    Recently I was making posts and then changing the thumbnail that FB pulled from my sites and changing it to a much bigger picture. There was a "change thumbnail" option but now I don't see it on any of my accounts. Now if I delete the existing thumbnail it pulls and upload a new one as a new photo it then drops all the post text information it pulled from my site and just posts the pic. Am I missing something here??

    I have changed the thumbnail pic on some of my sites that it pulls but it doesn't see the new one. Just the old one and I think it takes FB a long time to change this crawling.

    Thanks

    The little arrows still show up for me. Maybe the articles you're posting do not tag the image(using OG tags) or are blocking the FB bot from getting thumbs somehow.

    Google "Facebook Debug Tool", insert URL of your desired page, fetch it, you should see list of your og: tags, there should be new image, if not, try fetching it again, then you can post it on Facebook and there should be your desired thumbnail :)
