Using Social Previews extension

Before you publish your new post or page, you can use the Social Previews extension to preview what it will look like on search engines and social media. To do so, click the Jetpack icon in the top right corner of the editor (it looks like a lightning bolt) and look for the Social Previews section. Click the Preview button to open the Social Previews modal.

The preview doesn’t exactly match what was shown on social media

As Google, Facebook, and Twitter keep updating the layout of their previews, our Social Previews will always only approximate the real content.

If you’re having any trouble with the Social Preview feature, please visit our contact support page for information on how to get support.

Configuring the widget

Once you add the widget to your sidebar, for each social media account you want to add, click on ‘Add an Icon’ and then enter the URL for the social media account.

Currently supported social networks include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, GitHub, YouTube, Vimeo, WordPress.org, Flickr, Apple Music and Stack Overflow.


I don’t like the size of the icons! How do I change that?
Easy! Using Jetpack’s Custom CSS Editor, you can add this CSS code to adjust the size of those icons to your preferred size.

.jetpack_widget_social_icons ul.size-medium a {
height: 20px;
width: 20px;

The default size of the Social Media icons is 32px, but you can adjust that to the size of your choosing.
