My post title didn’t get updated

Once 50 actions (likes, shares and comments) have been associated with an object, you won’t be able to update its title.


Wow! This actually does it!

My biggest issue was that after making a new page or post, it would take time for facebook to update the sharing info because everything is cached with them! What I really wanted was a plugin that specifically could instantly scrape and update the post without me manually doing on with the Sharing debug tool on facebook and this plugin does exactly that!! Congratulations on making this awesome plugin. Hope development continues.

Works! Awesome Plugin!

I was using a plugin with a facebook sharing feature that kept uploading an irrelevant old photo even though I added a specific photo I wanted to share with the plugin content. After I added this plugin that updates the facebook open graph the right photo starting coming up. Really excellent plugin! As a person with no computer programming language skills I was getting really frustrated without it.
