I wonder if there is any way so that when i share a pickture onto facebook, it will show a thumbnail on facebook ?

Example this one from my gallery

it will show a link if i use

But then the visitor might don't know how to navigate back to the gallery, without a new link...

I also have the "share with friends" facebook mod, but that one also don't show thumb

Yeah good luck with that, I imagine these updates will break all facebook plugins unless they are updated?

I'm already getting warning emails from FB about these changes., is currently using the following deprecated features:

Social Plugins (Like Button, Like Box) without absolute URL's in their `href` parameter.
Non-threaded comments. Please see the developer roadmap for more details about this change.

These changes will be permanently enabled for all apps in 72 days on Wednesday, 10 July 2013.
