A featured image is also known as a post thumbnail. This wordpress feature adds a little bit extra to your post, page, or content. Featured images are always a nice touch to blogs to add something different with all the words to follow. If you do not like the idea of a featured image or how your wordpress theme displays it, all blogs have the option to turn the featured image OFF.
For certain industries, like the entertainment world, food industry or even contractors, featured images add a great preview to the blog that is being shared with users.
