Another Facebook Algorithm Tweak

Standard

Newsfeed will show fewer text-based status updates from Pages, but will serve more text-based status updates from users. They are saying we should switch to more media- and link-based content and use the link share tool rather than embedding a link in the text of the update.

“The best way to share a link after this update will be to use a link-share, so it looks like the one below. We’ve found that, as compared to sharing links by embedding in status updates, these posts get more engagement (more likes, comments, shares and clicks) and they provide a more visual and compelling experience for people seeing them in their feeds.”

    • Yeah, I don’t really get it. Like pasting a link looks the same as sharing a link to me. The only thing that I don’t like is when it embeds it and we have it in the status. It looks much cleaner to just delete the url out after it embeds it.
