    The plugin uses the first image in the post, or the featured image if there is one.

    If the post has no images, then the plugin does not specify an image, which makes Facebook "guess", basically.

    Probably I explained the problem wrongly. With post I intend the facebook post, not the one in the site. My problem is with images in a page of the site: by clicking the like button in this page and then posting this action on fb, the plugin choose an image of the sidebar, in my case the third in the sidebar. Instead, I want that it chooses the one that I want, which is the logo of the sponsor to which the pages is dedicated, and the one that is shown is of another sponsor which do not deal with that page.

    Thank you again for your help!

    No, the plugin doesn't choose an image in the sidebar. It chooses images from the post itself, or it doesn't choose any image at all.

    If you have no images in the post, then *Facebook* will try to guess an image, and sometimes it can choose one from the sidebar.

    Thanks, now I got it. Anyway, I have an image in my webpage which is the one I want to be seen in the post on fb; here the link to the my page: http://scub.unibz.it/snowdays/?page_id=1592 and the image of interest is the top one, where there is written 2SNOW etc.The image that is now put in the fb post is the one of Burger King. Can you suggest me something to do to solve this? Sorry if I'm stressing you, but it is very important that the right image is shown since is the image of the company which sponsor the tournament.

    Thanks

    Make the image into the featured image for the post, or put it into the post itself in some manner. Then SFC will use that image.

    Also, you've configured your FB Application wrong, with the wrong app domain.
