Thumbnails on social media?

I would like an image used in my blog post to appear when I share the post on Twitter, or Facebook.

You will need to edit your template's <head> section in the head.html template file. Add the following:

{{#entry}}
<meta property="og:title" content="{{title}}">
<meta property="og:description" content="{{summary}}">
{{#thumbnail.large}}
<meta property="og:image" content="{{{url}}}">
{{/thumbnail.large}}
<meta property="og:url" content="{{{absoluteURL}}}">
<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image">
{{/entry}}
