    Anyone can guess what it means for “non-media” page? Pages that only want to keep engagement with the fans, not get fans to click a link.

    I wonder if Facebook is pushing this so they can compete with Twitter as a news source. I use Facebook to keep tabs on friends and family and I turn to Twitter for the headlines. Maybe by pulling some of the photo posts Facebook will open room for news and updates and pull more users in.

    Thoma,

    Testing will be your best friend. I would suggest not linking out to really thin stuff (like their specific comment about meme-sites) and keeping on with the image posts. I’d test out working to have posts with goals of getting likes and others with goals of getting comments and see what works for you!

    I haven’t actually noticed a switch from the old-style link display to new. I wonder if they’re still rolling it out? For me, images still get much more prominence in my feed.

    As long as you can’t share what a person writes on a link, we will keep using images.

    “Starting soon, we’ll be doing a better job of distinguishing between a high quality article on a website versus a meme photo hosted somewhere other than Facebook” — The phrase “hosted somewhere other than Facebook” suggests that they’re more concerned with lowering the frequency of posts that link to outside sites with meme-like content — not necessarily that they’ll be serving image posts less frequently (i.e., images hosted on Facebook). Any thoughts/clarification on this?

    I don’t go to Facebook for news..ever. I go to Facebook to see what my friends are doing, laugh at cute kittens and funny jokes. Not news. Really? News?
