Facebook Carousel Link Posts For Pages

Facebook has been updated! Now, if you put a link into a post it can display in a pretty carousel! (See below) This was once reserved for ads but now it works on a normal post.

You can either grab pictures straight from the web page in the link or you can upload your own. It’s actually pretty simple. Paste the link and if there is only one image it will be displayed as normal, if there is two or more it will be displayed as a carousel. If you want to use your own images click the + at the bottom and then choose a relevant image (600px * 600px)

For displaying things like products, the carousel is great. It allows users to swipe through the different pictures and see the different products before they go to the website.
