I spent an hour researching online but no one seems to have the answer. On other sites I've been able to post my articles via URL on my Facebook FAN page with the picture, text popping up, but not HUB articles. No problem posting to my FB profile.
But with my fan page it comes up with just a link, no graphics. Not pretty.
All of my article post with pictures on my FB fan page. I copy and past the URL to the Facebook fan page though. I don't just click the Facebook "like" button on the right side of my articles. Here's my FB fan page link. You can see all of the articles come with the photo and summary.
Through Facebook I use a free service called networkedblogs.com. The service will take any RSS feed (from HubPages or blogs) and will auto post hub and blog updates to Facebook pages and even twitter. Its difficult to set up initially but once you've set it up its automatic.
Same for me too, Lauragowens. Like agilitymach, I post the link to my articles onto my fan page with no problem. It shows the images and hub title. I usually write a brief lead in followed by the link, then click on post.
thanks. I'm just so baffled why my images don't come through when I copy and paste the URL...hmmmm......this has never been a a problem for me to copy a URL to my FAN page and paste with a lead in, except with HUB.....
I've occasionally had my youtube videos just post a link without a picture on Facebook. It only does this when my videos are just posted. If I give them a an hour or two and then post, the picture will show with the link. Maybe you''re posting too quickly after the hubs have been published?
I've posted hubs that haven't passed QAP yet and have had them show photos, etc. They passed QAP a few hours after I posted to FB.
Does anybody link their articles in the comments on the fanpage? I've done it on other people's statuses where my hubs answer a certain question being asked, but there's no reason to link them in the comments, is there?
No, I mean linking them in the comments of the status itself. Such as:
Here is a hub about dogs. [Link in comments]
Facebook uses a set of algorithms nicknamed edgerank. NO ONE sees every post from every friend or page in their newsfeed - only those Facebook deems relevant - based on time decay, individual interaction and virality.
Certain post types get SEEN LESS in newsfeeds - from best to worst is text, graphic, graphic with link, link, share.
Ah, I see. However in my little world of agility, a "text only" status won't get shared beyond just my 700 FB fans. In order for it to go viral, it needs to have a picture and description I have found, or the agility community will zip by it. However, for only reaching your FB fan base without looking for it to go beyond that range, I'd think just text would work best. What do you think? I may try this text thing with link in comments.
I posted an article to my FB fanpage with only text in the status and the link in the comments It will be interesting to see how it does in comparison to the others that have the text, graphic and link.
Not well at all, actually. The minimum social media bump I get when posting to my Fan Page is 300. I've gotten only 25. But I figured that would happen as the link with the photo and hub summary are what draws the agility enthusiast to the page. It was a good experiment though.
I did post a link on a recipe hub for Northern Chili. I posted this on my personal page, which I hardly ever do. It, on the other hand, has 60 hits and is spreading. I only posted it a few hours ago. Because it's my personal page, I really don't expect much of a social media bump from it, either.
For my audience, it appears the link with the graphic and summary works best.
Thanks for your help I posted 2 of my hubs and they were fine thanks for the great info please could you look at my hubs and see if they are ok. They are how I got cheap car insurance you can too and the other one is western digital 1tb 2tb and 3tb hard disk drives for 100% reliability they are under the name of Chris Stephenson thank you so much I havn't had any visitors yet to my insurance hub it would be nice thank you so much
I have published only four hubs which do not contain pictures so I have not experienced this problem. I like my hubs to contain pictures though but find it difficult to do that (no wonder my profile picture is not seen). I am working on that to improve the quality of my hubs.
In reviewing my traffic sources recently, I noticed that I was getting traffic from a site called traffup.com, which I had never heard of before. I went to the site and signed up for it to see what it was all...
