Hi all,

 

For some reason the social sharing image was automatically changed to an image that I didn't want to show when I share my website through Facebook. I searched how to change it back and I did. It's been 3 days after I switched the image back but when I share my website through Facebook, it still shows the unwanted image.

 

So normally how long does it take to change the image? or are there anything Ive done wrong?

 

I went to Theme Setting> Social Media>Social Sharing Image, then changed the image, as suggested in many posts.

 

Thank you in advance,

Hi @Wins7 

 

I believe that you can re-crawl the site using this tool: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ but I'm not 100% sure. I used this before 2-3 years when I need Facebook to crawl my site again in order to grab the proper image.

 

Try it and see if this fixes the image issue.

 

Good luck!

Hi, 

I’m having the same issue. It has also been three days since I changed my social sharing image. Do you remember how much longer it took to display the updated image? 

Thanks,
