    Can I change the meta description of the form when sharing in Facebook?

    Asked by Deoz on November 08, 2016 at 02:23 PM

    Hi, he is saying "how can" edit the default "please click the link to complete this form" before be posted.

    I think it's a META TAG OG, I have the same question I want edit it before it posted.

    The problem it's not share the form in facebook, the question is how we can edit this text before it be shared.

    Yes, the meta property open graph are the one being used by Facebook when you share a link.

    Unfortunately, you cannot change the "og:description" of your form. By default, it is set to "Please click the link to complete this form." If you want, you can download the form's source code and host it in your servers. In that way, you can change the "og:description" manually in the source code.

    You can edit the link description in Facebook before, but I believe it was disabled now.

    Please take note that you can change the "og:title" by changing the Page Title in the Preferences wizard. There are issues wherein when you update the page title of your form and share it in Facebook, the old information will still show up. When that happens, you need to use the Facebook Debuger tool and scrape the new information. 

    Hope that helps. Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.
