Facebook Clear Cache for a Specific Webpage URL

Generally Facebook caches our thumbnails. It will not get refreshed, even though if we delete the images from our webpage.

This is a problem which might occur while sharing contents from our site.

Even though if we clear cache from our browser / from our site, still facebook uses the old thumbnails.

To resolve this issue we have one best solution at facebook level.

  1. Go to http://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug
  2. Paste your webpage URL in the provided text box. (Example: http://myownexamplesitename.com/somefolder/filename)
  3. Click on Debug button.
  4. Now go to your site and refresh your webpage.
  5. From then onwards facebook will take new updates in your webpage

If in case the above solution did not work, please try adding "fbrefresh=ANYTHING" at the end of your URL and follow same steps.

NOTE: Mostly param fbrefresh might not be necessary as the debug tool refreshes the object without it.
