Error in <meta property="og:title" content="[my page name]" />

For some reason, somewhere in the code this statement with the wrong page name got saved, and so that is what shows up when I post a link on Facebook. How do I change what is now in "[my page name]" to the text I want to display?

You can change the page name by clicking the  Page Settings button, then click Page Name & Description and you'll see a filed for the Page Name.

I already went through and checked all of the pages on my website, but none of them have the name that is turning up when I post the link on Facebook.

Thanks Mike. So, the word (scream) shows up when I post a link. I should add that "(scream)" is the name of a cd I sell on the site, but there is no page with that as the assigned page name.

Facebook never updates unless you tell them to.  Once you have your page done, go to Facebook and try to update here

Thanks

Yeah, ran this through the Facebook debugger a couple of times. When I click on the "See exactly what our scraper sees for your URL" link, about a quarter of the way down the page there is this:
&lt;/script&gt;&lt;meta property="og:title" content="(scream)"&gt;

I don't see a specified OG tage in your site, so to change it, you might need to specify one.

How do I go about that (understand, total non-programmer here).
