Currently if you share a Wikipedia page on various social networks the article doesn't display well. To remedy this we should show an image and a description (see related task T142090)
- og:image meta tag is added to all pages in main namespace (probably via TextExtracts extension)
- og:image is only added if a feature flag is enabled
- Verify the description shows up in WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter shares.
Previous task description
During the New Readers workshop, we learned that Wikipedia links don't display well in Whatsapp. This is also true on other websites. Apparently this is solvable by updates to metadata.
I will do more research at some point, but maybe you know something and we can expand on this.
@JKatzWMF says there may be an existing task for this.
