is Instagram messing with Dropbox by adding a stupid bunny graphic to links?

is Instagram messing with Dropbox by adding a stupid bunny graphic to links?

Does anyone know why there is a bunny graphic added to every dropbox link, when I send them in chat on Instagram?  it's a line drawing for a bunny drinking bubble tea and it looks terrible and unprofessional.  I see lots of other people are having this problem and tried all sorts of things, so before you start suggesting the things on the troubleshooting script, we've tried all that, could you please try posting a link in chat and see what happens.

I think it might be facebook messing with Dropbox but I don't have a way to test it.  It happens from my Android phone and my Windows 10 computer, both Firefox and Chrome..

thank you!

Hi @dennis z. 

 

Its intentional - thats part of the Dropbox site. 

 

If the software can display or show the file you have sent as a link it will display a preview of it, if it cannot display the file then you get the bunny icon (same as if you go direct to the website) and then you are asked to download it.

thanks for letting me know.  it looks so terrible and embarrassingly unprofessional!  its very disappointing that someone thought THAT was a good default image. 

is there any way to turn it off or at least change it?  the links I'm send are just a folder with jpg images, could I pick one of those?

I've seen other messages complaining about it, from a year ago..  how is no one capable of doing anything about about it?  what needs to happen to get someone to change it?  thanks

Who has the authority to change the Bunny Thumbnail Preview?  

I don't care why someone thought that was a good image to add to every dropbox link by default, but I want it changed or deleted.  it looks so bad and people have been complaining for more than a year.

so does anyone know who can address this?

thanks!
