    Alt Text for FB


    Hi, maybe a stupid question but how to you add Alt-Text to FB images, is the Alt-Text you can add to an image in word automatically picked up in the HTML when you add it to Facebook?

    There is no proper evidence shown that Facebook is picking up ALT Text in their search algorithm. Try using #hashtag instead, as this is the most common way to let Facebook know that you are talking about a particular topic, although most people disagree with the power of #hashtag in Facebook. Anyway, even you are not using any #hashtag, Facebook still manage to show your post if anyone search a keyword that is included in your post, however, only the most recent one will be shown, and their will eventually show result from your friends or any content that have the closest relationship to your account activity.

    Hope this help! =)
