Hi – thanks for posting the question.

You can change the social media image, aka Open Graph (OG) image and named  as $og_image on Branch links in 3 ways:

  1. Change it globally (i.e default for all links created) at Branch Dashboard->Settings->Link->Social Media Description
  2. If the link is created from the Marketing section on the Branch Dashboard, you can click on Edit link and then change it from Configuration Options->Social Media
  3. Change the link property by using our edit link HTTP API documented here

Note that once you update the link, you might need to run it through the FB OG Debugger tool for Facebook to fetch the updated OG information.

Let me know if you have more questions. Thanks!
