I've manually changed the home page Facebook open graph preview image, but when I paste the home page URL in Facebook, it still uses an old image.

How long before Facebook updates its cache / uses the updated open graph preview image?

1 Answer 1


Facebook automatically clears the cache every 24 hours: Actually Facebook scrapes the pages and updates the cache every 24 hours.


The above is the link where you can see this.

  • We're facing the problem that Facebook is still using the original image we used around 14 days ago.

  • Where on that page is the mention of the cache?

  • Yes. You can set it to scrape more often.. Mar 16, 2017 at 11:23
  • If you want to know your scrape information then 1. Visit the FB page developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/og/object 2. Enter your domain. 3. Click the button "Fetch new scrape information" 4. Done Mar 16, 2017 at 11:25
  • I don't think we should have to do this every time we set a new FB image in Yoast SEO :-)
