Recently Facebook has made a minor change to the content which gets automatically pulled through when you post a link as a status update. You can now change the image that appears next to the link, giving you more control over how the update looks on your own Facebook page.
This is useful if the person creating the content has picked an image which is just plain boring. Or maybe they haven’t included one at all, which means that Facebook will hunt for any images it can find from the page and display a completely unrelated logo or banner ad as part of the update. Here’s how to do it:
- Write your post as normal, adding a link to pull the content through.
- Hover your mouse over the words “Upload Image” and click.
- Select the image you wish to use.
- The image will upload and your post will be ready to publish.
