I shared this Gawker story about Monica Lewinsky and it looks different on my Facebook news feed than my wall. Look at the following screenshots to see what I mean.
Notice how the news feed display includes a larger picture and subtext whereas the wall display is just the headline.
All of my friends and anyone who follows me will see it in the news feed 99% of the time. But for the random person who clicks to my wall to see my timeline of past things I shared, that Monica piece will look strange because there’s little context about why I’m sharing her, right?
