When I post the link of my site on facebook, the image added was 2 images, logo and other one. Facebook displayed the first ones. So I needed to add in default_head_block.xml file (app/design/frontend/Venustheme/kasitoo/Magento_Theme/layout)

the following code:

<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
<meta property="og:title" content="Sitename" />
<meta property="og:description" content="description site lorem ipsum" />
<meta property="og:url" content="http://sitename.ro/" />
<meta property="og:site_name" content="MyOrganic" />
<meta property="og:image" content="http://sitename/pub/media/facebook.jpg" />

The problem is that this overrides the meta open graphs from single product page. That are located in

general.phtml in vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/frontend/templates/product/view/opengraph

<meta property="og:type" content="og:product" />
<meta property="og:title" content="<?php echo $block->escapeHtml($block->getProduct()->getName()); ?>" />
<meta property="og:image" content="<?php echo $block->escapeUrl($block->getImage($block->getProduct(), 'product_base_image')->getImageUrl()); ?>" />
<meta property="og:description" content="<?php echo $block->escapeHtml($block->getProduct()->getShortDescription()); ?>" />
<meta property="og:url" content="<?php echo $block->escapeUrl($block->getProduct()->getProductUrl()); ?>" />
<?php if ($priceAmount = $block->getProduct()->getFinalPrice()):?>
    <meta property="product:price:amount" content="<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $priceAmount; ?>"/>
    <?php echo $block->getChildHtml('meta.currency'); ?>
<?php endif;?>

Where should I add the metas for homepage, in order to work properly the metas for single product pages??

Meta tags can be added to a cms_index_index.xml layout file the same way as you added them to the default_head_block.xml file and they will then only apply on the homepage.

Example -

default_head_block.xml -

    <meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/DEFAULTIMAGE.png" />

cms_index_index.xml -

    <meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/HOMEPAGEIMAGE.png" />

Will result in the og:image property being DEFAULTIMAGE.png on every page without an image explicitly set, and HOMEPAGEIMAGE.png on the home page.

On my projects, I use Magento 2 Open Graph by Magefan. This module allows to manage OG tags for:

  • Homepage
  • Product
  • Any CMS Page
  • Catalog Category
  • Blog Homepage
  • Blog Category
  • Blog Post

So using Magento 2 admin panel I can upload a new OG image at any time as well as change the OG description or title.
