You can control the thumbnail for the sharing of a page via meta tags in the page header:

<meta property="og:title" content="title" />
<meta property="og:description" content="description" />
<meta property="og:image" content="thumbnail_image" />

So for thumbnail, for example, you could just make sure the following meta tag is in your page header (substituting a valid image path, of course):

<meta property="og:image" content="http://www.example.com/thumbnail.jpg" />

Facebook isn't supporting the Share tag anymore, they've deprecated it in favor of "Like." A Like button makes use of the same kind of meta tags, though there are a couple more which are required.  More info is available here:
