Grab site info (like facebook) when link posted in a post

Hello, I wonder if you would consider making the below suggestion.

On my forum, occasionally people add links to other websites, like youtube or news websites. They always forget to to add a description and basically they normally just add the link.

Would you be able to create a mod, that when people create a post with a link, the basics are grabbed from the link (like facebook does) so maybe gets the website page title, description and even images?

I think this would be quite popular

Cheers mally

I may do this if I find some free time, it would be really simple using this jquery plugin: http://markserbol.github.io/urlive/
