    How to do this (It is a link which is redirecting to a website):

    [​IMG]

    It looks like a normal link without link title/description and the domain.
    How to reproduce this?

    The website the link on Facebook points to need to have a html tag in the <head> like this:
    <meta property="og:image" content="URL TO IMAGE" />

    where URL TO IMAGE is an image which looks like a video thumbnail.

    Yeah but that will also show the title/description of the url aswell, not just a clickable image on its own.

    Looks like you need to use a fb app to do the above, just found a WP plugin on codecanyon that can do it
