Site title and Tagline in "General Description" on Dashboard

I have a site that I am trying to post to facebook as a link. When I post the link, FB automatically pulls in these two fields into the post: "site title" | "tagline". It was then that I realized that I forgot to change my site title and tagline. :-) So I went back to the general settings and made those changes.

Oddly, the tagline took, but the site title didn't. In the Settings on WP, the site title and tagline are correct, but when I try and post the link to fb, the automatic facebook text is pulling from the old site title despite the fact I have changed it. I've cleared cache and tried multiple browsers so that isn't it. And the very odd thing is that fb recognizes my new tagline, it is only my site title that it is still pulling the old one.

The only think I can think of is that somehow the general settings are not "talking" to my files behind. Can someone tell me which directory this site name pulls from so that I can go look in the directory itself?

Any other advice is appreciated as well.

Thanks so much,

Just talked to Chuck and he advised that it was a likely a facebook issue. I went into facebook developer tools and searched for a debugger. I then entered the url of the "offending" website into the url. When I did this, it actually forced facebook the cache.

It worked!!!!!!! Thanks Chuck. Case closed.
