    My site is still giving a old metadata for FB like button. I have changed all entries and it still gives the same title and ur as it was 2 days before. What can I do to update this info?

    It was

    <meta property="og:title" content="OLDTITLE"/>
    <meta property="og:url" content="http://OLDWEBSITE"/>

    Now its

    <meta property="og:title" content="NEWTITLE"/>
    <meta property="og:url" content="http://NEWWEBSITE"/>

    And after about 2 days facebook is still giving the old info when user clicks LIKE on this page...

    I've noticed this happens with my tests too. I think Facebook has just cached the data. It'll correct itself with time I believe. Also, within the application configuration on Facebook app dev page, you changed the base URL and all that to the new site?

    No. Base URL of an app is still the same. I just clicked like button before I changed the metadata from the template, so it was "YOUR DOMAIND TITLE" , "YOUR DOMAIN URL" etc.

    Maybe I need to change my app url, because it looks like this data wont be updated ever...

    Yes you'll need to do that. Change that, wait 10-15 minutes, and try liking a *new* page that Facebook hasn't had a chance to cache. I think they flush every now and then, but for testing purposes to see if everything is how you want it, you should Like new content pages.
