Did you know that you can CHOOSE the image / photo you want to go along with that status update you’re sharing on Facebook, where it includes a link (URL) and where that link automatically pulls an image from the link? Like from a blog, for instance?
I’m not talking about choosing a photo to post with a status update. It’s pretty obvious that when you choose ‘photo / video’ that you’ll be choosing the photo or video that you want to add and share.
But when you’re adding a link /web address / URL you have the option of choosing to upload a different image / photo, rather than using the one that may initially appear in the preview pane. Instead of using the image generated by the system you can choose a new / different image to upload.
This change took place in Fall 2013.
