Why you should upload links not photos to Facebook


This is a short fun post to make a point about Facebook reach.

When you upload a link you get much better reach than uploading a photo.

Here's the evidence (and this repeats in multiple studies):


Plus if you upload a photo first you'll only have one place to write copy on Facebook AND you'll have to put the link into the copy.

It's also irritating for users because clicking the photo won't take them to the landing page.

We'll be covering this topic in more depth in a Masterclass in our soon-to-be-launched Digiterati Academy.
