This Is The Reason Why You Cannot Customize Link Preview On Facebook

On a log post to the API Change category posted by Matthew Robertson -a team member to the Facebook developer- on June 28th, 2017, it was made clear that customization of link priveiw that is attached to a post will no longer be possible. The reason.

Facebook want to minimize to the maximum extent possible the spread of misleading information. So "by removing the ability to customize link metadata (i.e. headline, description, image) from all link sharing entry points on Facebook, we are eliminating a channel that has been abused to post false news" Matthew Robertson explains.

The point is, your inability to customize link preview on your Facebook post is not as a result of problem with Facebook API nor is it a fault of your browser, rather it is because Facebook have stopped that feature.
