Some of you may be familiar with sharing links on Facebook.
If i try to share on Facebook an article from Wikipedia in Hebrew or in
Arabic, the Facebook interface offers to add a thumbnail not from the
article, but from the main page of that Wikipedia. The summary text
describing the link is also taken from the main page and not from the
I see the same problem for he, ar, el. Also for en if I try
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/العربية> I get pictures for the main
page, not for the page that redirects to. However, if I shorten the
URL to http://bit.ly/2u4hlw
it shows the correct pictures.
Thanks for confirming this.
I reported this to Facebook a few days ago, but i don't think that
it's possible to follow up bug reports there like in Bugzilla. So i
want to at least be sure that the bug is not on our side.
