How do I customize previews when sharing pages on Facebook or Twitter?

Whenever you a share a page of your site on Facebook or Twitter, the social media will pull images/title/description to populate a preview of your page within the social platform.

2. You will be taken to a list of all your Pages, enter the page that you wish to customize:
