How to add an image to your Facebook wall posts
Facebook now allows you to add an image to your wall posts!
So, that means if you want to jazz up your job posting with some neat custom images on each posting, it's as simple as adding the URL of where your image is hosted online.
With that, your posts can now look something like this:
Just make sure you have your image URL to hand when posting your role. Select Facebook as per usual, and on 'stage two' of posting (board's additional fields), paste the URL in the dedicated Facebook field:
* Be sure to tick 'non-required' fields to show these options:That's it, you're ready to post your image. You can also add a summary too if required, just use the dedicated field.!
Important - Please be aware we don't 'send' an actual image file to Facebook. We just provide the URL of where your image lives online, and Facebook will link to that.
If you post to Facebook regularly, then we suggest creating an 'image bank' somewhere. With that, you can simply add the URL of different images as and when you need them. This will obviously save you uploading a new image to your server for each post.
Image dimensions - Facebook will re-scale whatever image you provide to the dimensions of 470 x 895 pixels. Please make sure your image is at least this size to avoid it being enlarged and losing quality.
Optimal dimensions are 1200 x 630 pixels
