Customize Previews when Sharing Pages (Facebook or Twitter)

Whenever you share a page of your site on Facebook or Twitter, the social platform will pull data from your page to populate a preview within the platform. You aren't required to update the data as it is populated automatically for you, but if you wish to customize it, follow the steps in this article.

1. Click on the Content tab in the gray navigation bar, and click into the page you wish to customize.

2. In the right-hand sidebar, select the SEO & Sharing header to open the panel.
