A thumbnail image is used to represent your paper on the Paper.li Newsstand. It's also the image included when you have selected (via the Social Media Agent module setting) to share your web newsletter link and have selected to include your paper info and thumbnail image on Facebook or Linkedin.
Add a thumbnail image
From your Paper Settings Dashboard > Social Media Agent > Paper thumbnail to upload an image.
Click to upload your image.

You must own the copyright or have the necessary rights for any content you upload.
Show your thumbnail image when sharing your paper URL (Facebook/Linkedin)
- Go to your Paper Settings Dashboard > Social Media Agent module.
- Under Facebook or Linkedin, turn the toggle to ON.
- Under "Share web newspaper link", select "Include paper info and thumbnail image"

For sharing across networks please note:
Changes will usually be reflected with the next automatic update of your paper
Some services can take up to 7 days before presenting your new image. This is due to the expiration set on their image cache and we unfortunately can't influence this.
If you paste your URL into a status update field, depending on the social platform you are on, you may need to toggle between the gray standard P and your cover image. Once you select the cover image and save, it will be displayed.
If you are sharing your paper via the standard share icons found under the SHARE tab, (such as Twitter, G+, FB) your thumbnail will be automatically identified and displayed.
