        "description": "4 After spending several weeks on building mylinkpreview.com (ReSTful API for requesting link previews) we've finally launched a MVP. We are thrilled to see what you guys think of some of our features, such as: is URL safe (beta), embedding a fully responsive link preview on any website\/app and the design of the previews. Hey this is awesome! Would love to pick your brain on your experience getting this off the ground! As of now I am simply posting about mylinkpreview around websites like indiehackers, reddit and product hunt to see what people think of the product. This way I can make modification to MVP and then start contacting clients (websites) to see if they will be willing to give us a try. If you have any thoughts, or comments I look forward to hearing them. Congrats Thanks.
