    How do I set a specific thumbnail image and text for my pages to be used when posting to Facebook, twitter or any social media?

    I don't know if you are an author or developer but if you are a developer:

    It's a matter of maintaining data. If you want to specify an image and text on your own per page, you need to add a new dialog field to your page properties. After that you need to add the content of this fields into your html header "open graph meta tags" http://ogp.me/. Another option would be to use the meta description for the text in social media as well as using on of the images on your page in the open graph image tag.

    If you are an author please ask your developers to add another field.
