By default shortened links inherit the META Title, Description and Image from the target URL.

With Custom Social Previews you can overwrite these values to control how your links show up social media and in messenger apps that display Social Previews.

It works by adding the following parameters to the LONG_URL
Social Title st
Social Description sd
Social Image si

In the web interface we added inputs for these values in the advanced settings, and will add the URL paramters for you.

In the Google Sheet the headers are in the template by default.

the resulting LONG_URL will look like this:
https://yourwebsite.com/page/?st=MyCustomTitle&sd=MyCustomDescription&si=https://urltomycustom.com/image.jpg

You can test your Custom Social Previews on https://metatags.io/ by adding your HOPLA Link
