Default image when hitting the new Facebook ‘share’ button

    Hi all, first off great news about the new Facebook share button – i’ve waited ages for this! However, I have a small problem with it..

    When a user hits the Facebook share on one of my posts, the default image which shows (to be shared on Facebook) is one of my email icons from the site furniture (?!), not the main image from the post. The user can scroll through image options to select the blog image, but, im guessing not many people will do this and if they do – it’s annoying to have to do it. The share button should default to the blog image it is sharing right?

    Does anyone know why this is happening and how i can change it so that the default image when shared on Facebook is 1) either that of the post or 2) An image i have already specified (i.e blog header)?

    The same happens when you post the link of a post within Facebook to share – the email icon pops up…

    Thanks in advance for any help
