OG meta tags not updating on Facebook


#1

Hey forum!

I've been trying to add a meta tag for my site so I can share it on Facebook, LinkedIn etc, and am having a bit of a trouble getting it to work. I've followed this article from @thesergie but can't seem to get results!

Here's what my site looks like shared on Facebook atm:

But I want the image to be this:

So here's the code I uploaded to my custom code section (you can see the description is different to what is showing)

<meta property="og:title" content="Fish & Co - A Strategic Design Consultancy" />
<meta property="og:description" content="We create the strategies and design solutions that allow our clients to innovate, engage their customers in new relevant ways and transform their brands into memorable experiences." />
<meta property="og:site_name" content="Fish & Co" />
<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
<meta property="og:url" content="http://www.fishandco.co.uk/" />




Any help would be great!

Cheers,
Jamie

If you want that image to show up, you'll need to include the "og:image" tag with a link to the new image. Also, you should try the Facebook Debugger tool (https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug)

I have clicked on the button 'Fetch new scrape information' here and then it works. I think it is some caching issue from facebook ?

I don't know what happened or when/why/how it did but it worked! Here's the new share tab:

@maikelkoopman I think you're right though, it is a caching issue. I clicked the same thing as you in Chrome and it worked fine!

Thanks forum!
