Description

Whenever the Haiku website is shared on social media,the transparent logo is taken for the link image. It often looks terrible and on a white background it can't even be seen.

Adding an opengraph meta property should instruct all social media websites to use the right image. The code below would use the square logo and should be inserted into the meta of field under <head> :

 <meta property="og:image" content="https://cgit.haiku-os.org/haiku/plain/data/artwork/HAIKU%20square%20-%20white%20on%20blue.png"/>

I could throw a PR together for this probably fairly easily, but would be nice to have a way to test. What social media sites can this be tested with?

You can probably use the @haikuOS Twitter logo instead of the one linked in the ticket (pretty sure it's higher res). Facebook and Twitter are the two sites that really use it, I think .

Twitter logo is just blown up version of the png on git. The WonderBrush file is the same size.

Merged. Thanks!

There is still the issue with the standard icon being rectangular, but with other websites expecting to find a square logo.

The Haiku logo is often simply rendered as "AIK" on these pages.
