Trying a couple of images that don’t quite fit the restrictions in the Open Graph protocol
- Less than 50px wide, but at least 50 pixels deep
- Less than 50px high, but at least 50 pixels wide
- Aspect ratio > 3:1 (at least 50px in each but too wide – e.g. 151px x 50px)
Why did I do this?
The Open Graph protocol defines four required properties:
og:title – The title of your object as it should appear within the graph, e.g., “The Rock”. og:type – The type of your object, e.g., “movie”. See the complete list of supported types. og:image – An image URL which should represent your object within the graph. The image must be at least 50px by 50px and have a maximum aspect ratio of 3:1. We support PNG, JPEG and GIF formats. You may include multiple og:image tags to associate multiple images with your page. og:url – The canonical URL of your object that will be used as its permanent ID in the graph, e.g., http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117500/.
So I just put 2 and 2 together regarding the og:image stuff.
How close was I?
I was right about 1., 2. and 3. – none of them were selected.
