While sharing some software it's a good idea to include a link file ( address launcher of home page). A file without an image is not eye catchable.
How to create a link file with a custom image as icon?

Create a application launcher. For this save the following to a file with .desktop extension. Make it executable (chmod +x filename)

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=askubuntu.com
Type=Link
URL=http://www.askubuntu.com
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/firefox.png

change /usr/share/pixmaps/firefox.png to your icon, http://www.askubuntu.com to your link
