Add a Title and/or Text to a Shared Link

Is there any way to add either a title, or text to a shared link? Primarily, I would like to do this with Twitter, Facebook and Linked IN.

I'm not sure what you are referring to... Please explain what you mean by title and text? I believe the answer might be to add open graph meta tags to your pages. Read: https://blog.kissmetrics.com/open-graph-meta-tags/

Sorry Ray... I should have provided more details.
When I add the "Share Buttons" for Facebook, Twitter and Linked IN - the link to the page is shared. What I want to do, is also share the page title or some predetermined text.... I can populate those dynamically, but I'm not sure how to include the added text to what gets shared. I think Facebook uses the "&t=<text goes here>" after the "u" (link) variable but I am not 100% certain of that. I'm not sure about the others at all.

Yes... that is handled with open graph meta tags. Read the linked page I posted in the previous thread and it should explain it all for you.
