Changes to image display when sharing profile pages

Greetings from pixiv.
Thank you for using our service.

On March 30th, 2021, we'll be implementing some updates changing how profile page images are displayed when shared on other platforms, such as social media. See an example of the new layout below.

We're updating the sharing system in order to make creators' information more appealing to everyone. Once implemented, when a profile page is shared on other platforms, the creator's profile image will be displayed more prominently and the text will include their request terms. Please don't hesitate to use this to share your own profile, or that of other creators!

Please note that this update covers the sharing of a profile page's cover image. Those who do not have a cover image set will be displayed as usual.
We acknowledge that it may be a hassle, but if you're interested in your cover image being shared, we ask that you please make the necessary preparations beforehand.

More details on the upcoming changes are listed below.

The new display pattern of these changes will change depending on whether your profile is shared using the Request feature or not.

■ When sharing the profile of creators not accepting requests, or tabs other than the Request tab

When sharing a profile page from a tab other than the Requests tab, nickname and self-introduction will be displayed. * Up until now, only the user icon was visible, but now the cover images will also be displayed.

* Depending on the platform or device you're using, there are times when only the nickname will be displayed.

■ When sharing your request terms via the "Manage requests" page, or otherwise by selecting your Requests tab from your profile page

If you've already created your request terms, the target price you've set in the text portion of your terms as well as your self-introduction will be displayed. * Please don't hesitate to share your profile page via your Requests tab or via Manage requests.

* Depending on the platform or device you're using, there are times when only your nickname and request terms will be displayed.

If you do not have a cover image set, your profile will display as described up until now.

You'll need to make the necessary changes to your cover image for when your page is shared, either by yourself or by others.

If you want to learn more about your cover image, please refer to the FAQ article titled: "I want to edit the appearance of my profile screen (cover image, Featured, etc.)"

Thank you for your patronage with pixiv.
