Change thumbnail for home page in wordpress site

    I have a site “”.
    If I want to share the link of my site on facebook messenger, some guest author’s pic is attached as a thumbnail instead of the featured image set on the home page.
    I tried deleting the author’s pic and uploading the image that I need to show as a thumbnail with the same name as that of the author and I have even deactivated social share and SEO plugins, but nothing is working.

    I think somewhere the link is cached. Even if I edit the home page content, when I am sharing the link, it still shows the older content.
