This is not a bug.  It is how it is set up.

When you share a post on Facebook, or when Jetpack Publicize publishes a post to your Facebook page, Facebook crawls the page and looks for Open Graph meta tags in the head to build a complete post preview (with an image, title, description, ...).
Jetpack automatically adds these meta tags for you, unless you use a different plugin to handle Open Graph tags.

Hello,

As others said Facebook automatically chooses the image itself. It has no setup and you cannot set this anyway. The only way you could do this is for you to create a Facebook page and switch accounts each time you want to post something and there should appear a way to upload your image. Unfortunately that is the only way and not many people know how to do this. if you don't understand i will try to explain it with more details because i cannot show images. Smile

Alright, then i will try to explain as much as i can.
Now you created a Facebook page for your members to like it.
Ok! So now you go up to your personal settings where you go to log out and you choose your page:

After that you need to press the Home button to take you to the official timeline of your page:

After you do that then you will see your normal posts there with the images you don't like:

Well if you post there to your status the link of the topic from your forum it will automatically open a window below that and it will have you the option to upload your own image:

I'm afraid this is the only way this can be done. But still it's better than nothing! Smile

This is the only way you get to choose to upload an image yourself. This is 100% sure that you will upload the image you want but you must have it on your desktop. Normal shares directly will not change that no. That is the only way i know on how to upload your own image on Facebook.
