Option to use selected frame/component as preview thumbnail for shared links

1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this

When sharing links to a specific frame or component on Slack (or similar), the preview is always the default preview thumbnail for the file.

If you share 3 or 4 links in a slack discussion in succession, they all have the same preview image which is a missed opportunity and can be confusing.

Possible alternate approach

An option to use a preview of the frame/component as the thumbnail when link sharing would mean that in Slack (or similar) other people on the team would have a much more immediate context of what’s being discussed.

Would anyone else find this useful?
