Image for website

Hello, I use wordpress. How do I add the image for the website that loads itself when I send the link to anyone on instagram? I’ve added the site icon but the image hasn’t changed yet. How do I add the image?

You will need to add a featured image or a thumbnail image on every post/page that you created, then copy the post link and paste it to social media/chat and you will see the image with the headers or title of the post from the link.

Making Custom Social Media Images for Share Links in WordPress Posts and Pages

Usually, this feature is included in SEO plugin such as Yoast SEO, etc.
But, if you want only this feature, you can install WP Social Preview plugin.

Or, if you want to make it manually & integrate it to your WP theme, Facebook & Instagram use same meta tag from your site. It’s called Open Graph protocol.
Something like:

<meta property="og:title" ... />
<meta property="og:url" ... />
<meta property="og:image" ... />
