Hi all,
I need some information regarding a site's thumbnail.
You know how you reference a site and a small image may appear to show the site...I have no idea how they use a thumbnail choice.
You see I have a site bizgro.jobs and if you reference it in GLIP for example, the picture it shows is facebooks icon...I don't know how to change this?  I think it happens in facebook as well.  You add a website link and a small image will show with a site description?  This is the one I am talking about?
Does anyone have any idea?

You probably need to make sure the image that you want to show up as the features image is already added to the <head></head> of your HTML file as a meta property tag. Something like this:

<meta property="og:image" content="http://bizgro.jobs/images/test.jpg" />

At least how it used to work in facebook. Please let me know if it worked.
