Is 1200 x 630px the holy grail?

We finally added an open graph image on last week's unauthorized and rum-fueled treasure hunt, so the URL looks nice when shared on social media.

We ended up being super confused by the size requirements, but 1200 x 630px seems to be the holy grail of these images. The size works across Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.

Let me know if I am wrong, please!

Both LinkedIn and Facebook require a meta tag with property set to og-image:

<meta property="og:image" content={imageUrl} />

While Twitter requires a meta tag with name set to twitter:image in addition to information about the style of the "sharing card":

<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image" />
<meta name="twitter:image" content={imageUrl} />


All the best,
Queen Raae
