    Hi cornelius_butler,

    I think this plugin will serve her purpose: https://wordpress.org/plugins/facebook-thumb-fixer/

    This plug-in is for those who have the problem where sharing a post on Facebook shows the wrong (or no) thumbnail image. It works by making sure the thumbnail is derived from the featured image of your post. If your post doesn't have a featured image then it will use a fall-back image that you can specify. So she can control preview image by controlling featured image for posts.

    Please let us know if you have any other query. We will be glad to help.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
    Rupok

    Hi cornelius_butler,

    Yes. That plugin also works with pages as well where featured image is set. And with this plugin, you can set default thumbnail which will work for your homepage and all other posts/pages where featured image is not set. To set your default thumbnail, please go to "Dashboard > Settings > General" section and scroll down. You will get option to put default thumbnail image path. Please check the attached screenshot for reference.

    Please let us know if you have any confusion. We will be glad to help.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
