Get The Graphic You Want With Links On FaceBook

FaceBook is a great place to share links from your Blog

However sometimes when you share a link your pictures from your Blog don’t show up predictably.  I figured out how to “flush the stored memory” at FaceBook.  FaceBook stores these webpages – Caches them for speed, but in the process, if you make changes to the webpage, it doesn’t know that you have new pictures.  Then I also figured out how to force it into having the right image for the page.  I’ve even think that you can have an image appear that isn’t on that page by using the following techniques – that’s if you wanted to.

I’ve been frustrated with this problem for a while but now I know how to make my plastic surgery webpages show the correct picture.  This is not just for blogs, it works with other webpages too.
