Although each social platform is different, here is our methodology behind the thumbnail generating when you share a Behance link.
- If you are sharing a project page, the image you will see is the cover image for that project.*
- If you are sharing your profile page (most likely what your URL lands on first) you will see your profile photo and your "About" section.
*The exception to this is on Facebook. Due to Facebook's content standards, the data Facebook scrubs to generate the post will reflect the first image of the project instead of the cover image. Facebook wants photos that are 600px by 315px and cover photos are only 404px by 336px.
If you would like, a workaround would be to edit your project so that you can set your cover image as your first image. This way, it will be the photo that will be the thumbnail on Facebook.
If you really do not want your cover image to be the first image in your project (or in your project at all) to accomplish the first workaround, there are further steps you can take:
1. Edit your project so that your cover image of choice is the first image in your project. Save this change.
2. Go to your profile, and open up that project. Double check that your cover image of choice is loaded as the first image. You may have to refresh the page.
3. Copy the project page link and share in a Facebook post as normal. Check that the thumbnail that generates is the image you want before officially posting.
4. Go back to Behance, and edit that project again and move the cover image back to its proper place in the project, or remove it if you do not want it there at all.
If you are still having trouble with the thumbnail that is generated on Facebook, it could be that the image is cached. To get Facebook up to speed with your portfolio changes, use the link debugger here: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ and then try sharing that link.
