Note title displayed when sharing note through a link

Idea

Here's a link to a note that's in a public notebook I curate called "The Iceberg":  This is how Big Oil will die – NewCo Shift

When I share it in Facebook, the image attached is what people see. This is so not cool.

It does not show the title of the note, and that note title is what would helps someone clearly see the relevance of the link to whatever conversation they were engaging.

It shows "Welcome back".  To whom is it saying this? What if the person has never used Evernote before? It's off-putting, to say the least.

Here's the thing: the link is not about Evernote.

Saying "welcome back (to Evernote)" hijacks focus from the conversation to Evernote, distracts from the conversation at hand, and makes Evernote look the exact opposite of relevant. It comes across as needy, insecure, self-aggrandizing...

If the note title is there, and people can see that the link is relevant to the conversation in which they are engaged, they're more inclined to click on it to read what content is at the other end.

And, since I've saved this note in a published, openly-shared notebook, they should be able to read the note on a free, read-only, web-version of Evernote, without having to download and install the app, which interrupts/disrupts/distracts from the conversation flow.

The easier it is to share an Evernote note with someone with no obligation, the more exposure people can have to Evernote, and the more opportunity there is for someone to interact with Evernote and discover they might want it for themselves.

Please fix this.

I wasn't able to use the link; it seems to a private link opening my Evernote account.
Are you sure it's a public url?

You're right, I used the wrong (internal) link. The correct (external, sharing) link is https://www.evernote.com/shard/s90/sh/d4eb08bf-ceb3-410b-b313-fe9039d17102/9fe0f9f7344d29d542773343fdcc317b

And, I've confirmed that using the correct link does present the note title.

If you could please confirm you can access this note, I'd appreciate your help.

Thanks again.

Cheers.

I like your link on the problems the "traffic enforcement industry" will face. LOL

Here is an enjoyable video on the legal nightmare of autonomous vehicles, especially during the multi-year transition where there is a mixture of normal cars, driving-assisted cars, and fully autonomous cars. In an accident, who do you sue?

Not sure how far into that conversation we should be having here on the Evernote forum, but one thing that is really important to appreciate is that the future is not beholden to the problems of today or, put another way, problems today go away when standards change tomorrow.

So, for example, I'm sure there was a time when saddles were a real problem for women trying to ride side-saddle...but, if there were too few women to buy saddles, saddle makers likely did not want to devote the time to creating a new configuration for a market not large enough to make money. 

Then cars came along. Side saddles were no longer a problem to solve because saddles - and the horse as primary transportation - just went away.

The conversation about suing an owner will not be a problem when "ownership" goes away. The world is not required to conform to the convenience of litigation. How to litigate is a problem that may likely just go away.

Or, let's consider any other mass transit option where individual riders do not own them - airlines, trains, city buses and subways. When something happens there, what do we do? We sue an airline, or a rail operator. Or the city transit authority. We already live in that world, and "who do we sue" is not some sort of hindrance to the use of any of these forms of transit.

I could expand further on this, but, just think about it.
