    Pros: 

    Very easy, very fast!

    Cons: 

    No rich snippets support

    Very clean look and very easy and clear use! Would love to have a function to define what type of page it is (product, company) so it can also show which rich snippets to implement.

    Pros: 

    Clean design, very fast,intuitive and very useful. I like it

    Cons: 

    if possible add a way to refresh link already posted before meta change

    This product is just as simple as amazing. It provide a fast feedback on meta change and also provide a way to edit meta tags with just clicks. REALLY LOVE IT

Hey Hunters 😽 I'd like to introduce my recent web project, Hey Meta 🎉 I basically made this because I didn't find a tool (other than Facebook Developer Tools and Twitter Card Validator), that would show me how my website would look like after I've shared it to social media and searching for it on Google. While there were some tools that would show me the meta tags from my website, I needed something visual and a way to see changes in real time There's still stuff I have to work on (and fix), but I wanted to put it out there for you to use. Let me know if you find any issues or if you found it useful to you 😉 Cheers, Igor ✌️

hey @curiousigor, nice product👍 when I update the meta tags on my page, how long does it take for your site to notice the changes?

@philreinking on Hey Meta it's instantly, but Facebook, Twitter, and Google might take a post or share for them to refresh, but usually, that's pretty quick 😉 The plan is to integrate "sending" the refresh request to those sites from Hey Meta, but I still have to figure how to do that 🤔 If you want to refresh it on their servers manually, you can do it here: Twitter: https://cards-dev.twitter.com/va...

I always find tools like this to be very helpful and in my opinion this is a really nice implementation. Can I ask... what's the ideal image size for an image? I notice that the one image is used to supply three different meta tags. Is there a standard size (genuinely don't know about this stuff).
Igor Stumberger
Igor StumbergerMaker@curiousigor · Designer, Maker of Hey Meta and Dockey
@mickc79 while there is no standard size for the images, most social websites use the ratio around 2:1. Facebook, for example, recommends images bigger than 600x315px, while Twitter's minimum requirement is 300x157px. So if your image is 600px or wider, with the ratio around 2:1, you should be good on most platforms 💪

@curiousigor 600x300 it is. Thanks for replying and good luck with the product.
