    Sorry but I failed to understand what your question is about. If you're asking where you can provide info about your company, industry, business, etc. (which basically what the form is for), I guess you're looking for the Profile section of your Account.

    Just head over to this page https://www.jotform.com/myaccount/profile > scroll down to the bottom and fill out the Company Name, Job Title, and Industry upon your discretion.

    In case we misunderstood your question, just get back to us with a bit more info and a clearer description of what you're trying to do so we can better assist you.

    I am posting the link on our social media so people can register for the blood drive. 

    but instead of the link stating blood drive registration it states Professional Development Workshop Form. That is not what we want it to say and very confusing.

    You never mentioned which social media platform you're sharing it to, nor which form it is.

    I'll just assume that:

    1. It's this form 70956804642159

    2. And it's in Facebook

    If you're sharing in Facebook, then this isn't a JotForm-related issue. It has something to do with when Facebook last scraped the URL you're posting and their raw OG tags.

    I've fixed this for you now but in case you encounter this issue in the future, here's what you need to do:

    1. Go to this page https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/ 

    2. Paste your Form URL http://www.jotform.us/form/70956804642159

    3. Click the DEBUG button

    4. Scroll down to see how the URL is being shared in Facebook

    5. Click the SCRAPE AGAIN button

    Try sharing the form in Facebook again and let us know if you're still having issues with the title shown on your shared post.
