Why does the facebook preview of my form have the wrong title?

    I changed the title of my form but when I post it on FB it has the old title, with the year 2017 instead of 2018. It's a festival vendor application.   How do I get it to show the title as it is now?

    It is because Facebook saves the first title when you posted the form URL into Facebook.

    To update it, use this tool https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

    Enter the form URL then click Debug button. Example:


    If Link Preview shows the updated form title then you're good to go. Just close the page and then reshare the form URL to Facebook.
