Comeet allows you to upload images that are shared on social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. You can upload images for the company’s logo and social images for positions.

Image size

Each social network sets different requirements for the size of images. For best results, we suggest you abide by the following guidelines.

  • Minimum image dimensions: 1200 (w) x 630 (h) pixels
  • Max file size: 5 MB
  • Ratio: 1.91:1

Image is not shown on social media

See how to troubleshoot a case where the image is not shown according to the type of careers website that your company is using. If you're facing a case where the image is not updated then see the next section on Updating images.

Comeet's hosted website

Comeet takes care of providing the necessary details to social media crawlers. Note that it takes up to 30 minutes for changes to take affect.

Using Comeet's WordPress plugin

Make sure you're using the latest version of the Comeet plugin for WordPress. The plugin takes care of adding social information to every page, so positions look their best when shared on Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media.
If you're using a plugin to manage sharing on your website then we recommend working with YOAST. It is a WordPress plugin for sharing and SEO and it is fully compatible with the Comeet plugin for WordPress.

Using a custom careers website

Check with your web developer that social meta tags (ie. og:image) are included in the <head> section of the position pages when they are read by social media crawlers. For more information visit the sharing best practices by Facebook and LinkedIn.

Updating images

When replacing an existing image, a former version of the image may still be shown when sharing on social networks.

Using a custom careers website

If your company uses a custom careers website that is integrated with Comeet, it may be using a caching mechanism to handle the load of visitors on the website. This means that changes to the positions data in Comeet are not reflected immediately on the company’s website. Cached versions are usually refreshed every 30 minutes, but – to know for certain – be sure to check with your web developers who built your website.

Sharing on LinkedIn

  • Make sure that the new image complies with the required image size as listed above (even if the former image didn’t).
  • LinkedIn caches information for 7 days, including images. To see the updated version of the image it is necessary to post the page on LinkedIn again after this time period has passed.

See sharing best practices by LinkedIn.

Sharing on Facebook

Facebook keeps a cached version of every page after it is shared on Facebook for the first time. Facebook allows to refresh the cached content of a page by following these steps:

  1. Visit this page.
  2. Paste the page URL and click “Debug”.
  3. Click on the button “Scrape again”. A few clicks may be required until the updated image is shown.
