Any way to designate a preview image in Adobe Muse for pasting link into social media?

I am working with the latest version of Adobe Muse CC (2018).

When I paste the link to my Muse-created website into a Facebook comment, it shows this preview:
Muse-FBpreview.jpg
The preview image is the bottom layer from a layered PSD file set up to be a rollover button. I would not mind if it showed the other (top) layer, which is not darkened like this one.

But my question is: why is this particular image being used? Is this something that is decided by Muse or by Facebook? (When I post the link to LinkedIn, it displays correctly, showing the top, un-darkened layer.)

On googling this question, I see some suggestions to download a third-party snippet of code to copy and paste. I do not consider this an acceptable solution, or even a workaround. This is why I used Muse in the first place — they promised me I would not have to deal with code!

I would like to be be able to select a particular image in the Assets panel (for instance, a flattened, un-darkened copy of this image) and designate it to be used as a preview image when I paste the link into social media.

Is this (or something similar) possible from within the application?

thanks!

If you don’t want to add the code yourself, you will need to use a third-party widget. There are several to choose from:
