Heya Product Hunters! We made this little browser extension for ourselves while creating placid.app a while ago. We generate our share images for madewithvuejs.com and other sites automatically and wanted to have a quick way to check how our pages look when shared on social media! The plugin has been available for Chrome first. We now have 400+ users and they seem to like it, so we thought we’d make a Firefox version as well and start telling people about it 😉 It’s free ✨ and shows you link previews for Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. These are the most important for us, but please tell us if you miss a platform you’d like to check! I hope you’ll like it – if you do please leave a rating in the browser stores 💜 Cheers, Armin

Nice idea! I was actually checking the previews for the pages of Women Make a few days ago, that would have been useful! Just installed it for next time 👌

Thanks for this tool @arminulrich & @_feloidea. Do you think it will be possible to add a download button or a way to bookmark previews? I collect a lot of open graph previews (especially on Twitter) and your extension will save me a bit of work.

@arminulrich @yesnoornext Glad you like it, Vincent! Nice idea - we didn't think of saving yet. Do you collect the previews for inspiration? We'll see what we can do 💪

@arminulrich @_feloidea Yes, for inspiration, I'm a big fan of media illustrations and according to me the open graph previews help to be selective and improve the content. Maybe it could be a premium feature, let me know if you'll do it.

I use this every day to make sure my social share images look right on my blog posts! Saves me so much time from having to inspect the page and dig into the head tags! I also use https://placid.app to automate my Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest posts as well.
