemented on a web page, then in most cases FB picks the first image found on the page as the post image. As far as I can see, Jotform has not implemented FB Open Graph tag for the image, so the first found image should be picked by FB.

    I tried sharing this form on my FB account via messages and I see the form header as the post image (screenshot attached for your reference).

    Can you please retry. Let us know if it still displays differently for you.
