If you're using WordPress and you want to control what is displayed on your shares, I recommend you to use a plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/, https://wordpress.org/plugins/add-meta-tags/ or https://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/ where you can define the open graph meta tags used by Facebook to choose the image and text included in the share.
