    Hi,
    Facebook crawls a page in order to decide how to display it.

    You can use st_image property of span tag / og_image tag in order to specify the image to be shared when sharethis widget is used for sharing:

    To know more about the customization , you can visit the page:

    WordPress has ways to put meta tags. Typically, this is done in the header.php template for the theme.

    There are also wordpress plugins that setup these tags automatically.
    For eg: Yoast WordPress SEO

    Thanks for using sharethis.
