How do you post a link on Facebook so your Fans will see it?
Post a link with a BIG image!
Posting links on Facebook shouldn’t be rocket science, but – Facebook seems to conspire against links offsite. They’re downplayed in your Fans’ news feeds, and shown with a tiny thumbnail image that may not be your preferred visual.
But you can upload any image you choose, and have your link show up in news feeds with an eye-catching visual!
How to Post a Link on Facebook with a BIG Visual!
Posting a Facebook link with image is easy as 1-2-3! Here’s the step-by-step.
1. Go to the Status at the top of your Fan Page and type a bit about your blog post, including the full URL. It’s recommended not to use shortened URLs on Facebook, so users know where they’re going if they click the link.
The usual thumbnail preview will appear. Ignore it for now!
Notice that the link preview is gone – good!
3. Click Post, and you’ve got a Facebook link with image! Enjoy the big, eyecatching image in the news feed.
