Here's the Story
The Open Graph Protocol is a standard that Facebook created to standardize how websites describe themselves (through metadata). The great news is the standard is very clearly documented. The bad news is many websites aren't correctly configuring the image for open graph. So these platforms like Facebook will take their best guess at finding an image, it's usually not the one you want and it will always be zoomed in to a certain width.
