In the following links, there are some “variables” you will have to change. Always test the link before just publishing it on your site. I tried to test out all of the follow social networks, but since I don’t have some of them, I couldn’t test them.
When I mention that something has to be encoded below, I mean URL Encoded. This encoding changes all non-alphanumeric characters besides -_. (dash, underscore, period) to it’s hexadecimal value append to a % (percent) symbol. For example, a $ (dollar sign) would be turned into %24. Spaces are replaced with a + (plus) sign.
Variables: ENCODED_URL: Website url that is encoded. HASH_TAGS: Text of hashtags, separated by commas. Does not include the hash symbol. ENCODED_TEXT: Website Description or various text to be shown along with link. This content has to be encoded. ENCODED_TITLE: The website title or headline. Content has to be encoded. ENCODED_IMAGE_URL: An image url to be shared along with the URL. This has to be encoded. ENCODED_QUOTE: Same as ENCODED_TEXT, but is a quote you are sharing with others. QUOTE_SOURCE: The source of a quote. Either a person or a website link. Has to be encoded. YOUTUBE_USERNAME: A youtube username. Doesn't have to be encoded since all usernames are alpha-numeric.
