Why isn't my share on Facebook / LinkedIn updating to reflect recent changes to the Flipbook?


If you have shared a Flipbook on Facebook, Facebook will cache (save) it's appearance for quite a long time.

This can mean that any changes you make to your Flipbook might not be reflected in the Facebook post.

Changes such as Open Graph, PDF updates / changes etc.

Fortunately, there is a tool that can force Facebook to scrape (download) new information about your Flipbook.

Unfortunately, LinkedIn keeps the cached data for a long time from the first time the link is previewed and does not offer a "debug tool".

The only way to “clear” the sharing preview cache is to trick LinkedIn into thinking it has never seen your flipbook before.
You can do this by adding a variable to your flipbook link when you share it on LinkedIn.

"?page=1" was added at the end of the site's URL. It will force the metadata to be recollected. Don't worry, it won't affect your webpage.
