I’m going to share one simple but obscure Facebook tool that can help you fix a Facebook link preview that’s not working. Facebook used to allow you to change the image or title of any link preview right on the platform but that is no longer the case. They’re trying to cut down on fake news so they only allow you to change Facebook link previews if you own the content.
Facebook Link Preview Problems
Let’s say you tried to share a blog post from your own page on Facebook, but when you looked at the Facebook link preview you saw that the image you used didn’t really look good or maybe it didn’t show up at all. So, you go to your blog post and update the image, then go back to Facebook only to find that the Facebook link preview isn’t working. Or at least it still shows the old image, not the new picture that you recently added to your blog post.
