2. They strip off the caption and add a #Postly text on the video.

Why do my Shortened Links not display Link Preview?

Link Preview does not display on Shortened Links because such links are routed via the Link Shortener server. This additional layer interferes with the Link Preview, making it impossible to render and display.

Can I post the same image to all my platforms?

Different platforms have a range of specifications for videos and images, typically, Instagram is one of the most sensitive platforms and you have to upload the right spec video and image for Instagram.
