How To: Clear Facebook Cache & Refresh The Link Preview With One Click

It happens with most of us that sometimes after writing a beautiful piece of content when we try to share it on Facebook, it shows up wrong meta information. The generated meta box shows up false information due to many reasons.

Sometimes it’s because of timing that causes the issue, while sometimes we intentionally change the information, but Facebook still shows the old link scrape information. Today, I’m going to show you how you can debug and fix link scrape information on Facebook.

Fix link preview using the Facebook Debugger

Step 1: Click here to visit Facebook’s sharing debugger page and paste your URL.

Step 2: Click Debug to fetch existing metadata that’s stored on Facebook’s servers.

Now it will show you the scrape information that’s already stored on servers. All the errors will be shown there.

Step 3: Now, when you know which meta tag has the error, it’s time to go back to your site and fix the issues.

Step 4: At last, you can use the Scrape Again option to fetch fresh and correct information.

That’s all! In this way, you can fix all the links that are reflecting false information while sharing. Just correct their meta information on your site and fetch the link again in open graph sharing debugger.
