Facebook's Removing the Ability to Edit Link Previews - Here are Your Alternatives

Posted by @DanHinmon, Jul 19, 2017

July 14 we posted a story in this section that announced that Facebook is removing the ability to edit link previews (thanks to @MakalaArce). It’s part of their ongoing effort to limit fake news.

However, it looks like a backlash from publishers has caused Facebook to provide a new option for them. The new approach is described in this article.

If you’re not a media publisher and still want to edit your link previews, “your only option will be to change the Open Graph Tags on your site and posts, which can be tested through Facebook’s Open Graph Debugger tool to see how they appear before you actually post them.”
