facebook thumbnails missing

Sharing links in facebook, e.g. writing a message on your wall, is common praxis. Usually you can select an image as thumbnail that should be used. But if a MZ3 Book is the only content on the page, there is no image visible for facebook. But you can tell facebook what image to use.
