Is there a way to provide a custom title, description and thumbnail for when my website pages are shared from within WeChat?
We have an iPhone app from which users can publish/share posts with their friends using WeChat (aka Weixin).
When sharing from the app a title, a description and an image are posted via the API for the shared page (these display as desired when shared from the app). Once shared the friends open these pages in WeChat (and not our app).
The problem is that when the friends re-share our pages using WeChat's own share button it loses the description we provided. It will re-share with the HTML title tag, the first image on the page (stretched or squished to a square thumbnail) and where the description was originally it just shows the URL of the page.
I have tried providing descriptions in a description meta tag but to no luck. I have even tried Facebook style/open graph og:description meta tags.
