    David,

    Go to the image you want to appear as a thumbnail.

    Right click and select "copy link location" or "copy image url"

    Next go to your wordpress backend and login.

    Go to your themes settings or appearance then editor. Go to header.php or its equivalent.

    Paste this into the head section

    <meta property="og:image" content="THE-URL-OF-YOUR-IMAGE-THAT-YOU-COPIED" />

    You may have to wait a few minutes for this to populate before posting on Facebook but it should work.

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn
