Photo About Face on Facebook

Am I the only one noticing this? Since the launch of Facebook Home, the views and traffic of posts on the pages I administer reversed.

Where Facebook Five style posts -- image included -- did twice the traffic of regular text only, in the past two weeks text only alerts have the 2:1 advantage.  Even some links are doing as well.

Please comment if you have or have not seen this.  I have some fellow admins who see it, some have no change.

Doesn't make sense, unless . . . .

I haven't checked if Instagram images posted over to Facebook are scoring lower than photos placed directly.  Maybe Facebook is trying to game the system to favor it's property.

Is it an attempt to speed Facebook Home on mobile by going text only -- a la Twitter?
