Bigger Facebook Link Images For Increased Engagement

Facebook is beginning to introduce a new look for shared links on the social network, which typically have not received very high levels of engagement from users of the site. Marketers obviously don't like this, often preferring to upload an image to dominate a news feed post and place a link in a status along with it.

In a move to improve this situation, shared links now display with a larger 154 x 154 pixels image, and several more lines of 'teaser' copy from the destination URL. Check out a comparison of the new and old in the video above.
