Make Sway look clickable when sharing

When I shared to Facebook, the preview image is just a photo, so people think it's just a photo and don't click on it!
can you promote some icon, or something to show that it's not just a photo - the title does not overlay or anything. I had to tell people it was a sway - they loved it then.

    Make it more visible! And, make it easier and more enticing to see that there is a link to an album that opens up to a whole new world/story for them to view.

    Hi ! I just made my first sway and I absolutely love how intuitive it works. Then when I wanted to share my review (it was a small review) on my FB page I got the message that I had to switch to my personal facebook account to be able to post it !! Why couldn't I post on my dedicated FB page dear Office Jezus !! What a bummer! Now as usual I guess there's a hidden trick which someone is going to explain to this dummy. Please say yes and help me :) :)

    Hi Mark,
    Thank you for the feedback. We are considering using different visual treatments for the image that is being shared. I am interested to hear how you feel about having the Sway brand icon on the image, or perhaps Sway icon with a 'Made by <your name>' , or perhaps even a thumbnail preview of what the Sway looks like if they were to click in to view it.

    Let us know!

    Some indicator on Facebook to get the user to click on it.
    It's not obvious on Facebook that the item is Sway. It just looks like a picture so no one is likely to click on it.
