    Facebook and Website Images

    When you add a link in Facebook you are given the opportunity to include an image from the site. Usually you have to choose from around 6 images which may not include the image you want. Is there a way to force Facebook to include other images in the webpage in the choice. The website in question is one I am in control of.

    I also met this problem, but I don't find any solution. I think you cannot control Facebook to bring up that image if it does not find itself.

    If the website is yours it's possible to specify the first image to see through Facebook's Open Graph tags, if not it's a bit trickier and often easier to just upload the image and link in the body.
