It does not work with K2, Zoo.
FACEBOOK REQUIREMENTS FOR IMAGES
The image must be at least 50x50 px (though minimum 200x200 px and maximum 1500x1500 px is preferred) and have a maximum aspect ratio of 3:1. Maximum image size is 5MB. We support PNG, JPEG and GIF formats. Facebook scrapes your page every 24 hours to ensure the properties are up to date.
Also, the dev is very helpful; I had an issue with getting FB to recognise the og:image size which was caused by an article on my site and not the plugin. The dev went out of his way to help me get to the bottom of it and my share and like buttons are perfectly tamed!
Well worth the low cost.
1. It works with php allow_url_fopen = off
2. It can use joomlas "Intro image" or "Full article image" for the OG image tag.
I do not like that the plugin name and branding is added as a comment in the source code for the web site though. For a paid plugin this should be avoided.
Would be nice if it could support twitter card tags as well.
This comment is only the name of plugin used by our support for checking if open graph tags on customer site are generated by our plugin or some another. Our branding does not have any link-back, is not being indexed by search-bots and does not display to your site visitors. It does not have any influence on your site. But if you do not like to have a comment with plugin name then you can easily remove one line from source code.
