Today Facebook Page administrators woke up to find they don’t have the ability to attach a custom image when sharing a link.


Facebook removed this feature, which gave Page admins full control of the look and feel of link posts. Content creators must now choose between the set of thumbnails Facebook fetches from the linked page.

Link posts are the recommended and best-performing way to drive traffic to a website outside of Facebook, but this change now makes them less attractive. What to do?

Gain to the Rescue

Fortunately, the ability to add your own images to link posts is available in Gain’s world-class post editor, the best way to see exactly how your Facebook post will look before you publish it. Gain’s post editor gives you full image control for both photo and link posts. Import images from anywhere (your computer, Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, integrated web image search) and edit them in place (crop, enhance, add text and filters).
