Forum icon in facebook

OK, I don't do Facebook much, but I just posted in one of my feeds a link to my forum. The main thing I noticed is that it kicked up the xenForo icon. I would rather see a custom image I have done. Where do I need to change to fix that so it will pull an image of mine?

How do I replace the Xenforo Facebook recommend/like logo with my own?
Upload your logo to the server and change the image path in the ACP -> Styles -> Style Properties -> Header and Navigation -> Settings: Facebook Open Graph Logo. Due to caching it can take several weeks for the image to update on the Facebook servers.

Thanks Brogan... I KNEW that I had seen it somewhere - I wish the search feature was a little more "google'esque" as it returned a LOT of non-related info on the terms I used.

Sorry for necroposting, but this is the same question continued:
In the Debug of FB I get the following error:

Code:
Warnings That Should Be Fixed
og:image could not be downloaded or is too small og:image was not defined, could not be downloaded or was not big enough.
Please define a chosen image using the og:image metatag, and use an image that's at least 200x200px and is accessible from Facebook.
Image 'http://rassvet.com/forum/styles/soft_responsive/xenforo/logo.png' will be used instead.
In the style properties everything's fine, image's fine (220x220px@25kb), in the raw tags and construction based on them - everything's fine and shows fine.
Code:
Meta Tag    <meta property="og:image" content="http://rassvet.com/forum/styles/soft_responsive/xenforo/logo.og.png" />
But it still uses main logo and standard .og image (although it's replaced by my own custom image throughout the whole server), no matter how often I refresh.

What am I doing wrong?

The problem is at Facebook's end.

Mine wasn't working, then it was working, then it wasn't, then it was, now it isn't working again.
With no changes made.
