This is a simple guide about how you can create clickable social cards on social media for your links.

Here is an example how clickable social cards look on Facebook, X (Twitter) and Threads.

Example of social cards on Facebook, X (Twitter) and Threads


All you need to do is to add the following code to your <head> section for every page you want to target.

<!-- For Facebook, LinkedIn and other platforms -->
<meta property="og:title" content="YOUR_PAGE_TITLE" />
<meta property="og:site_name" content="YOUR_SITE_NAME" />
<meta property="og:url" content="YOUR_PAGE_URL" />
<meta property="og:description" content="YOUR_PAGE_DESCRIPTION" />
<meta property="og:type" content="article" />
<meta property="og:image" content="YOUR_1200x630_IMAGE">

<!-- For Twitter -->
<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image" />
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@YOUR_TWITTER_USERNAME" />
<meta name="twitter:creator" content="@YOUR_TWITTER_USERNAME" />
<meta name="twitter:title" content="YOUR_PAGE_TITLE" />
<meta name="twitter:description" content="YOUR_PAGE_DESCRIPTION" />
<meta name="twitter:image" content="YOUR_1200x630_IMAGE">

Of course, you need to change the YOUR_ values with your own values.

The image

The most important thing about these values is the image. If you want a big beautiful image for your link, we recommend to use an image with a resolution of 1200px x 630px.
