Facebook has just rolled out larger images on link shares. According to the social network, “this will make your stories look even more beautiful on Facebook. The goal with this is to increase click-through rates on links as larger images are more engaging.”
This is a good move by Facebook that actually fits the new layout for newsfeed which has been rolling out to a few users over the past months. Facebook is definitely betting on users visiting the newsfeed rather than personal profiles or pages.
This update will however break the head of a few web designers as they will have to review the size of featured images on their websites. The recommended og:image size is now 1200x627px with a minimum of 560x292px. Below is an example of what the new link stories look like from ABC News.
