Improve the appearance of your Facebook status link

How to remove the URL text on your Facebook links

Many of my friends tell me they are annoyed to see those URL text links that they paste when they wanted to share a find on the internet. I share their sentiments because it does make your post untidy not to mention redundant. Redundant since immediately after pasting a URL, it creates an icon of sort just below the URL link.

How does other users remove it? It is very simple. With just the backspace (or delete key) you can turn your Facebook status link from this:

to this:

Here is how:

  • Add the link as it is done normally : Go to the site you wish to share and copy the URL from the address bar. Go back to Facebook then paste the copied address to the status pane.
  • Wait until Facebook finishes fetching the snippet : Just after pasting, Facebook automatically fetch the snippet to the linked page and adds an icon link.
  • Remove the URL text link : Put the cursor on the URL text link and delete it using backspace or delete key depending on the position of the cursor.
  • Done, just thing left to do : Click the Post button.
