While working on this blog, I had a Facebook sharing link preview issue while sharing this website. Unfortunately, I was not able to take a screenshot. The issue was it does not display link preview correctly.

Tho I am a full time online worker, I don’t have so much time managing my own blog. Until recently, I failed to settle my invoice in my hosting so I got a suspended account.

The other day, I shared this website in my FB page wall and got the link preview of suspended account. I am sure that the website is live. So I thought it was a Facebook caching issue. It will be resolve several days. Three days passed, and yet still the same.

So I thought I need to take action to manually refresh cache. Probably Facebook for Developers has this tool. And yes, I found the link.

Log in to your Facebook developers account and visit this link https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/.

In the Sharing Debugger tab, enter the URL you wish to debug and information will show up.

Since we only want to clear cache of the link preview, all you have to do is to hit the button “Scrape Again”.

The Facebook sharing display link preview issue should be fixed now.
