Facebook Allows Page Admins to Control Thumbnail Images for External Links
When posting an external link in Facebook the results on what thumbnail image accompanies that link can be hit or miss at best.

While this seems minor it is actually a pretty big deal and a nice feature. There are times where the auto-generated thumbnails have almost nothing to do with a link. The trouble is that removing the thumbnail takes away a critical visual element that draws attention to the post. Having the ability to control that image should allow Facebook users to be more creative and give a better indication of their point of view regarding a linked story or item rather than the force fed images of the past.
This feature should be available to all. Are you seeing it?
