Hiding Images on the Library Facebook Page

Here’s a simple tip for managing images on your library’s Facebook page. The most recent five images added to your Facebook account display in a row at the top of the page. It’s always the most recent five photos but they display in random order — try reloading your page to see. I mention this because I think it’s confusing, and I’m not sure what the point is of randomizing the order of these.

If you frequently add photographs to your Facebook page, this row of recent photos can help your page look current, but there are times when the most recent photos don’t work so well. If you’ve uploaded more than five photographs of a recent event, for example, these will push other recent images out of the display. Or you may have some recent images like screenshots or logos that don’t really belong in that display.

It’s easy to hide images from the display. Just hover over the image and you’ll see a small x in the upper right. Click on this to hide the image from the display. This only hides it from this row of photos, and the image will still be visible in the album and other photo displays.
