I suggest you ...

Put a picture/thumbnail of a website when the bookmark is posted, rather than the poster's picture

The Diigo page would look a lot better if the bookmarks that are posted have a small picture/image/thumbnail to the left of the link, rather than the profile picture of the person who posted it. It gets repetitive/redundant to see that person's picture/image over and over again. Instead, having a small image of what you're about to see on the website/bookmark gives you a sense of what you'll see if you decide to click on it. It is much more informative and useful and adds diversity to the look of the page.

    YES !!!

    It's definitively the feature that I'd like the most. It bothers me, and I have been searching for a more appealing site for a while.

    Even as a premium feature if they choose, I'd like to have an automatic thumbnail of the site in the bookmarks, it helps me to use my bookmarks when viewed as a list.
    Stumble upon, when I used it, had this automatic feature. I think Diigo interface could be improved.
    I think a lot of people could want to buy premium, only to have this feature.

    It could be perfect!! Thanks for the idea!
    Even more we should add these thumbnails for our library automatically.
    As temporally approach of the current situation, we should be capable of editing the pictures inside our bookmarks without the need of screenshots or adding other useless extra entry of picture like now.

    Edmodo does this really well. Alternatively, a thumbnail option as with FB where it picks up images from the website and allows you to choose a representative thumbnail or none.Ideally all three options as not all webpages are visually-compelling as thumbnails.

    Having a thumbnail of the bookmarked site can be a lifesaver. User experience wise.... having an avatar there isn't as meaningful as putting a website bookmarked thumbnail. I hope your developer team is really considering this in their discussions.
