    If any of you are really experienced with FB posts, I need to know something.

    I know that if you click "add photo" you can put as many as you want, but they all show up together in a group.

    However, I'm writing a series of articles for a FB page on local issues, with photos.  However, I don't want them all at the top:  I want them with the paragraphs that reference the illustrations.

    If I insert the photos where I want them in a Word document, THEN upload to FB, will it keep that formatting?

      What you want is not possible.

    It depends how you'd like to present your work. You can click edit on the pictures and write a caption beside each one. I've seen some pretty long comments made in the caption, not just a title for a shot. When readers click to enlarge the pictures, they will see the wording that goes with the shot. It won't be immediately evident, like writing an article here, but you could tell readers that each picture has information when enlarged.Or maybe write an article on here, then show a link to it on Facebook. Not sure I'd attempt anything in depth on Facebook myself.

    People don't usually write whole articles on Facebook.  You would usually write the first paragraph, then provide a link to the article somewhere else.  For instance, you might create a Blogger blog and put the articles on there.

    Even if you write the whole article on Facebook, only a short excerpt shows up, and you have to click to read the rest.  Since you have to click to read the rest anyway, that click might as well take your reader to a blog where they can read comfortably, rather than a Facebook post which can't be nicely formatted.

    The other advantage of the blog is that they can then browse the other articles, without having to search Facebook for them (they do easily get lost on Facebook).

      This is for a special-interest group page, not on the FB main site

        That makes no difference.  Some special-interest groups do it by attaching Word documents instead of linking to a separate blog, but personally, I find that more annoying.

        Marisa's first reply is in my opinion the best way to do it. But, I have seen people post one picture and the content to go along with it as the main post, they then post a comment with an image and the next section of text and so on. The post then has multiple comments from you.

        FB is not built for what you intend to do, you have to find ways that make it work the best you can.

    There are writing groups on Facebook.   I would join one of them and ask.

    Both options posted here are good ones. I've done both: Upload all photos at once, then click on each photo to write descriptions of each. Or make an overall statement, then add each photo as a comment to the main statement.

    A little more difficult, but closer to what you say you want to do, is to make a PDF file of your word.doc that includes the photos in position, then export that PDF as a JPG and upload the JPG to Facebook. Readers will have to drag and drop the JPG to their desktop, then open and expand in preview in order to read it, but you'll have the formatting you want that way.
