Facebook linked-Image Cache problem

I put in a link to a vimeo movie on facebook, and because the movie was not ready the wrong image came up. The video is ready now, but the wrong image continues to appear. I could load an image, but I was wondering if there was a way to get facebook to release this incorrect image from the cache and get the correct image from Vimeo to display.

Thank you.

These will work for updating Facebook's cache if the video is re-posted, but will not update already posted images. I have done the debugger tool when updating website images and FB still wants to post the link with old images that I just changed over.

Debug the URL with the Facebook debugger tool: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug

See "Updating Objects": https://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/using-objects
