Facebook today announced a new feature designed to increase the visibility of the platform's pages.
Publishers, as of today, can add many logos as shown below. These logos will appear next to anything posted on the page, but only in the "Customize and Search" sections… for now.
The reason the feature appeared now, according to Facebook, is that if you ask someone who read the news they will tell you στο on Facebook, although Facebook does not publishes news except for press releases at his official blog.
A Pew Research Center survey claims that only 56% of respondents could remember the source of an article when they clicked on a link from social networking sites.
Though it's a small change, anything that increases the visibility to publishers is always welcome. It remains to be seen whether this will have an effect on the end user remembering the source of the content when published on social networks.
