    you have to set the OG IMAGE tag or some sh1t, google it you'll see. normally FB just pics a random image but you can choose an exact image using that meta tag.

    If it's a brand new article it won't pick up immediately, however, there's a way around this.

    Google this: "Facebook debugger" the URL will be something like debug.facebook.com or something like that.

    Add the link to your article and click the "fetch/scan" article button, this will force facebook to find all the details within your article (including the OG IMAGE if you specified one).

    Then retry posting :)
