Next time you visit this box, try using one of these tips to clean up the look of your post.
1. Post your link as a photo
According to Buddy Media, photo posts receive interaction rates 39% higher than average. So instead of posting your link as a status, post a related photo and add the link to the caption. Use bit.ly, or another link-shortening site, to shorten the link so it looks clean.
2. Reposition your photos
If your photo’s default position isn’t quite right, you can easily reposition it to capture the right part. Simply click on the edit button in the top-right corner of the post and choose “Reposition Photo.”
3. Utilize link displays
You can clean up the look of your posts with links by using link displays. When you paste a link into the post box, a preview of the link’s content will appear after a few seconds. Once the link display appears, you can delete the link text from the post box without actually removing the link.
4. Customize your link displays
The link’s display name and description are automatically generated, but you can easily change them. Simply double-click the field and enter the new name or description.
If you don’t like the way the display image looks, you can upload a different one. Click “Upload Image” and choose a better fit from your files.
5. Use line breaks in your posts
Breaking up your text can make your posts easier to digest. Use line breaks to add emphasis, pause or to create a transition point.
