Troubleshooting the image

If you have saved and published your changes and the image has not updated, try using the Sharing Debugger:

Go to https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ and type your website URL in the search box below "sharing Debugger." Then click Debug.

This will tell you the last time your website was scraped, meaning when Facebook fetched information from your URL. If you want to force the new image to appear, click Scrape Again and wait a minute or two before doing it again. This make take several tries.
