It isn't possible to do it like this anymore. This is the official answer from FB:

Hi

We have changed the behavior of the sharer plugin to be consistent with other plugins and features on our platform.

The sharer will no longer accept custom parameters and facebook will pull the information that is being displayed in the preview the same way that it would appear on facebook as a post from the url OG meta tags.

Thanks
Ibrahim
