Hello @PatriciaW886 ,

 

With how social media works, the best you could do is an image version of it on social media, but sizing restrictions would likely mean that your followers would need to open the image in a new tab, or you'd need to take several individual screencaps of it. This is why we recommend just having an image that was included in the email alongside the link to it, if you don't like what the social platform includes in its auto-generated preview for the link.
