    Hello,

    I'm new to working with Wordpress templates so forgive me if this is a silly question.
    Every time I link to my website externally (lets say from facebook for example) the image that shows is my logo. I want to get rid of that logo. Is there a way to pick what the image in the preview will be? Or at least change it from that logo?

    Hello Tegan Wylie,

    This is not really a WP question but it affects all websites missing the Open Grah tags :)
    What you can do to get this working is installing a plugin that manages the Open Graph tags for facebook to read.

    This is the plugin I recommend: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/

    Install it and your site pages should properly show the featured image on facebook.

    Thanks!
