yep that's expected, deleting your post on FB makes no difference, their cache of shared page content is independent of individual posts. make a new FB post with the old bio information then follow the steps above and refresh the FB post content. the FB post will then display the new bio information.

FB caches external site content used in it's posts after it's been fetched. You can tell FB to fetch it again to update the cache:

* load the FB post in question (click on the timestamp link at the top of the post)
* click on the downward pointing arrow top right hand side of post
* select "refresh share attachment" from the pop up menu that appears
Thanks! However I have deleted my original and whenever I go to share from soundcloud itself it pulls up the incorrect bio.

Ah I see, you have to do it from within FB, cheers!
