Facebook thumbnail


#1

Hello,

I would like to understand why Datasfit does not provide the thumbnail of a facebook post. I want to use Datasift to get facebook posts, but this is something I really need. Are you going to add this to the facebook entity?

Thanks

Do you mean the user's avatar picture? This can be found in the facebook.author.avatar field.

Jason,
It is not the avatar picture. When you put a link,photo or video in a facebook post, facebook will put a thumbnail of this link, like this:

It is a little image that represents the link.
Thanks

OK, I see what you mean. Unfortunately we do not currently support that. I will raise it as a feature request for a future release.
