    select thumbnail for post
    I like to put images in my posts. I want the top photo I select to be the thumbnail when I share the post to my Facebook page and elsewhere. Instead, the last (bottom) image in the post always ends up being the thumbnail. I’ve tried deleting and re-entering the top image in hopes it will then ‘read’ as the last image, but this hasn’t worked. How can I choose the thumbnail I want to show up when I share the post?

    Unfortunately, we have no control over the images that Facebook chooses. We really only send them the URL of the post, and they hunt through that for the excerpt and images to include. From: https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/avalaible-facebook-thumbnail-issue?replies=7#post-1000734
