Have you ever shared a link on Facebook and battled with it displaying the right image? Sometimes, you don’t get a thumbnail at all… frustrating, right? That’s when the Facebook Debugger can save the day. This tool lets you preview how the link will look when shared, detect if there are any issues, and force it to scrape the latest data from the site. It’s a very handy and FREE tool!
To try it, visit: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/
Enter the link you want to test into the field and click DEBUG. After that, I usually like to click on “Scrape Again” which forces it to pull the latest data instead of any cached images.
The preview lets you see if there any things you need to fix. Run a test after making changes to make sure it updates the data again. Once you are happy with how it looks, you can share it on Facebook!
