One Minute Tip: Change the Title and Description While Posting an Article to Your Facebook Wall

If you’d like to share an article with Facebook friends or fans, but you don’t like the title or description, you can rename it. You can change the title and description while posting an article to your Facebook wall.

First, click “Link” above your Facebook’s “What’s on your mind?” box.

Start by adding a link to your Facebook wall post.

Copy and paste the link that you want to share into the box and click “attach.” The article title, description and usually a thumbnail photo will appear.

Double click on the Name to edit

Before you hit “Post,” double-click on the title. A box will show up, and you can type a new title.
