Adding Images for Social Media Posts
You can set images for your posts on Facebook and LinkedIn through Newsroom.
1. Facebook posts
When you release a news item on Facebook, an image will be included along with your post. Here are the images that will appear according to your post’s source or link:
a. YouTube – the first image of the video thumb
b. Manual upload – the featured image you uploaded
c. ASX announcement – the image of the PDF file’s first page
d. WordPress – the featured image you set in WordPress
e. Shopify – the featured image you selected in Shopify
f. LinkedIn – the featured image of the news item
2. LinkedIn posts
LinkedIn will usually opt to use an image from your link and ignore any image you upload, should you want a different one. For example, if you upload a featured image in YouTube, LinkedIn will just display a YouTube frame and disregard your uploaded featured image.
However, LinkedIn will show your featured images for ASX Announcements and tweets on Twitter.
Overriding the set image -
At pending stage:
To override the default image of a Pending announcement generated by Newsroom, go to IRM Newsroom>Pending>Edit and upload a Featured Image prior to releasing the announcement.
To edit Released announcements, go to IRM Newsroom>Released>Edit>upload Featured Image and click save. After uploading the featured image, you may Re-release the announcement to the desired distribution (web, email or social media).
