Has it ever happened to you? You create a Passle post and share it to LinkedIn, only to see that the featured image is a bit fuzzy or perhaps only showing in part. You update and replace it and try to share again, but LinkedIn is still showing you the old version (or a small grey octopus - this is Clive).
This happens because LinkedIn caches the preview that is first generated when the link was shared. LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook use cache, because it reduces the average cost (time or energy) to access data, but it can be annoying when it impacts your beautiful posts.
So what to do? Luckily, there is a quick fix. You have to prompt LinkedIn to really "look" at the link of your post again and generate a fresh preview. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Press the LinkedIn button on your Passle post and copy the link you see the in dialog window
2. Paste this link in a new browser tab and have a look at the URL. You will notice that there is a section that starts with "&title="
Insert any character just before this section and hit Enter. This will force LinkedIn to re-fetch the data and display your new image.
Refresh the page on your Passle post and done. You can now share to LinkedIn with the right image.
