Lightroom Classic: Copy camera settings metadata as text

I post a lot of photos to Facebook groups and some require that camera settings be included (i.e., camera, lens, aperture, shutter speed, ISO).  Is there a way to copy that specific metadata information from a photo in Lr so that I can simply paste it into a Facebook post or comment?

If not, that would be a nice, yet simple, feature addition to Lr.

I've searched for the answer to this here and elsewhere online and the only thing that comes up is the ability to copy metadata from one photo to another.  Those options don't seem to even include basic camera settings for a photo.

Thanks.

My first thought was to look at Jeffrey Friedl's website.
He makes great plug ins for LR. It's donationware, so you can pay as little as $0.01.

But I can't seem to quickly find something that does what you want.

But looking further, this one might do the trick:
