I have a Wordpress site with a premium theme and Yoast SEO installed. In my posts I use a lot of images inserted into text and then the rest as a gallery on the bottom. When sharing the post on Facebook I see the Featured Image as a thumbnail. Is there any way I could pick any image from my Wordpress post and use it as a Facebook thumbnail?

1 Answer 1


you can select any image and text from a page or post in the social section of your yoast section

heres the instructions


you can also see what facebook is pulling before you share by using the debugger


  • Perfect! Can I do this to share the same post with different images? Is Facebook caching wast was shared or is it always looking into a current image in the post?
