Yesterday, we announced improvements to Facebook search to help people discover more of the people, places and things they care about.
Apps are now more discoverable on Facebook with Graph Search. In addition to showing up in search results based on your app’s name, they can show up in search results based on criteria like "strategy games my friends play" or "apps my friends who live in San Francisco use." To optimize your app for Graph Search, please make sure your app details are up-to-date and that your app is properly categorized.
Please visit https://www.facebook.com/about/graphsearch to learn more and request access for the limited beta.
Now, when a person shares a link to a page in your app that contains a large image (200x200px or larger), it will be presented more prominently in news feed. These larger images draw higher engagement from friends, which drives more people to your app.
To take advantage of this improvement, be sure to include large images and tag them appropriately. Please provide the largest images you have, and we will automatically downsample and crop them for people based on the device they're using. For more information, please see our documentation and best practices.
As announced in November, the following changes will go into effect on February 6th, 2013:
