Social Cards are visible on social media networks and are the combined results of using:

  1. Your social media post update, plus the use of an existing:
  2. Social media link post image (usually 1200x628 because it works best on post channels),
  3. Along with an attention-getting title (from the social metadata,  25 characters max),
  4. Compelling description (from the social metadata, 30 characters max), and
  5. Call-to-action (from the social meta + link URL or button depending on the channel)

A social card is what you see as a "card" style display on the social channel itself and is a way to engage your audience with eye-catching, impactful content.
