How to set a featured image in a page or post using WordPress 3.5

A featured image is a critical component of any WordPress post or page. The featured image essentially is a graphical shortcut to the content of the post or page, and appears when the URL is shared on social media (such as Facebook) or featured on the website. The featured image permits additional SEO for the content page. If you’re not doing it already, start using featured images today. (This post assumes that the theme you use permits them; some do not. If the theme you use does not, it is recommended to consider another theme that does)
