We recently released a new feature to brighten up your stripped down Briefly experience: images!
Now, when you pull sentences for a post, we’ll evaluate the post, including embedded images, and if we think an image is important, we’ll feature the image along with the text. We’re already finding that images add depth and color to the reading experience.
In some cases, the images are more than decorative. In the case of certain infographics or especially useful illustrations, you might find the image to be an essential companion for the text. For this reason, we are also supporting highlighting for images. As you read through the content of a post, feel free to highlight the image if it suits you, and the image will appear along with text on your profile page and in summaries in the anchor feeds.
We took them away, but they fought their way back. Welcome back, images! Text will not rule the day alone.
