Edit Shared Facebook Links

This very handy but obscure feature in Facebook allows you to edit the title and description of the links you share in Facebook. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Paste the link you want to share in your status update
  2. Wait for Facebook to create the headline, description and thumbnail image for the article you’re sharing
  3. Click on the headline Facebook has created
  4. Edit to your liking
  5. Click on the description Facebook created
  6. Edit to your liking
  7. Click Post
