Facebook Like button cache

Posted on 2011-10-21
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
When you click a Like button it seems to copy what's between the Title tags, some meta words and the first image it finds to your Facebook page.  But it seems to cache this information because if I change it on the website page and unlike/relike the page, the old information gets transferred again to Facebook.  Is there a way to clear this cache so new data is copied?

Also, is it documented somewhere exactly what is copied to Facebook.  It's not clear what meta words are taken.

Thanks for any help,

    Did you tried to clear a browser cache?

    Thanks, but I found that there methods within Facebook to clear it's cache and that's the solution, not clearing the browser cache.

    The solution isn't to clear the browser cache but to clear the Facebook cache.
