Sharing Website On Facebook

Hi, when you share a website link on Facebook, Facebook seems to automatically generate an image (thumbnail) and description before you share it (see example below for this website)

I have just created a new website and i don't like the image and description that Facebook is using. Does anyone know if you can control the image and description that Facebook automatically generates, thanks in advance for your help.

if you put an image on the page you want to share on FacebooK, it may create a thumbnail with it...

Surely there is a way to control the image that it uses... as you can see from the sample image i provided, EE doesn't even have that image on the home page

Have you looked carefully at the source of the EE homepage? Possibly the image you see is this: http://www.experts-exchange.com/images/experts-exchange/experts-exchange-logo-opengraph.png (referenced in a meta tag property='og:image').

EDIT: Some searching gives for example this reference: http://kb.mailchimp.com/article/how-can-i-choose-the-image-thumbnail-that-shows-up-on-facebook
