Facebook Higher Percentage of Text Restriction
However, removing text restrictions does not mean filling your ad images with written content. Marketers are still advised to use less amount of text on images pertaining to the fact a “clear and crisp message’ performs better than pictures filled with too much content. Facebook’s business manager has been designed to maximize value for not only businesses but people and entrepreneurs alike. Thus, their research indicates that less text performs better than otherwise.
Content strategy is complex but if done right can produce positive results. Images with less text with clear and concise messages willfully grab consumer attention.
